Cambridge Market


Someone (can't remember who) requested market photos and as I just visited the wee Cambridge market with my sister, I thought I would comply. This market is a lot like the farmer's markets I visit back home: fresh flowers, baked goods, crafts, and all. Although, since we are in a rather tourist-y spot, they threw in some classy, themed undergarments...

Before I left the States I hunted around for a good pair of black jeans...they just seemed so practical! These are highwaisted (which I love) and really stretchy so they're comfortable as well. I wore these on my flight, but I never got a full outfit picture that day. As with everything else I packed, I decided I had to be able wear the items in at least three different combinations before I would let myself pack them. Although, now that I'm hear there are a couple of outfits I think I might just repeat rather than remix the pieces...sometimes when you find a combination you like you return to it.











Outfit details:
Myne silk blouse via Gilt (worn backwards & knotted)
BCBG jeans
Topshop flats
Deux Lux purse
Cheap Monday sunglasses

  3. When I went to Cambridge four years ago, I saw ducks! A mummy one and little babies all in a row like the book. Did you see 'em?

    I had a great tea near the shop Ark. I hope you managed to visit because they had an awesome selection of Penguin merchandise.

  7. Gorgeous! I remember shopping in this marketplace and having it be dry as a whistle one minute and raining cats and dogs the next. My friends and I had to stick it out under the tents for a few minutes until the rain got lighter, so we could make a run for it back to Pembroke! haha

    Would it be possible for you to take a picture outside Pembroke's main gate? That would bring back a lot of memories for me.

  9. Oh my my how I miss this place.

  18. I always enjoy your blog but having grown up between London and Cambridge it is such a delight to see you somewhere so very very familiar. I recently pictures on my blog a union jack umbrella purchased from one of those very stalls, classy huh? ;)

  20. That's a great travelling outfit: simple, unfussy and elegant. And I really like that blouse worn backwards (no fear of egg silhouettes that way) ; )

  21. I would looove to see a big outfit wrap-up/packing guide at the end of your trip. I'm planning a three-week holiday to Europe next summer and my goal is to pack as lightly as possible and still feel good about what I'm wearing. Your remixes are incredibly inspiring.

  22. I agree with Emily just a bit above me. Unfussy and elegant for travel. But the pop of colour is really nice. It makes you fit right in to these great images.
