Half term always calls for some kind of escape – at home or abroad. For this break, @darktechsupport and I decided to spend two days in Brighton. I have been there previously but I hadn’t properly explored the area.
We headed down on Sunday and strolled straight to the seafront! It had been forecast to rain but it was sunny and warm. I love to dress up for trips and as we were by the sea, I thought I’d go for a nautical look. Most of my nautical clothing is the traditional mix of red, white and blue but I wanted to try something different.
It was time to bust out my octopus skirt from Unique Vintage. I loved the colour and print of this skirt as soon as I saw it. The fabric is great quality and it has got POCKETS too! Definitely a great addition to my wardrobe.
To go with the colour scheme of the skirt, I added a purple slash-neck top from Vivien of Holloway. This would look equally good with any of the other colours in the design – I’m going to try mint next.
For a bold design, I felt the need for subtle accessories. Neutral sandals and my vintage starfish brooch seemed appropriate.
While I was over at Viva, I managed to win a turban from Sarah’s Doo Wop Dos. Sparkly lilac velvet was the perfect addition to this outfit – I felt pretty fabulous.
Finally, I added a slick of purple liquid lipstick. When it’s hot, I hate wearing make-up so I generally pat my face with translucent powder and wear lippie.
I loved everything about this outfit and I can’t want to style it again!
Thanks as always to @darktechsupport for his great photography skills.
