(Dress: Topshop, Hat: River Island (old but similar here)

Photos by Joe Galvin

I'd like to say the second day during our stay at The Pig meant we were up bright-eyed and bushy tailed- but with a cloud-like marshmallow duvet (and the uncertainty of rain outside) we stayed in a little longer and waited until the few clouds burnt away, before racing down to breakfast, which was arguably the best I've had (read: any breakfast buffet that has homemade banana bread on offer gets a thumbs up from me). With a couple of hours to spare, Joe and I decided to explore the grounds a little, stumbling across ponies (or, ahem, baby horses) and some of the most beautiful gardens lining the hotel.

Naturally for the occasion, my somewhat theatrical straw hat came out (what is it with us Brits and a straw hat in the country?) as well as a favourite summer addition from Topshop, which although was certainly overdressed for an afternoon on a minibus and the Victoria line- left me feeling suitably Kate Bush like. At least for ten minutes anyway...

  36. I love a good straw hat, I bring mine in all my trips. I'm actually going to DC tomorrow for a wedding and I have my straw hat sitting on top of my suitcase, you never know when you'll need it. Your dress is so feminine and subtle, very sweet. So glad you got to enjoy the day after the rain passed, sometimes a little extra relaxation time inside can be a boost to go out and explore. You have to make the most of it right?!
