Brights, Boats & Britishness

Belle & Bunty London with Bicester Village Henley Festival Blog Shoot SS17

Us Brits love a good tradition and us {Belle & Bunty} love a good bright so you can see why we are beaming from ear to ear. This week we attending the prestigious Henley Festival with our friends Bicester Village for a very British affair.

P.S we have a guest appearance in this post, you *may* recognise him

Henley Festival is not like your usual festival.

Oh no no no… this is *our* sort of festival.

Great loos {c’mon it’s important, right?!}, civilised seating and a dress code that has our names all over it.

*insert beaming face emojis*

Set on the Berkshire banks of the River Thames, the festival follows on from Henley Regatta and is a riot of art, music and food {let’s not mention the champagne that gave us fuzzy heads all.day.long the next day, shall we} The Black Tie dress code ensures everyone is resplendently dapper and gave us a good excuse to float around in these diaphanous numbers, both of which we picked up at a snip of the original retail price at Bicester Village a few weeks previously. If you read this post you will know that Bicester Village has fast become our favourite place to shop luxury brands at huge discounts. If you haven’t been you must. 

Now when we say it was a thoroughly British affair we may have lied a little as we ate Italian pizza, drank French champagne {hold on, we weren’t talking about the excess of champers now were we} and wore French and American brands BUT the headline music act were the Pet Shop Boys and you can’t get more British than that.
