on friday, caryn & I decided to head to oxford! with our last minute bus tickets in hand, we had two goals : see the harry potter dinning hall & buy cool shirts. our day turned into leisurely shopping around oxford, stopping in the market for lunch and simply staring at the architecture of the city. I felt transported back in time winding through the fantastic buildings and down random alley ways - our complete lack of knowledge about where to go or what to do was actually quite relaxing. upon arriving at the visitor's entrance to the church with the harry potter dinning hall and realizing there was an entrance fee, we opted to just shop around more for the perfect oxford rugby shirts, success!
turning onto old bond street with the ritz at my back
a few of my finds while wandering through the insanely costly collections
basically every other building in oxford looks this grand
I'm obsessed with the swirly columns on this church & thought the blossoms added a nice touch
we found this ribbon & yarn shop down a little side road : adorable!
not quite notting hill, but this pink shop stood out against the rain
the great roads you find while you're happily lost
just inside here you'd find the hogwarts dinning hall inspiration
these eerie vines outside hogwarts gave the church wall such interesting texture
