walking the streets of oxford.

I thought I would share with you a glimpse of our trip to oxford, I took a crazy amount of photos as i always do when we take a trip to anywhere, so I thought I would break the post up and not overload you with all the photos. Oxford is one of my favourite cities, the architecture is so beautiful and I love just wandering around the streets.
I went with mum, saul and his Girlfriend Lillie, I really wanted to find some vintage gems, I snagged a few goodies whilst searching through the charity shops and vintage haunts. How amazing are those floral brogues! Unfortunately they were in a size 5 but if they were mine i would of grabbed those up! 
For Breakfast I took mum to a little cafe that i often go to when I am in oxford Its called the cafe bar, I had a large chunk of Blueberry drizzle cake and mum had a lovely carrot cake, obviously with a good strong cup of tea, to get us ready to stroll around the beautiful streets of oxford. I decided to wear my vintage woven leather shoes, after the fact that the sole fell off the other day, i superglued them back together and they glued much to my surprise! They Beauties cost me £5 from a lovely vintage store in Brighton.
Alot of people have been asking where i got my satchel from it was a second hand gift from my little brother, it was originally from Topman there are similar ones here and here



  1. Wonderful pictures! I love Oxford as well, my great aunt lives there and I just love visiting her and that gorgeous city! xxx

  2. Ooh those brogues are the prettiest I've ever seen! Although they wouldn't have fitted me either :(
