Can you see that smug look on my face?? That's because I'm right in the middle of one of my favourite possible days - a good old British day out.Oh...and I just spent £5 on traditional English sweeties!
Although I've been lucky enough to see a lot of truly spectacular places and take in some of the worlds best landscapes there's still no place quite like home for me. I grew up taking regular day trips to different areas of the English countryside, it brings back such great memories when I visit them again. My Dad and I ventured out this week to the Yorkshire Dales taking time to stop off at an old favourite, 'Sweet Memories', a sweet shop in a small town called Thirsk. Once we had the provisions for the day (not the most nutritious!) we went on to visit an old abbey then finally to the seaside where we met up with my brother who is at university nearby.
Perhaps subconsciously channelling my childhood, I opted to wear a girlie combination of a bird print dress and Spring pastels; my new baby...the pale pink Miu Miu, a matching soft cashmere scarf and a pastel green cardigan. To stop it getting too sickly sweet (bad pun intended...sorry folks!) I wore knee high suede boots and my studded wrap watch.

Do you have a particular place/s you used to day trip to with your family?
