It was only the other day when chatting to Joe that I realised we'd yet to pay a visit to the great British seaside this year. Normally by August there'd have been at least a Brighton visit, but with the Great Escape escaping our calendar this year- it seems we've gone quite a time without heading to the coast! So, on one of our rare sunny Saturday's (and after finally getting over a naughty chest infection)- we headed down to Margate on a glorious Southeastern train, with our sunnies, reading material and the excitement of seaside chips all ready to go...



So naturally, I pretended to be Farrah Fawcett (with finer hair, duh) in a boyfriend style slogan tee (Matthew McConaughey reference et al) and my favourite girlfriend jeans, all I felt I needed was a skateboard and even flickier hair and I would have been set. Plus, for once I underestimated the weather and could have definitely whipped the shorts out- maybe for our next beach visit. Either way- catching up with my good pal Charlotte, scoffing my first Swedish brunch (!!) and playing at Dreamland made for a pretty special Saturday- I definitely won't leave it so long next time!

  1. I LOVE your pictures of Margate, they are amazing! I also LOVE the whole look of your blog. Maybe one day I'll be a great blogger myself (in my dreams) although much much older than you! Talking about the sea side, have you been to Folkestone? It's the next big thing! Is there a way a can contact you about my handbags brand? Would love to do something with you, I think you'd love it too!

  2. A very odd thing to say, but I prefer the British seaside than the American ones! I just find that they have more character than the ones in Cali. I LOVE your shirt, girrrrl. x

  25. Wow absolutely gorgeous photos! I went to Margate at the end of May of an exhibition at Dreamland and I wish I looked as cool as you did when I went there! I went on some of the rides, but didn't get chance to go to the beach. It was a lovely day though, which I keep meaning to blog about! Glad you had such a lovely day and looked so beautiful while doing so! XxxX

  32. I LOVE that tee and how the sleeves are slightly oversized. Wildfox makes the best funky tees and the material is always to die for. Love it.
