#ThrowbackThursday: Bibury

Outfit details:

Zara floral dress (similar here and here), Zara trench coat (similar here), Ardene black flats, Coach borough bag (in black here)

To quote my Dad, “This place is so freakin’ cute!” It’s a pretty good summary of Bibury, one of the small towns of the Cotswolds in the United Kingdom. I had seen pictures of this cottage-studded town and knew I had to see it for myself. Unfortunately, it’s pretty secluded, which meant we couldn’t take a train there. So we bravely navigated the backwards streets of the English country side to feast our eyes on the adorable cottages of the Cotswolds.

We spent three days sight-seeing and eating and we stayed at The Catherine Wheel, which serves the most delicious sticky toffee pudding- it’s a must-have!

I wore a floral dress and trench coat (both Zara), due to the always imminent threat of rain. And despite my rambling about how comfortable expensive shoes are, I wore a pair of black flats from Ardene that cost less than $15. I absolutely love these flats. They have no support, but I’ve never had a blister from them either. Also, because they’re inexpensive I can wear them constantly without feeling bad about throwing them out at the end of the trip (which I did). If you’re looking for a simple faux leather flat (in any colour) Ardene should be your go-to store!

We visited Arlington Row (a few times) to gawk at the beautiful cottages all covered in greenery.

My favourite meal was our dinner at The Swan Hotel. I had a stunning butternut squash parmesan risotto. Seriously, absolutely delicious. (And then we went back to The Catherine Wheel for some more sticky toffee pudding.)

I love finding these old-world towns, but they seem to be hidden away and hard to find. Do you know  of any other beautiful towns I should visit?

    I visited Bibury a few weeks back too, such a gorgeous place. My other favourites in Cotswold are Bourton-on-the-water and Castle Combe.
