(Top: Orla Kiely (coming soon), Jeans: ASOS, Bag: Orla Kiely)

It dawned on me recently that Joe and I hadn't paid visit to our beloved Brighton in nearly a year and a half. I'm not quite sure how we've managed to let that happen, but with a travel fuelled 2016, and commitments filling up the end of the previous year- somehow we hadn't quite made enough time for the hour train journey to our favourite seaside abode. Good heavens indeed.

So, when presented with a clear Saturday in the diary (and naturally on the week Storm Doris hit, typical)- we decided to rectify the belated trip with an afternoon by the coast (with my common sense blissfully unaware that February by the sea is a very cold and windy affair. But! All weather conditions aside (and following a brief visit to the pier- not my wisest move), we truly had a lovely afternoon. I've often said before how it's not often we get to just soak up a city- but being able to head back to favourite shops (including Workshop and Our Daily Edit), people watch as we tucked into warm bagels in the Laines and then pick up gooey brownies for the train home made for a perfectly relaxed Saturday, and certainly the type I need to make more time for in 2017.

For places to go and stay in Brighton I have guides here, here and here!

P.S Sorry for the short photo post too! It was incredibly windy (see above) and we got a little lost with meandering around the shops to take more photographs! Oops!

  4. These pictures are gorgeous!

    Admittedly I've only visited Brighton once myself since moving down South, and definitely didn't have the time to explore as much as I wanted too!

    I feel like the place really suits you and your aesthetic, ever thought of moving? :)

  11. I can't believe how crazy that storm was, there were rubbish bins all down the street and fences falling over! Brighton does look so beautiful though even in the crazy wind!

  31. Sounds perfect! I'm so jealous that you only live an hour away from such a brilliant city. I live in Leics and don't drive - the train takes HOURS although it's been about 10 years since we last visited, so I think we might just have to bite the bullet.

  34. Brighton is such a cool city! However with storm Doris, I'm not surprised that it was so windy and difficult to take photos. The most important thing is that you enjoyed your day! Gooey brownies sound like something I could have just now haha.
    Also, your top is the cutest 'spring' top I've seen in a while!

  36. I can't believe I STILL haven't been to Brighton and I need to! It's number one on my UK to-travel list. No need to apologise for lack of photos - the ones that you do have are beautiful! Your bag is gorgeous and I love that it kinda matches the details on your top xx
