What we wore: A trip to the Albert Docks


Saturday's sky was grey here in Liverpool but we still had a really fun day! We had lots of much needed sleep followed by brunch (eggs in basket, smoked bacon and tomatoes and lots of coffee) then a stroll down to the Albert docks. It's quite touristy on a saturday but this didn't bother us too much. We kind of captured the stroll in these photographs, with some liverpool street art, cafe 36, the one centre (with cherry blossom now in bloom!), and finally the Albert dock itself. 

We had a look around the tate gallery... with a fair amount of time spent reading through all the creative books in the gallery shop. I purchased this fantastic children's book for myself Around the world with mouk, this book has really inspired me! We then bought sweets in the quay confectionery shop and headed back into town. The day ended with yummy burgers at Gourmet burger and beers at Leaf cafe. I also wore my hair in milkmaid braids for the first time ever! Check Tick Tock vintage for a great tutorial.

Sunday was spent working on our new website followed by an evening watching Cleopatra in tribute of the wonderful Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor. How did you spend your weekend?
