To visit Cambridge as a tourist.
This might seem like a random "if you haven't, you should" but I live a 25 minute drive from Cambridge but have never done the tourist thing there. I go to Cambridge regularly for shopping, dinner and drinks but Glenn suggested we go and visit some museums so that is what we did today.
(I am a bit of a wally and left my laptop at work, so I am doing this post from my phone so we will see how it turns out. This does mean allmy pics are from my trusty I-Phone and my olloclip lens.)
We first visited the fitzwilliam museum and I have to openly admit I'm not a classic art fan, however I did enjoy some of the antic furniture. I love all the intricate details. The images below are of a chair and square piano.
The ceiling on the way into the museum was also stunning and with my wide lens I managed to capture most of it.
We then walked back towards the centre and I spotted a couple of contemporary art shops. The image below highlights exactly the kind of art work I prefer, unique is probably a good way to describe it.
We then stopped for some lunch at a small cafe opposite St Johns college called Le Patissier. I enjoyed a yummy falafel and humous baguette (yes I'm one of those annoying people who loves that kind of food) with a caramel frappe.
We then sat there for a bit and soaked up the sun :) My outfit today was very summery and I forgot to take a picture of it in all it's glory but here is one from me planning it out this morning.
Lace Top- £15 Topshop
Frilly Socks- £3:50 Topshop
Shorts- £2 Charity Shop
Necklace- £3 Lovefrommisbehave
My shorts were longer but my wonderful mum shortened them for me in ten minutes (she is amazing on a sewing machine). Hope your enjoying your bank holiday weekend.
I have now updated this post and embedded the correct links.
