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 a simple blue dress – summer fashion.
August 4, 2017
As you can tell, these photos were taken on a warm day in spring, back when the bluebells were out in full force; but this is still an outfit I’m wearing four months later, so I thought I’d do some catching up as I haven’t written so many fashion blog posts recently. This was actually an impromptu photo-shoot as we were out hunting for bright yellow rape-seed oil flower fields. We always see them next to the road when we’re not looking for them, but when we were it took us hours! We saw the dappled light shining through the trees and thought we’d hop out the car and take some photos there just in case we never found what we were looking for….

How to rock the granny chic trend! Styling a hand-knitted cardigan
February 25, 2018
I don’t know whether you’ve noticed it, but I’ve spotted lots of people lately wearing jumpers and cardigans that look like their granny knitted it. They probably didn’t, because these people are probably young enough that their grannies are still in full time work and far too busy to be sitting by the fire and knitting. However, I was lucky enough to have a Nan who knitted and was proud to wear my royal blue school cardigans with massive sleeves that no-one else had. (At least I was until I was ten.) Maybe that’s what sparked my love of wearing things just a little bit different to everyone else. (Damn – I wish I’d thought of that argument when I was a teenager “Well if you didn’t want me to wear 1960’s mini nightdresses with Doc Martins, maybe you should’ve just bought me a Woodlands school cardigan with the logo on it like everyone else had!” sort of thing)….
