I first heard of the Chertsey Book Barn around six or so weeks ago. I was promised books stacked as high as the ceiling so you literally have to weave between them, like a labyrinth – and the tales turned out to be pretty darn accurate! The whole thought of the book barn has been has been stuck in my mind ever since.. Finally, when we were on a weekend drive – to collect car parts (of all things!) the ol’ CBB and I met face to face. And it was certainly worth the wait!
Myself and Barnaby pulled up in front of the enormous barn which genuinely is in the absolute middle of nowhere. After wandering in, we didn’t emerge for around an hour or so. And some of us (hint: me!) even went in for a second look! You’d probably assume I’d be carrying armfuls of books, but actually my only purchase was a book that I admittedly bought just for the cover. Turns out it was a religious text of sorts (d’oh!) so I doubt I’ll be reading it any time soon.
The outfit I wore was fairly simple – including an anchor print dress you would definitely have seen on the blog before! The wellingtons are recent wardrobe additions (from Butterfly Twists) and I can’t get over just how comfortable they are! Plus, they looked super cute paired with my Kate Spade eyes umbrella!
