Leaving the big city

...And entering Bath, a small town in the southwest of England characterized by its 18th-Century Georgian architecture and use of Bath stone (and overall calming beauty). The idea of road-tripping to Bath was planted in my mind long before I even booked my London tickets. After all, when Shini asks if you want to drive over there in a Jaguar F-Type (borrowed, of course), you don't really think twice about it. And so the plan was hatched. Though we hit a few snags, we were eventually on our way, chips – I mean, crisps – in hand, music blaring, testing the acceleration on that bad boy.




A visit to Cereal founders Rosa and Rich's flat in Bath made me want to rip everything apart in my own apartment and start anew. If there were a list of people I admire both professionally and personally, they would be at the top of that list. God I sound like such a fan girl huh (if you watched Shini's snapchat that day, you may have seen me melting into their wall wailing about how amazing everything was)? But really, I love their taste, thoughtfulness about everything they do, and ability to keep their brand so consistent and cohesive no matter what they're working on.



We stayed for a night at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. Though we arrived late and had to leave early, we took advantage of the property as much as we possibly could, starting with a nightcap at The Montagu Bar, squeezing in an early morning dip at the indoor pool in some peaceful moody light, and of course grabbing a breakfast at the Dower House Restaurant on the grounds. The tea list is impressive here, so don't miss out on that if you happen to be passing through Bath. I wish I could have done a proper afternoon tea, but it'll be something to look forward to for the next time.



I didn't want to leave Bath so soon, but big city calls.



(P.S. These crazy pants I'm wearing are now on sale!)

    1. I got the pants in a US 0! They're a cropped style so they work ok for me, length-wise.

  13. Love love love the outfits in that penultimate photo! Bath is such a beautiful city, I love the Georgian architecture (especially that famous crescent), the Pump Room and the countryside all around - feels like stepping into Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey! xx
