I Want Candy! – Yours Truly

Maybe it’s because my hair has toned down, but I’ve been feeling a new rush of creativity when getting dressed lately…Compensating for the lack of ginger perhaps! This weekend I was visiting Joshua in Brighton, where we went for a little stroll on the (freezing..don’t be fooled!) beach front! In an outfit of sickly-sweet girly tones, I wore a Topshop dress that was a bargain from eBay (and perhaps was inadvertently a homage to this recent photo shoot?) I love the candy cane stripes!

I also managed to convince my hair to form a pretty good beehive! I was particular chuffed with this one, as I always struggle to keep it looking even and neat enough. The fascinator is from Johnny Loves Rosie (I was asked during the day if I was off to a wedding!) and my crochet handbag is from Absolute Vintage.

The shoes are ridiculously comfortable…And particularly good for dancing!

Definite outfit inspiration! Perhaps going brunette will coax me into pretty pinks and pastels? (until the red returns anyway!)
A funny little scenario involving a fake flamingo and a nonchalant seagull hitching a ride…

We mooched around Brighton, visiting markets and some favourite shops…Does anybody else ever feel the huge desire to live inside one of the Cath Kidston stores?! I mean seriously how beautiful is this little display they’ve set up…

I loved this haberdashery stalls mismatched button boxes!

It’s the perfect harmony between order and chaos!

Then when the cold got too much to stand, we slipped into The Mesmerist, where Joshua works for a hot lunch and a cheeky pint!

How cool is the wallpaper in there? (And how stupid did I feel taking a photo of it! Ha!)

Thanks for another lovely weekend Brighton!

I’ll be posting again later this week, with something a little different to what I normally do….How intriguing eh?
