When I was studying in Liverpool, undoubtedly my favourite place to go for a cup of tea (or panini. or slice of cake. or jacket potato) was Cuthbert’s Bakehouse. Perched in the middle of Mount Pleasant, and disguised between a small bookshop and other quaint red brick shops- it was the perfect escape when things seemed to be a little testing. Additionally, it was the first place I ever met Miss Cohen- the day before I was to leave the city, making it a pretty pleasant send off to say the least…
…and here we are. Nearly two years after I decided to leave, curled up on a cosy round table near the back of the cafe with Rebecca, Jazmine and Amy- and having a pretty damn nice time at that. However this time I stop for some quick outfit photos (I promise the rest of the cafe was empty, no one deserves to be involuntarily subjected to my posing) and instead order the classic combination of hot dog and erm, breakfast tea (who said you had to have tea with scones huh).
I decided to sport my new denim pinafore dress for some tea and cake, and paired it with this gorgeous ruffly-high necked ’70s inspired blouse from Miss Selfridge (if you haven’t checked out their new collection I highly recommend doing so)- which now seems to be one of my favourite go-to combinations. Of course no outfit of mine seems to be complete without a wildly over the top brimmed hat, so I topped the look off (see what I did there) with my fedora, and the comfiest shoes in the world. Perfecto.
