In a Prada dress at Bibury, a charming Cotswold village in England
Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from "The Capital of the Cotswolds", Cirencester. Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as "the most beautiful village in England". And the cottages of Arlington Row are often referred to as the most photographed and beautiful cottages in the country.
I and my cousin sister drove from London to Bibury, and the drive took us about two hours. It was a little difficult to find parking close to Arlington Row, but we finally managed a good spot right across the stone bridge on the river Coln. It was the prettiest little fairy-tale town I had ever seen - the vibration was calm and relaxed and people walked around with their cameras, trying their best to capture the beauty of this dreamy little Cotswold village. I was wearing my new Prada dress with my new Prada ballet flats and a Michael Kors bag on the shoulder. I thought it was the perfect evening to wear my Prada dress!
The picturesque Arlington Row cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of weavers' cottages in the 17th century. The whole village felt like a surreal dream - stone cottages, stone bridges, fields with blooming flowers - I felt like an Alice in Wonderland!
We walked along the fields taking in the fresh air and absorbing the beauty of this tranquil little village as the sun set gently over us. I was really enjoying my Prada dress and the Prada ballet flats that were so comfortable to walk in.
The river Coln in Bibury with its pretty stony bridges, was delightfully enchanting! We walked down the steps to play with the swans!
The Bibury Post Office was one of the cutest little post offices I had ever seen!
Everything in Bibury was charming and I fell in love with these colorful flower arrangements decorating an old stony wall!
We ended our day by a visit to the Saint Mary's church in Bibury and stopped at La Cucina, an Italian restaurant in Oxford for dinner, on our way back to London.
P.S. Thank you Ruchi for driving me there and for the beautiful make-up and hair. :)
