The weather has well and truly turned here in Bristol so I thought it was time for a little sunshine and daisies on the blog. This is the relaxed outfit I wore on last month’s Bristol Doors Open Day – the one day of the year when some of Bristol’s most interesting buildings are open to the public and available to wander around for free.
Every year Mr Ship-Shape and I make the most of this opportunity and this year we went to libraries, chapels and art galleries. These photos were taken in Clifton’s Victoria Square after we’d been to see Clifton Rocks Railway, part of a fascinating train line that used to exist between Clifton and Hotwells before being turned into air raid shelters during WWII.
For the day I picked a pretty casual ensemble of flat white brogues, tan trousers and a denim shirt I found on a recent charity shopping trip. It’s got a Western/cowboy vibe to it and I like to think it brings me one step closer to a look that’s part Yosemite Sam, part Steel Magnolias.
I know most people love autumn and all the pumpkin spiced lattes and cosy knitwear it brings, but I’m already pinning for the sunshine and long days of summer – how about you?
