When the sun first poked it's head through the clouds a couple of weeks ago, my first thought was proposing a family visit to the Great British seaside- I mean come on, it seemed the only natural way to celebrate the arrival of Spring. After deliberating potential beachy destinations (pebbles vs sand, South coast vs Kent coast), where does the best fish and chips- and who homes the quaintest seaside shops- we settled on the beautiful, and equally as colourful Whitstable.

After enjoying a short car journey, filled with a chorus of 'are we there yet's' and suitably seaside Spotify playlists (think Cat Power and She & Him)- we arrived, and guess what- the sun was still shining! We piled out of the car with Poppy the dog leading the way, and eventually wound up around the harbor and the vibrant beach houses.
444 IMG_3652p IMG_3553p IMG_3796p IMG_3797p I guess it's days like these that really make me appreciate how lucky I am to have such a wonderful close family- without sounding too soppy, my grandparents are some of the coolest cats in town and it's always lovely to be able to spend a little quality time with them (whilst gobbling on some fish and chips of course!).

After strolling along the pebbled stones, admiring the windows of plenty beautiful boutiques (and an impeccably dressed couple in 1940s attire) and making a pit stop for some battered fish and vinegar soaked chips (not without a can of lemonade too) we headed back for the day- just in time for a soggy rain shower- this is England after all! To keep dry/stay cool I opted for this beautiful shirt and sunglasses combination- care of two of my favourite brands, Olive and the talented Miss Jaymie. I also sported this awesome Kanken bag- which is now my go to for pretty much anything (AND IT'S PINK). The lovely people at Olive have given you 15% off of any Kanken order you may make too, with the code 'OLIVIAKANKEN15'- not bad eh? Enjoy!

  42. LOVE this whole post. It's nearly my birthday and I've been planning to gift myself a kankan (pink too!) and wanted to use your brilliant discount. However the site gives us an error message "The coupon code you entered couldn't be applied to any items in your order." - is that just me? Did it have a time limit? x

  43. LOVE everything about this, it's dreamy. So, it's nearly my birthday and I had already decided to gift myself a kanken (pink too!) this week so your code is perfect timing. However when I tried to order I got this error "The coupon code you entered couldn't be applied to any items in your order." just to let you know. Was there a time limit on it? x

    1. Hi lovely! This problem is being sorted out now- hang in there! Sorry about that! x

      Delete
    2. Hey! So sorry about the bother- I had a response from Olive saying:

      'Perhaps if you're a kanken and an item of clothing it's not accepting because of the other item. If that's the case suggest doing two separate orders and we'll refund the postage costs'

      So sorry again! xx

  47. Oh I love these photos so much Olivia :) I live right along the seafront so think I kind of take it for granted sometimes and forget to do all of the traditional sea front things, doughnuts are always my favourites :P Love your top and your sunglasses are so cool :D

  54. Wow this makes me want to go to the seaside so much. Who needs to go abroad when we have this a mere car ride away?

    Just tried to buy myself a beautiful Kanken bag, but the code still isn't working. Has it expired?
