Weekly wardrobe – gothic circus look for a beach walk!

Rain chose a walk on the beach as her family activity for her birthday, so yesterday afternoon we drove over to Brean and parked up past all the tacky arcades to as near to the cliff as you can get. It’s a handy carpark with a National Trust shop, cafe, and (most importantly) loos. Sunny and hot one minute and cloudy with a chilly wind the next, it was difficult to know what to wear. I opted for layers with a steampunk circusy vibe; and why not? ….


The glass pendant necklace came from a stall at Glastonbury Festival several years ago and is a well-worn favourite of mine.



I knew I was going to wear my walking trainers, and not wanting to wear trousers that would end up wet and sandy up to the knee, I thought a skirt and leggings would be the best option. I also think shorter skirts look better with chunky shoes, and that decided it for me really as I don’t own many short skirts. I bought this purple frilly one for £10 from a stall at Glastonbury Frost Fayre last year. I met the lady who made it, but she hadn’t put a label in the skirt, so I’m afraid I can’t tell you the name of her business, if indeed she has one.



The black hoody was a Christmas present from Chris, and is from naughty website, Suicide Girls. It isn’t an item they stock any more, so I’m glad I got it while I had the chance. It’s my best-fitting hooded top – actually shaped for a women, and I love the slightly puffed shoulders for a vintage look.



I really like the alternative designs on the sleeves. They’re just subtle enough not to be too grrrr and in your face punk! Of course, the thumb hole detail finishes off the emo style perfectly.


The Peter Storm walking shoes were another Christmas present – this time from my Mum last year. They’re comfortable and did the job yesterday, but when walking through wet dewy grass, they aren’t as waterproof as the waterproof label on them might have you believe!

My strange relationship with fashion
September 23, 2016
You may have noticed that my blog has been gradually overhauled and updated in the last few months (and still is – new logo coming soon!), and yet I haven’t gone with the same fashionable layout as most top bloggers at the moment – you know the kind – the picture that doesn’t scroll with your mouse, and the blocks of pictures. There is no doubt that this style looks beautiful, but I personally find it confusing. I like a blog that has clear categories that are easy to find, as well as a way of reading everything in order with the most recent post first. I hope I’m doing the right thing (I have already been complimented on the clear layout), but I’ve decided to keep my blog unfashionable, but in a way that suits me. My fashion sense with clothes works in a similar way……
Spring lookbook – Styling a pink ruffled jumper; a black skater dress, and Pretty punk inspiration
May 9, 2017
My Weekly Wardrobe is no more! Sadly I don’t have the time to keep up with as many posts as I used to be doing, so I’ve decided to make monthly look-books instead with all my recent outfits together. It means each post is going to be a bit longer – I hope you don’t mind! So this one goes right back to Mothering Sunday when I wore the above outfit for our walk around the Glastonbury Festival site. We also have a glittery ruffled pink jumper teamed with a a 1950’s style circle skirt and lastly a black skater dress with a cool neckline….
