Boscanova and a fedora

On Saturday my friend Becki, who I haven't seen for a while, came to stay for the weekend.  The sun kindly put his hat on for the occasion so I decided to don mine too, as well as a Spring-inspired outfit (and no coat, walking on the wild side or what?)

jumper: matalan £14 | denim shirt: new look [old]
jeans: topshop [old] | wedges: h&m [old]
fedora: missguided [old] | collar chain: ever ours £2
I am still not 100% sure of the hat (what do you think?) so I switched it for the only UV-protecting glasses I could find in the house.  After being deep in the realms of winter for so long my sunglasses collection seems to have scarpered.


Becki hasn't explored this neck of the woods much so I decided we would try out a little café in Boscombe I've been meaning to try for ages, Café Boscanova.  Boscanova is an independent restaurant that specialises in coffees and breakfasts (with a section of the menu dedicated to pancakes, meaning I was sold before I'd even ordered any food).  I ordered a chai latte and Becki ordered a honey and lemon tea.

Chai latte

We were both going to ordered nachos but the chap who served us suggested we try a different platter and share both, which turned out to be an excellent recommendation.  As well as the nachos in the end we also plumped for Mediterranean Mezze platter which came with olives, flatbreads, houmous, salad and halloumi.


The interior was really cool, with exposed brickwork, lampshades made of paper cups and coffee sacks hung around the café.  The guy who served us was really friendly and kept chatting and topping up our glasses with water which was a nice touch.  I hugely recommend a visit if you're in the area.


After a mild panic when I realised the parking had run out before we'd finished eating we nipped over to Pokesdown for a nose around the vintage shops.  I was hoping to find some retro goodies for the lounge but I didn't find anything that took my fancy.  We then nipped to Sainsbury's to stock up on snacks and spent the evening watching Tangled in our pajamas and drinking rosé wine.  A perfect day.
