oxford by pictures.

I was going to do a step by step of what we got up to during the day but there was so much to cram into the post, i didn't want to over fill it with pictures so here are a few of the highlights of yesterdays trip to oxford.
Haha saul thinks he looks like a bird in this picture
So that was my day in oxford, I decided to wear my new butterfly top from H&M, i layered it over a dress i got from H&M in the sale, it was so hot yesterday that i now have ridiculous tan lines. We headed to the Natural history museum in oxford one of my favorite places, i have become a little obsessed with butterflies my new collection of jewellery is based around bugs. I will be relieving them tomorrow. We sat and had a picnic by the river and watched the people punting, i did some sketches and we walked around the botanical gardens. I managed to do a little thrifting and i bought an old satchel from a little shop (the red one in pic no.9) Then we had an evening meal at the turf tavern and sipped ice cold lemonade, the last picture is leaving the tavern, it reminds me of something you would see in a harry potter film.
