A Very Vintage Trip to the UK

Hi! I’m Lauren – remember me? I’ve been away for awhile on a much-needed vacation to the UK. Hooray! Vacay!

It was a wonderful, restful and also stimulating trip. We did many wonderful things, and I have much to share, so just to start, here’s a quick overview:

Our first full day in England was spend daytripping into London to visit the wonderful ladies of Revival Retro Boutique. I took my suitcase full of shoe samples, left with a back full of dresses and a new business relationship. 🙂 Royal Vintage Shoes will now be available from Revival both online and in store.

Testing, testing 1-2-3 – I wore the new “Claire” oxfords into London to check comfort and durability. A+. (Claires are coming for Fall 2017 – pre-order will open in August)

A moist hike around hilly Bakewell revelead idyllic laneways, cheese shops, and Bakewell tarts, oh yes!

Not gonna lie – this was primarily my “uniform” for most of the trip. It was chilly in the North and we did a lot of hoofin’ it, so I lived in this Emmy Design cardigan, Freddies of Pinewood jeans, and Burnley and Trowbridge headscarf.

Not a bad view from the highest tower at Conwy Castle, eh?

Another to test, and more vigorously – I wore the new “Rosie” WWII Double Buckle boots for all of our days in North Wales, and really put them through strife. On this day we ascended the old city walls of Conwy and looped the town entirely.

Oh hey, lamb!

The last couple days were spent in the hot hot heat back in the South. I finally got to wear one of the fabulous dresses I’d bought at Revival Retro, and I cannot say enough good things about it. (More about this dress later)

It was hard to leave such a beautiful part of the world.

We had such a great time! I have more to share with you, including more information on the new Fall shoes I tested, so stay tuned, lovelies. <3
