It feels weird writing this rather cold and snowy post whilst summer is finally making an appearance here in Kent, but I can’t help but fall in love with the magical scene of The Royal Crescent in the snow just a little more each time I look at these photos.
Taking a stroll through the streets of Bath in the snow and reveling in its beauty as the dusting of white complimented the glowing stone buildings – To get to the Royal Crescent we basically walked through Narnia. The surrounding Royal Victoria Park in the snow was beautiful as most of it was untouched. It made the Royal Crescent look even more regal as it sweeps across the length of the park.
The Royal Crescent is a line of 30 terrace houses set out in a sweeping crescent shape, hence the name. Built between 1767 and 1775 this masterpiece was designed by architect John Wood, the younger and remains to be one of the UK’s greatest pieces of Georgian architecture.
One of Bath’s most desirable address, the rich and even royal fell head over heels in love with uninterrupted views of the River Avon and picture perfect location.
Styling outfits for the snow can be a tricky ordeal. Especially when you’ve had to pack in advance for a weekend away. I had to work with what I brought up to Bath, luckily I knew it would be freezing so, I had the basic necessities for snowy weather; bobble hat and gloves.
A turtleneck was the next obvious choice, but as I was driving home that day I didn’t want to be stuck in jeans so, I opted to wear a floaty midi skirt layered underneath my thick woolly jumper. Finished off with thick tights and an oversized teddy bear coat. I think this look really worked in the end- I really recommend layering skirts you would wear during the summer under thick jumpers. You get the use out of them all year round and it’s a nice change from being stuck in jumpers and jeans all winter.
Maybe a tip to save for next winter – Fingers crossed England will finally get its summer!
