Frock Fridays - Oxford

I'm heading out of town this weekend to visit my friend Fiona, who is a PhD student at Oxford.  I don't know what the days will hold; when I asked her on gchat about plans, she said:

well, depending on the weather we can have some yummy food, maybe a picnic in the park, wander around some of the colleges, possibly go punting if i can convince someone to punt us, go to a cromwellian eta pub on the river, dinner, cocktails, wolfson college bar, and general awesomeness.

In other words, she's being elusive about plans - but the weather is supposed to be warm and at least not rainy, so I predict we'll do lots of simply meandering around town.  We did our master's degrees together and both loved the art/architecture aspect of Medieval Studies, so I'm also guessing we'll stroll past more than a few historic buildings.  Knowing Fiona, the evening will be a bit raucous - I'll need a frock for every possible adventure that might come my way on Saturday!

Good thing I've got a go-to weekend dress.  I've been living in this Anthro classic for weeks and I think it's going to be dragged out again for this trip.  What say you?

Cardigan, bangles, and pearls?  Flats for day, heels for night?  Yes and yes.  Sorted!


  1. Have you been to the new (-ish now, I guess!) Anthro on Regent Street? I remember being so excited when the temporary storefront/advertisement went up two years ago! Have a great time this weekend, and give Fiona a hug from me!

  2. Haha, how English of you to add a "sorted" at the end. :) Love the dress.. err frock sorry!

  3. Ooh! Weekends with no particular plans often turn out to be the best ones ever! One perfect dress and lots of cool Oxford no less! I look forward to reading the deets when you're back in town. xx

  4. Christine - I love there. There's one on the King's Road now as well!

    Sarah - haha I didn't even notice, to be honest! How conceited of me :)

    Bobbi - YES.
