I FELL IN LOVE AT THE SEASIDE


Sunglasses // Topshop (I think)
Top* // Trippy Tuesdays
Skirt // American Apparel
Inflatable backpack // eBay
Jelly Shoes // Juju

If you didn't already know, my friend Jess and I took a little road trip down to Bournemouth on saturday as her dad has a lovely apartment there.  We went out in the evening and sunbathed (very hungover) on the beach the next day.  These are the first outside outfit photos I've actually liked so I might start venturing outside more often!  This is just a really relaxed beach outfit so there aren't a lot of details (ie. jewellery) plus I'm totally hungover in the photos which is why I'm just kind of..standing there.  I wanted to go for a 90's look while keeping it simple and suitable for the beach, which is why I picked the crop top and skirt but added some jelly sandals and my inflatable backpack which I think is so cool!

  1. I love this outfit! Very 90s! I think I used to have one of those back packs. I probably filled it with a shit tonne of spicegirls memorabilia and smelly gel pens. Those were the days! xxx

  2. Gorgeous looks and such a stunning and apt background!
    If you don't mind me asking, what camera do you use? I absolutely love all your shots, particularly the low depth of field! xx

    1. Thank you! I use a Nikon D3200 with a 30mm lens, ideally I'd love a 50mm but for now this will do, I had the aperture at f2.8 if that helps (:

  9. I love this outfit! I'm not usually a fan of jelly shoes but yours are really nice, I think it's because they remind of when I was a child and I would have to wear them on holiday and they always got so hot and burned my feet, aw memories haha x

  32. I remember having that exact backpack when I was about 5 or 6 years old (and the jelly shoes, too)! Maybe I'm giving my age away too much there... So cute!
