Hooting and howling

Yesterday felt like the epitome of a Bank Holiday weekend.  Blue skies, the smell of charcoal in the air, wine chilling in the fridge and Bodhi snoozing in the patch of warm sunlight in the hall.  Because you have that extra day everything seems to move at a slower pace on a Bank Holiday weekend - I feel less guilty about having a day doing nothing (most of Saturday) and my need to meticulously plan the whole weekend lessens because I have a whole extra 24 hours to play with.  For the first time in ages, we had no plans yesterday, and so we decided to go for a long dog walk along the beach and a lunch out.

I find it quite difficult to dress for this weather because, despite the attire of 90% of people at the beach, it is not t-shirts and shorts weather yet (much less shorts and tops off, sorry boys!) I am definitely a 'cold' person and at the slightest hint of a chilly breeze I'm pulling on cardigans and coats.  I decided recently that a trench/mac could be a good thing to add to my wardrobe for these in-betweeny weather days but until then I'm employing the services of my trusty denim jacket.  I added this camel fedora to my bulging hat collection a couple of weeks ago as I had a Topshop voucher.  I think it's going to be having lots of outings over the next few months.


hat: topshop £25 | denim jacket: new look [old] | stripey top: anthropologie [old]
jeans: topshop £40 | brogues: primark [old] | satchel: leather satchel co £82

We went to Barton-on-Sea, which is about five minutes from us.  It was lovely to have a walk by the sea, soak up the sunshine and watch Bodhi having a good run around and sniff!


As usual, after our walk our minds immediately turned to lunch and a cold drink.  We went to The Raft in Milford on Sea, but I'm going to save my photos of that for the next post as it really deserves a post all to itself! Hope you've all had amazing Bank Holiday weekends and managed to soak up some of the sunshine!

  7. Dressing in May is certainly challenging. I dress similar to your outfit - lots of layers. Lovely look though. Liking the denim.

  9. Really cute outfit, I love the hat with it too <3
    I'm wearing dresses with tights still- maybe this is why my legs are so pale they hurt! But have a jacket/cardie to hand, as it can be chilly in the shade and wind.
    The sun brightens my day a huge amount though!! More weather like that is very welcome x
