I can't believe that it's been a full week since my last post! This isn't much of an outfit post either, I apologize. On Tuesday I was lucky enough to get centre court tickets to Wimbledon (thanks mum). I always watch it  but I've never been before and I had a great time. The whole place was surprisingly pretty with roses and wooden benches and even at one point, a jazz band. Our seats were pretty close and we got to watch a Nadal, Serena and Soderling and at the end of the day we wandered into an empty court which was then used for a doubles game with Serena and Venus. So plenty of tennis, as well as the obligatory strawberries (25p a strawberry) and Pimms (£6.70 a glass!)  I know food and drink is always expensive at these things but I was still surprised. But it had to be done. Also it was an incredibly hot day and I started off wearing trousers and a jacket, however halfway there I realised my error and ducked into Uniqlo and brought these shorts. I'm glad I did because although it was shady on court it was pretty hot on Henman hill.  On a vaguely fashion related note, Venus's tennis dress was rather sweet, the skirt looked like it was made of layers of tiny fringe. I had a lovely day, if you ever get to go I highly recommend it.


  1. Those are some expensive strawberries, I hope you enjoyed them. ;P I have always ALWAYS wanted to try Pimm's. Next summer, I promise myself.
