Every year me and three of my eldest sisters go away for a weekend together. We see a lot of each other in every day life but there’s something very special about two whole days and nights together – getting ready to go out, waking up to your sister’s snoring ;-), eating breakfast together. Happy times.
My sisters love going abroad (they adore Paris) but we had planned to go back to Italy this year. In the end the Ryan Air / Monaco fiascos made us decide to spend our weekend together nearer to home in Bristol instead. We had a lovely weekend. We stayed in Clifton and could walk just about everywhere we wanted to go. (On that note, a huge thank you to everyone on Instagram who recommended places to eat and drink)
On to clothes, I really struggle to pack light. Seems I also struggle to pack anything light – all black for me!
To travel I wore my Mango coat, old Theory navy leather leggings, Office boots (similar here), Topshop starry shirt (old but I have this one too).
Friday night out on the town – cocktails in Milk Thistle, dinner in Shop 3 Bistro and dancing and Dark and Stormies in various locations across Bristol!
& Other Stories shirt, last year’s Zara faux fur coat (very similar here), old Zara leather flares, old Zara sock boots. I still love the faux fur coat. My sister has this slightly longer one from Mango which is just gorgeous on. Moody shot outside a club.
We spent Saturday in Bristol Lido, I had one of the best massages I’ve ever had but bafflingly they have no relaxation space apart from the hot tub or restaurant. Luckily our Air BnB apartment was only five minutes walk away so we nipped back for a little rejuvenating nap.
This morning we went for a long bracing walk. I didn’t realise how much colder than London it would be and had to break out my new beret for warmth!
Boden cashmere roll neck, old Zara coated skinnies, Stan Smiths, Topshop beret (black has sold out but grey here)
I’m on the train home now, ready to give my liver some TLC before the Christmas festivities start in a few weeks.
