Outfit of the Day ~ Sea Dreaming


Do you want to go to the seaside?
I'm not trying to say that everybody wants to go
I fell in love at the seaside
She handled her charm with time and slight of hand
- The Kooks, Seaside

Last Saturday the boyfriend and I wandered through the lanes, grabbing a pastry breakfast on the way; I opted for a chocolate plait and some mince pies for later and he went for his usual croissants. It was such an unusually sunny but perfect November day. We hung about on the pier and spent some time sitting on the beach, enjoying the weather. At the end of the pier tucked behind the rides was a couple just chilling out on a pair of deck chairs just enjoying the sea, it was so sweet.

 Jacket: vintage (from this fair). I was so happy when I found this since I'd spotted one in a vintage shop a few weeks ago but it had been too small. When I saw this at the fair it look about 5 seconds for me to buy it, it fitted better and it was cheaper (£12!) than the one I had seen before (£25).
Dress: old ASOS. It's falling apart, much to my dismay but I just can't bring myself to throw it away, even though the elastic is degrading at a very fast rate.

 Necklace: super vintage (belonged to my great grandmother).
I've also decided to enter this into www.ethicalfashionblog.com's competition since I consider this outfit to be ethical due to the fact that the blazer is vintage, so no new materials were used to make it and the watch is a hand-me-down and I don't think it gets more ethical than that.

Belt: old ASOS
You might have noticed my hair is still blonde in these photos, this is because I dyed my hair that very evening, but I wanted to show you all my new color so I ignored the fact that there would be a bit of a continuity error.

Eye makeup: I used three shades (Blossom, Pink Lemonade and Blush) from my Frontcover Rainbow Eyes box which I use all the time.

 Shoes: old New Look. I always get compliments for these shoes and they go with pretty much everything. They deserve a bit of a polish really.
As always all photos are taken by the boyfriend, who's tumblr and deviantart exhibit more of his work, of which most does not involve me, so check him out.
