On the river

Just before Truck Festival I had the eager to go punting, quite out of the blue, therefore impromptu I decided to arrange a quick day out. I ended up going with 4 other friends punting at the Magdalen boathouse and it was super fun!

We had an assortment of foods from berries to crips to beverages, it was great fun! Although we did nearly fall over when we lost our punting rod ( forgive me as I have no idea what the technical name is!). 
My friend Coco kindly took these photos for me and here's one featuring Emma who I somehow talk about 24/7. I suppose we do hang out like every other day.
This outfit was super great for punting as it was airy and comfortable therefore for the hot weather. Let's be real, punting can actually be a workout for someone as unfit as I so we need to be ready to break a sweat.
The cardigan added extra layering for the light windy chill that day, so it was the ideal piece for a put together look but also practical. I swear I say that for every outfit, but seriously comfort is a big deal for me ( as well as fashion, whatever that is.)
Also sorry for the repetitive shots, Coco obviously got a little carried away with the camera aha, or I was a tad obsessed with VSCO cam when editing so edited all the shots aha. Either way I sincerely apologise if you hate my face, or something...
top, Zara
shorts, Primark
cardigan, Primark
Later that day we then went for a quick picnic at University Parks before I went to make a few quids babysitting some family friends. It was an overall enjoyable day, this is like my version of sky diving. Nah, I'd love to go sky diving actually. Anyway it is 23:04 here in Freiburg, Germany as I am writing this so I need coffee badly. Also I'm watching Big Bang Theory in German so I'm getting a bit confused, aha I think it's bed time for Jess ( especially as I need to get up at 6:30am tomorrow). That's another story.
I hope you liked this quick update and outfit! Also I'm posting every three days rather then two at the moment just as I am on holiday so it's slightly harder! Hope you don't mind too much ;)

Ciao, Jess xx

  41. Ahh! We just came across your blog Jess and love it! As soon as we read in your bio that you're based in Oxford we hit follow - Oxford is one of our most favourite places in England.

    :)

    This is a beautiful post and the photos are lovely! Good editing! (VSCOCam is our go-to as well). We recently went punting in Cambridge but opted to have a punter/tour guide - I'm not sure we'd have gotten out alive if we'd punted ourselves down the river! hahah!

    Nice to meet you!
