If there's one thing the start of Autumn brings (as well as the obligatory restoration of the 180 denier tights)- it's the promise of grey days and squally showers (because this girl, definitely watches too many weather reports). So, with that in mind- Joe and I decided to pay a visit to the seaside, of course! With last weekend being one of the last 'free ones' until October (read: the height of Autumn), we decided to make the most of 'the last of summer' by heading down to somewhere we'd been dying to properly visit for ages- Margate!

Much like our visit to Coney Island earlier this year, typically Joe and I chose possibly the most inappropriate day to pay a visit to seaside town, Margate. Not ones to be put off by rail replacement bus services (even if the whole journey did take 3 hours each way), we packed our brollies, food recommendations, railcards and positively British 'BRING-ON-THE-WEATHER' attitudes, for a day of meandering around the Kent coast. Although I do have a miniature guide coming up soon (trust me, there's enough in this place to do even when it's raining), we made sure to pay a visit to their beautiful sandy beach before the heavens opened, and even if we did get a little wet- an Autumn trip to the coast, isn't always a bad idea!

P.S Love this little fit-everything-in bag as much as I do? Henri Bendel now offer shipping to the UK- huzzah! Have a nosey at their bbeautiful bits, I promise you won't be disappointed!

  16. I've gone to the beach on New Year's Day before... it can be lovely if the weather's calm but the cold noses and windswept hair are not particularly blog worthy I'll admit! I love your outfit in this post, that H&M top is beautiful! x

  27. So dreamy! Even with the autumnal weather. Here in the Netherlands it's really a matter of minutes, when the weather might change, and I really need to adopt that British "Bring it on" attitude (and your sense of style!).

  28. I love the vintage style of the top - was surprised to see it was H&M - i'm so rubbish at finding anything I like in there!

    Margate sounds lovely, glad you managed to catch a bit of sunshine before the heavens opened!

  29. I love this little pastel number, and Margate has really embraced it's seaside nature recently - I love how the fair looks in Marina's latest music video.

  41. Aww! So lovely to see Margate being so heavily represented this past summer across all media. It is such a wonderful town, albeit a little rough around the edges, but so desperately trying to find and recreate a little of it's past glory! For anyone visiting I would heartily recommend taking a (twenty minute by car) detour to the nearby towns of Broadstairs and Ramsgate, both of which are also darling (and perhaps a little lesser known) particularly Viking Bay which in all honestly I believe is the prettiest beach in the whole of the UK.
