The Canterbury Tales – animal print and floral pattern

Wednesday – as I’ve said, I had one more cool trip to feature this month – up to now, well understood. I’m talking about myself after all, and without travelling, I feel awkward. That’s simply me. So I’m always looking for the next “fix”! And it’ll come soon, for sure!

On February 11th I went to a place I always wanted to, since my first degree in English and American literature. Canterbury, known for The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer, among other things.

As I’ve mentioned, I like to travel light. On my birthday in January I got a great bag from Roberto Cavalli. Good sized for a short trip. I got so beautiful presents – one of them, an amazing floral scarf (love scarves!) that the super sweet M. (check her blog, she’s so elegant!) sent to me from Greece, among other amazing gifts! So, I really wanted to wear both… thinking, as usual, “oh, who cares of matching?” The items were meaningful to me.

Seems I’m not alone choosing such a mix… among some designers, check  Roberto Cavalli out, animal print + floral pattern!

And here’s my mix!

Bag, Roberto Cavalli, bought on my birthday in January. Amazing scarf, my friend M.'s present!

Of course, being myself, I had to go to a museum! This time, the Roman Museum:

And, of course, the fantastic Canterbury cathedral!

Amazing architecture!

I don't know what I liked better... outside or inside the cathedral - simply amazing. Yes, that's a new satchel, bought in Canterbury!

So, here's the deal. I take 99,9% of my pictures. That's why you'll see my face this way against the background. Do you think it's easy? Nooo! But I always want to register the moment and lovely background together with me!

So, here’s the deal. I take 99,9% of my pictures – apart from the ones in January. That’s why you see my face this way against the background. Do you think it’s easy? Nooo! But I always want to register the moment and the lovely background together with me!

And look at what I found there! I love sweets!

On my way back I even could stop by Hampton Court Palace, one of the two  surviving palaces (along with St. James’s Palace) out of the many owned by Henry VIII.  A win-win trip! Now… ready for the next!

Hope you are all having a great week, full of nice smiles!

  1. Aww thank you so much for mentioning me and for your compliments! I’m so touched! :) Thank you! You look gorgeous in these photos, and I really liked the combination of floral and leopard you’ve created, and it is much more beautiful than the one of Roberto Cavalli shown in the first picture. Nowadays mixing prints is a trend, so don’t worry at all. But even if it wasn’t you would look great! I love seeing photos from your trips.

  2. You look beautiful in these photos. I love your pretty hair, eyes, smile, floral print of your scarf and the way you paired it with the bag to achieve that look. The photographs you took are great! There’s just not a comparison to be made between stopping by the Hampton Court Palace or seeing the Canterbury Cathedral versus reading about iambic pentameter. You make a lovely appearance in your photos.

    • THank you so much for the sweet words! About “no comparison”, everybody has something to say, and your subject is as good as any other – what if we all liked just one thing in life? So, don’t worry, you have your niche for sure! Again, thanks for your lovely comment!

  3. I’m terrible, can’t believe I missed your birthday, I am so so sorry, I was busy studying for exams then and it completely slipped me. My sincerest apologies hun, I wish you a year filled with lots of love, luck, happiness and contentment, you deserve an abundance of all of this, you always radiate such light and I hope that’s what the world will bring you too. Canterbury sounds fantastic! Would love to see your Cavalli bag, how exciting!!

  4. Qué alegría verte de nuevo!!! y además te ves bien y linda como siempre. No había podido visitarte aún y no alcancé a ver otras entradas, pero ahora debería tener más tiempo y prometo volver.
    Lindas fotos de la viajera Denise!!
