A couple of weekends ago Joe and I went on one of our beach walks. It had been a while, I think the last one was the Sunday before he started his course.
It was the first ‘Spring’ walk, the sun was shining it wasn’t too chilly, my blanket/shawl kept me warm, and there was a light wind blowing. As usual we got ourselves a Small Batch on our way down and had a lovely walk along Hove seafront.
I’m trying to embrace colour at the moment and this lovely shawl from Blue Vanilla has some beautiful colours in it while still being dark enough for me to feel comfortable in. It’s made out of a soft fleece material so is perfect for adding a bit of warmth, especially when the weather is as changeable as it is at the moment.
To add more colour I wore it with a striped top from Simply Be – the top came in a two pack with a plain white version too. I really love stripes at the moment and while a lot of breton tops aren’t that flattering for my body shape. These tops have 3/4 length sleeves and a handkerchief bottom. These were teamed with my new favorite jeans, the Joni by Topshop. I have to say they surprised me with the fit, I haven’t had a pair of their jeans in years but these are so comfortable and a perfect length.
I would have loved to put on some chunky heels, but for a long walk, comfort is key so I went for my trusty Converse (I actually have 2 pairs of these!). The bag is a vintage Dior bag that my grandma gave me.
Do you have any vintage hand me downs? Sometimes I think they are the best pieces.
