I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to get away with posting midriff baring outfits with shoes that parade open toes ('What a maverick!' I hear you cry), but even if it only supplies inspiration for those on the other side of the globe, I'm going to run with this relative Indian Summer, while we still have it- just try and stop me ; ). Anyway- upon visiting family at the seaside a Sunday or two ago, I couldn't resist stopping by for some nautical inspired snaps- and embracing the kitsch chippies dotted around Hastings Town centre.

I don't keep much of a secret about my love of the British seaside, but any excuse to take out a straw sunhat, indulge in a Sunday pub lunch (I have a new recommendation for anyone interested?) and catch up with family by the sea- gets a thumbs up in my books. I've yet to discover all of the treats Hastings has to offer, but if anyone has any recommendations for future visits, I'd love to know them! Now to work out how to style sandals in Autumn ; )...
