Pedalling in Pastels…

The sun came to Brighton! For a few glorious day we were sun soaked (if not a little wind beaten!) and I was determined to make the most of the (inevitable) fleeting blues skies.
 
After a tasty breakfast, Becca and I dusted off our bicycles (I haven’t ridden mine for about a month despite riding it throughout the entire winter!) and took them for a spin along the Brighton seafront for what turned out to be a five mile ride (some very sore bottoms in the flat that night!)
 
How could we resist not stopping for a few snaps along the way?!
 
 
Urgh…First of all let me get over how much I love my bicycle! Swoon! 
Perhaps in tribute to it’s gorgeous iris-blue colour, I’m wearing a surprisingly co-ordinated outfit!
 
The grey velvet t-shirt and blue playsuit (worn as shorts) I  borrowed from Becca (living with girls doubles your wardrobe!) 
I’ve been feeling a bit ‘stuck in a rut’ lately so it’s been lovely to borrow (and lend!) some pieces to bring a breath of fresh air to my own wardrobe.
 
 
This cute little mac was an eBay find, which I’m wearing with a vintage mustard scarf for a splash of colour! It matched beautifully with the pastel-loveliness of the huts!
 
 
And my tights are layered up of a Topshop cornflower blue pair, and these greyish-nude H&M patterned pair. I love the effect!
The shoes are old Topshop…As if I wasn’t going to be first in line for a pair of glittery mary-janes!
 
 
The bubble ring I’m wearing is a mini glitter snow-globe I bought when I was 16 at the V&A Museum in London. It never fails to cheer me up!
 
 
I’m also wearing (though you can’t really see it because the pesky wind was blowing my hair in all directions!) a homemade lace collar which a reader sent me last year. I have trawled trying to find the email to credit her but to no avail! So if you read this and recognise the collar do let me know! 
 
 
And because she looked so amazing, I had to feature my ever-obliging photographer flat mate again!
Just how Orla Kiely is Beccas outfit?! 
Here she is with her own co-ordinating bicycle!
 
 
Beccas dress was a recent purchase from Primark of all places! She’s wearing it with a vintage silk blouse and my old Topshop white brogues (it works both ways after all!)
 
 
One more before we hit the road…
 
 
And off we go!

 
Apologies for the lack of blogging – I actually have a back log of posts all ready to go, but have been too busy working to put any of them up!
So expect a huge surge of posts soon!
 
Love Yours Truly, x

    You both look fabulous – love that flash of mustard in your outfit (and of course the sparkly shoes!) and yes Becca’s look is very Orla Kiely 😀

    You girls look amazing! Tomorrow I’m going to the seaside so I can enjoy the sun properly but unfortunately I don’t have a bike yet but some fish and chips by the sun will be enough to make my day worth! xxx

    Oh my gosh could you get any more cute?! I don’t think so. I adore the photo location. I wish I had my own house so I could paint it those exact colors haha! I’m moving soon to a neighborhood that’s very bicycle friendly and I can’t tell you how excited that makes me 🙂 Nothing says summer like a cute dress and a bike ride!

  16. Definitely loving the 60s mod vibe of this look. I always liked your style but it’s nice to see it evolve. Geez I can’t believe it’s been two whole years since I did those portraits of you.

    super cute pictures, I love the colors in both of your outfits. Her combination of the polka dot dress with tights and brogues is lovely!

  25. I think the black polka dress is the best, so quirky and vintage! The patterned vintage is also an eye candy, I must say that I love-love-love it!

    Both of you look awesome! I would kill for those glittery mary janes… Are they out of stock for good? Damn.
    You always manage to pair the perfect flats with the perfect dress… Not to mention those tights – fabulous!
