oh i do like to be..



Last week, when we had some ACTUAL summery weather, was the perfect opportunity to give this beautiful skirt, sent to me by Ronke of Love ur Look, its first outing. 

As soon as I saw this skirt on the website, I knew it was the one for me. Having lived by the coast pretty much all my life, I knew it was be perfect for trips to the beach. Long enough so that the sea breeze doesn't blow it around and reveal your underwear (!) but light cotton so you keep cool. 
 
Ronke's Love ur Look collection is heavily inspired by the 1950s, and has an amazing range of fun, printed fabrics. There are loads of different styles, so there's something for everyone.

I'm a big fan of vintage style, especially the 1950s. I love the way dresses and skirts from that era nip you in at the waist, and make you feel so feminine. I felt quite at home among the weathered boats, rusty anchor and crab pots!











I'm so glad my mum and I seized the opportunity to spend the whole day at the beach, as the weather has taken a turn for the worst again now! It was just the best beaching day - we listened to Billie Holiday, ate icecreams, paddled and had a fish supper!

Thank you mum for taking these photos for me, and thank you Ronke for the wonderful skirt!

  6. We had some lovely weather last week but I was on guide camop with 500 kids to organise for a week, so I sadly didn't get chance to hit the beach. I'm going for a beach date at the weekend, though I know I won't look as pretty as you :) X
