Trip to The Seaside (OOTD)

Friday, 12 June 2015

This is my first, of many I hope, outfit of the day blog posts. My boyfriend, Matt and I recently took a trip to Southport. This is what I wore.

I love summer. I love being able to dress exactly how I want without having to shove on five extra layers for fear of freezing to death. Don't get me wrong, I do love wearing cute hats and comfy jumpers but it feels like it's been a long time coming for the weather to have been warm enough to be able to wear sandals and sleeveless tops without worrying about have a reaction to the cold.

This outfit made me feel at once, feminine and comfortable. I decided to go with a kind of seaside feel to my outfit, sticking to the colours blue and white. I also wore my anchor earrings from CatsPlugs (pictured below), which I think are really beautiful.

I got both the top and the trousers that I'm wearing at the same time. A confession here, the only reason I ended up buying these clothes is because I was taking an item back. I thought I could be sensible and only get one item. Needless to say, I could not. The top is lacy with a tie at the bottom making it slightly cropped in style. The trousers are 3/4 length and are a very stretchy comfortable material.

The shoes I bought a little before the rest of the outfit. I've loved this platform style of shoe for a while now, but I'd found most pairs that I've wanted were quite expensive. At £15.99, I thought these were very affordable. I love the contrast between the black and the white. I love the platform meaning I can have the beauty of a heel without the pain of them. They're very comfortable and a lot more lightweight than I expected them to be.

The sunglasses I also bought a while ago; they were a little out of my comfort zone but I love them. They make me feel festival-ready (even though I'm not going to a festival this year - sob!) They might be my favourite pair of sunglasses out of the ones that I own
