Getting Lost

Living a hectic urban life can get a little too much from time to time. And the worst part is, as we adapt to the lifestyle, we don’t even notice it anymore. But the good thing about living in London, is that we have all the privilege of the amazing English countrysides that surround this metropolitan, where you can retrieve to whenever you desire.

Getting yourself lost in the countryside is easy, and wonderful. Especially if you’ve found a safe yet surreal place to rest your head like the Wriggly Tin.

If you’re lucky and the day is dry, a pair of converse and a voluminous weekender will be all that you need. Otherwise, a pair of wellies will do too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The union jack cardigan was borrowed from the gent, but a slouchy chunky knit would always be good in a countryside context.

 

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1463950108337?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

And the rest of the outfit is:

Dress:

// Navy Sleeveless Midi Dress (similar) from Uniqlo //
// Linen Cargo Dress from Jaeger //
// Max Studio Sleeveless Linen Shift Dress from John Lewis //
// Zandra Linen Pinafore Dress in Blue from Harris Wilson on Anthropologie //
 
Sneakers:
// Converse White Chuck Taylor Chelsee Trainers from ASOS //
// Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Madison Ox Trainers (All White) from ASOS //

And this amazing thrill came over me as we opened the door to our Wriggly Tin cabin. If you’re into your homeware and interior design inspos, then this place, although tiny, is going to give you the ultimate “kid in a candy store” moment. Each cabin is individually(and tastefully) designed, combines practicality and that cool country aesthetic perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

Bringing a dog or two is highly recommended. Borrow one from a friend if you are not a dog owner, so he/she can keep you company and feel same during the nights.

 

Having had a good snoop around in our home for the next three nights, we couldn’t wait to start our first campfire for the trip.

 

Our breakfast baskets were delivered. The bread was still warm being made fresh that afternoon, I mean, who could resist something like that?

 

So we cut some fresh bread for dinner, to go with meat. Al fresco style, of course.

 

 

 

 

 

Everything tasted a little better when cooked over a campfire. And the dessert was of course, roasted marshmallows.
