Additionally, it made a pretty cool backdrop for some pretty windy Autumnal outfit snaps. Once again, I’m wearing my COS jumper (3 posts in a row- sorry folks) but with the addition of my other favourite skirt. After shooting this skirt at work last week on a ‘ways to wear leather’ feature, I fell in love with it. At £25 and in one of the most wearable colours of this season, I couldn’t say no. Plus, when worn with a leather jacket, it doesn’t equal for leather overkill or anything too biker/Pretty Woman esque, which in my opinion is definitely a good thing, especially when out for a light lunch…
Before our visit to the castle, we made a trip to a gorgeous cafe in the city centre called Homemade. After doing my routine foodie ‘recommendations’ ask on Twitter before a trip, I was told about this lovely little place (thank you whoever recommended it- I’ve completely forgotten!) and had it down as a place to grab lunch.
Being a relatively fussy eater, and without a doubt always opting for Italian food this place was right up my street. Combining delicious salads, toasties and ciabatta, lasagne’s AND afternoon teas, I’m almost certain this place was made for me. I opted for the med veg and mozzarella ciabatta sandwich- and finished up lots of lustful stares at the cakes (I was very full…) but I definitely recommend it to any Nottingham locals- I wish I’d known about it sooner!
