Seaside Style {English Coast}

If you live in England, you can easily do this on a day out to the beach: Dip your toes into the near-icy water but don't go too far in; it's cold. Perhaps it is a nice day like it was the last time that I visited Hastings but more likely than not it's one of the following:

  • Rainy
  • Cold 
  • Rainy
Now slip your shoes back on as you walk over the sharp pebbles (we'll assume that it's like most English beaches and has pebbles instead of sand.) If it's a nice day then feel free to have a quick sunbathe at this point but make sure you bring a towel because lying on hard pebbles is not a very pleasant experience most of the time. When you get up, sling your red Mulberry bag over your shoulder and head towards the ice cream/candy floss/fairground rides/2p machines: whatever takes your fancy. I usually go to all four at some point when I visit the seaside. A nice picnic on the beach will do perfectly for lunch. If it's raining? Keep calm and carry on. A wicker basket and a tartan mat at the beach go together like strawberries and cream at Wimbledon. A couple of sandwiches, fondant fancies and some cloudy lemonade make a quaint crew. But no, I haven't forgotten about the classic fish and chips; a must have for a day at the English sea side like purple is a must have for autumn. As the evening cools, throw on a cardigan and scurry across to a restaurant at the sea front.

  1. A day out on the beach sounds beautiful right about now. I love the red dress you featured in your Polyvore set.


If you comment I'll always love you and we can hang out and bake vegan cupcakes and drink tea and listen to sixties records. Go on, you know you want to...
