Kayla has been my best friend ever since University and we have always been there for one another through the ups and downs; the peaks and troughs; the strikes and gutters! We had a lovely free day together before heading off to a wedding so I decided to introduce her to Rochester: cobbled streets, cream teas and the best charity shops around.
I will say if you're ever in Rochester, Kent, head to Tiny Tim's Tea-Room; the portions are MASSIVE! Everytime I go for a bite to eat they seem to supersize everything, which is great (I love cream teas when you don't have to worry about rationing the cream!) and the giant scone I had this time with fresh strawberries was simply delicious.
We scoured the charity shops and one in particular which sells pure vintage clothing for Charity shop prices. Kayla picked up this stunning two piece for £10....rather gutted I didn't spot it first! She looks fantastic in it.
Now I have been on a hunt for this dress from Miss Selfridge since last year. It sold out almost immediately and I've been searching ebay ever since. When I finally found it by complete surprise last week it was in my size and only £20 (fate, perhaps? Certainly!) I simply adore the blue china print, embroidered beautifully all over the dress. This might very well be my favourite dress in ages and I feel the pressure to make the most of it before the fabulous, fleeting British summer comes to an end and my pretty dresses are forced unceremoniously beneath heavy winter coats.
A massive thank you to Kayla for taking my outfit photos. x
