BESIDE THE SEA

Where have the past four days gone!? To make the most of the last day of the Bank Holiday weekend, Dan and I decided to take a trip to the beach as the sun had made an appearance. St Annes is just a twenty minute drive from where I live, so is the perfect place to visit when the weather is nice and you’re stuck for something to do. Although the sun was out, the weather was still a little cold and windy, so I made sure I kept warm in my new jumper-come-shirt from Brave Soul. The sleeves and the back panel are made from thick flannel shirt fabric, and the front it a cosy sweatshirt fabric which I love. I teamed the jumper with my staple Topshop skinny jeans and Alvin boots for a laid back but comfy look.

We spent our time in St Annes having a browse round the shops, playing on the arcade games and strolling along the sand. I managed to waste a load of change in the 10p machines in the arcade at the pier as I just don’t have the skills needed, obviously, but despite that we had a lovely afternoon and even picked up a treat for ourselves from the little department store there, JR Taylor. We picked up a gorgeous V&A bedding set that I can’t wait to put on the bed and I’m sure you will see some snaps of that!

What did you get up to this Bank Holiday? Hope you all had a lovely weekend however you spent it!

    Oh I love the seaside, no matter what the weather is like. I am hopeless at the 2p machines (I'm not good enough to try and go for the 10p ones!) and never win, but they are so addictive!
