Jacket Zara | Top Uniqlo | Pants Gmarket | Sheos ALDO | Bag Alphabetbags.com | Sunnies ASOS | “Bodychain” DIY

Took a train down to Portsmouth with Ellen to visit the D-Day museum and spend a day at the beach. The weather was a bit too chilly to relax on the pebbles but we did windsurf on the boardwalk. The wind literally pushed us down the far side of the beach where we had to refuel ourselves with cotton candy and icecream to propel back against the monster. I must say, something about cotton candy makes you feel like you have an extra limb and wheels on your toes, or was that just us high on sugar.

British seaside is so lovable, the colours and the smell… feels so good taking a break from the city.

  2. your photos are always sooo nice. Love your seafoam top. I always thought it was funny that alot of the beaches in england are pebble-filled…must be painful to lie on no?

  11. I love the jacket! However, I’m going to have to disagree with you about British beaches; as a resident of Britain, they all seem to hate me. It’s rather rude actually, sun goes in, rain clouds loom over and sea swallows the beach.
    I.e. I’ve had some bad experiences there.

    It would be mine
