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.

Styling cream and khaki and enjoying a warm day!
October 16, 2017
Khaki green is another regular colour that crops up in most autumn fashion style editorials in magazines at this time of year – some years more than most. I’ll admit, it doesn’t seem to be one of the major must-be-seen-in colours of fall 2017, but none-the-less I love it! It’s almost a neutral, and seems to go with every other colour in my wardrobe, except perhaps red and grey. And pale blue. Ok, so maybe not every colour, but quite a lot! It goes perfectly with dusky pink (of which I own a fair few items), black, and every shade of brown from dark chocolate to pale cream. On this occasion, I chose cream….

Styling the Spring/Summer 2018 trends: Pink
June 18, 2018
I have several items in my wardrobe of the dusky blush pink variety; but not so many of the brighter and pastel shades of pink that are on trend this season. I’ll have to be honest, is isn’t a shade that I think suits me very much, but this dress was so lovely, I wasn’t going to pass it by due to the colour! Some of these photos show how I styled it last summer, and some are from cooler days this spring, so they give you a couple of different ideas for how to style a pink dress….
