I spent last weekend with Ian up in Northumbria, a county with the most stunning coastline and beaches. We took a rather bracing stroll along the Tynemouth North Pier and because the sun finally decided to put in an (intermittent) appearance, it seemed appropriate to wear this yellow lace dress.
I love the midi length of this yellow lace dress. It has a nude lining which finishes above the knee, so it looks beautiful when the sun shines through. It has adjustable straps at the back too, which make for an excellent fit.
The swift dip in temperature when the sun went behind a cloud necessitated adding an extra layer. I’ve had this denim jacket longer than I’ve had my sixteen year-old and I never tire of wearing it.
The leopard print espadrilles are similarly hard-working. I’ve worn them over and over, although I did only get them earlier this year. (You can see them here with a pink broderie anglaise dress and here with a drapey floral dress ), Like denim, animal print is a brilliant, hard-working and versatile addition to the wardrobe.
The chunky pearl and heart t-bar bracelet is by Danon and is from my own online jewellery boutique. I have also got a matching necklace, both of which are available with a silver heart.
I’ve always been fascinated by and drawn to lighthouses- I don’t know why. The Tynemouth North Pier Lighthouse was built in 1903 and is a spectacular focal point.
I can only apologise for the crazy windswept state of my hair too! It was a very blustery day and my hair is disobedient at the best of times, reverting to its naturally wavy state at the merest hint of moisture or wind. These outtakes attest to the losing (lost?) battle.
My yellow lace midi dress was a gift from Joanie Clothing, (£45) and the gorgeous leather beach hut grab bag was a gift from Yoshi Bags, (£90). Just like Lizzy O, my own tiny jewellery and accessories boutique, (where my pearl bracelet and the bee ring in this post are from), these are small, independent businesses. We are all very grateful for your support!
