STROLLING AROUND ALBERT DOCKS

Liverpool fashion blogger | chunky knit and polkadot maxi skirt

Evening all! Today's shots come from last weekend when I went up to Liverpool with the other half for a few days of shopping, sight-seeing, and of course, plenty of eating. Weekend breaks to unknown cities really do recharge my batteries. There is something about exploring new places that makes me feel like, well, me again, regardless of the tough week I've had. And Liverpool has plenty to keep me occupied!

We strolled around the Albert Docks on the Saturday, and luckily for us the sun came out. It's a really beautiful corner of the city, and I found myself really swooning over the apartments up there (£200k anyone? No?) After a wander around the Maritime Museum, Tate, and of course the Museum of Liverpool, we found a little cafe to rest our feet and indulge in afternoon tea. Perfect.

This skirt was just one of the vintage pieces I picked up in Liverpool over the weekend. We stayed just off Bond Street, using Air bnb which I would definitely recommend to those looking for cheaper alternatives to a travel lodge, with more personality too! Going back to this skirt - I always see it as a sign if I find a one-off vintage piece fits me as if it was made for my own fair hips. It means there's no excuse not to buy it!

I'm already thinking about my next city break. I haven't seen much of Manchester or Newcastle really, so maybe they're options. Or perhaps Ireland! I've been hankering after Belfast or Dublin for ages, so perhaps in the new year, we'll see. Do you like city breaks?

And yes I do realise I'm wearing different coloured socks in this #bloggerfail
