Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2014 Part Two

So, as promised, here we are back for our second day of Feista fun! In previous years, we have been all about finding a convenient hill to watch the early morning mass ascents from but a quick look at the fiesta program shed light on the prospect of bacon. Yep, we set our alarms for 5.20am all in the name of ‘breakfast and balloons’.  And glorious it was too.

The atmosphere at the morning ascent was just wonderful and we had such a lovely time drinking tea, eating our bacon sandwiches and watching the balloon teams preparing for launch. We have already decided that we will be attempting at least one early morning next year too.

Incredibly, despite the insanely early start, we still managed to coordinate our co-ords, which are both from Boden*.

Last Friday after indulging in a jolly gin-fueled tea party to celebrate all of those little life achievements that often get neglected due to busy schedules, we decided to throw on our new summer glad rags and head to our local park to continue the party! We are so thrilled that we did as we were greeted by a colourful mini-meadow of beautiful flowers.

Victoria: I wore a black embroidered trim playsuit from Rare* with over-sized sunglasses from Accessorize. My super bright orange nail polish is from Missguided and oh boy, I have found the comfiest shoes ever! They are handmade Menorcan sandals from Solillas*. I had planned on saving these for my upcoming holiday to Tunisia, but when I tried them on with this playsuit I was pleasantly surprised about how perfectly the turquoise complimented the embroidery, and the stylish deal was done. Marvelous!

Jo: I adore this lovely floral summer dress from Rare*, the beautiful shades of green and orange look so pretty together and it’s just so easy to wear! It doesn’t crease (praise be!) and the slightly heavy material means there is no risk of a breezey disaster. Perfect English Summer wear! I accessoried it simply with a pair of cream Faith brogues from the Debenhams sale and my go to Topshop sunglasses. Oh, and about one million flowers.
