After visiting Nottingham several times before to visit Joe- I can safely say before now our visits have essentially consisted of visiting the city centre shops and making a bee-line for our favourite chain Italian restaurants (not that there's anything wrong with that of course...) However, this time we managed to explore a little more of the city and eat in a few new tasty places- which I can't wait to share with you all. One of the places I was shown on my mini tour of the city was this lovely marina, lined with rows of colourful 'Rosie and Jim esque' canal boats, which we couldn't help but take a peek at...

After strolling up and down and becoming suitably windswept, we headed into the city for a spot of window shopping and some delicious lunch! I opted for my current outfit of choice (I may or may not have worn this skirt 3 times this week...) which includes my go-to COS jumper and the cutest bouclé-style skirt from my favourite online boutique, Olive. I teamed the duo with my trusty leather jacket and worn in loafers for the perfect level of school-girl geekiness that seems to constantly make an appearance in my outfits.

What have you been up to this weekend? Have you discovered any beautiful new places?

  49. I'm looking at buying a flat near here :) If you like italian food you should try Dolce in Hockley (in Nottm city centre - if you need directions feel free to tweet me) it's an independent place and the food is so good, and mega cheap. Perfect :D x

  58. Can't get enough of your blog. I've been looking for a skirt exactly like that for autumn, it looks perfect for chilly walks.
    If you don't mind me asking, what do you use to style your hair? It's beautiful!

  60. Love your skirt! As for Nottingham, I grew up there so I'm very glad to now be living in London! I hope you manage to find some cool stuff to do there, I would recommend getting a drink (malteser hot chocolate is my fave) at The Malt Cross on St James's Street just off the Old Market Square. It's totally non-profit and lovely there - sit upstairs! xx
