Weekly Wardrobe – Sandals in the Sand

This week’s photos come to you from Holywell Bay in Cornwall. Chris and I took a few days to travel around our favourite county in the campervan for a bit of a photography holiday. We arrived at 6:30pm with a light drizzle, but a gorgeous warm evening light, so we drove straight to the National Trust beach for the Weekly Wardrobe. This week’s theme from Not Dressed As Lamb is sandals….

This is one of my favourite dresses and is from Bedlam Boutique in Glastonbury. I just feel very pretty wearing it! The woollen shawl is Joe Browns and I can’t for the life of me remember where I got the delicate scarf. The sandals are Clarks and are very comfy and squishy underfoot and I love the leaf design.

I was amazed at the difference in temperature in Cornwall, from the hot sunny days to the cooler evenings and freezing nights! It’s almost impossible to wear one outfit the whole day. So I started off with this summer maxi dress in tones to match the sand (totally intentional – honestly); then kept in my bag the lightweight shawl that just gives that little bit extra warmth when the sun almost meets the sea. Then later on, I really did need to wrap up in the snuggly wool shawl – the wind picked up while walking along the cliffs and it was rather chilly indeed! It meant I was able to keep the dress on all day long rather than change to some boring practical outfit for the sake of the temperature.

I hope this post will give you ideas on how you can style a maxi dress and layer it up for cooler evenings or for autumn.

Weekly Wardrobe – floppy hat & maxi skirt
January 30, 2017
Hello everyone! There’s one good thing about all this crappy weather: it’s great for portrait photography! The misty dreary drizzle diffuses the light beautifully and makes me look amazing (even if I do say so myself) haha! Seriously though, if you’d like a nice outdoor photo of yourself, now’s the time to do it. I love it when you remember something in your wardrobe that you’ve forgotten about for a while. I can’t believe I haven’t worn this floppy hat all winter, but I thought it would go perfectly with the rest of the outfit and also add some much needed colour…..
Late January Sales shopping – Next, New Look, Joe Browns, Joules & Weird Fish
February 6, 2017
I don’t like crowds; particularly in the shops when the January sales start. However, I absolutely LOVE a bargain! So, if I have the funds, I would sometimes go shopping the first week the kids had gone back to school, so at least I wouldn’t be fighting with them along the sales rails! Lately though, I haven’t specifically gone out of my way to go shopping in the sales, but I passed by New Look the other day and bought a couple of things. Then I was seduced by the Joe Browns catalogue that appeared on my doorstep, so I bought a couple of things from there online. Then, I was at Clark’s Village in Street to look for boots for Chris, when I ended up buying a few things there. Ooops!….
Weekly Wardrobe – embracing autumn colours
October 3, 2016
I do feel summer colours particularly suit me and I’m reluctant to let them go. In the spirit of #IwillwearwhatIlike, I will probably continue to wear pale blue and blush pink regardless of the season, but now we’re into October, I thought I would stop denying summer is over and pick something a little more autumnal. This is just a casual outfit I wore at the weekend for no particular occasion. We had crappy weather on Saturday, but wasn’t Sunday beautiful? These autumn style photos were taken in a nearby village just as it was getting cooler….
