A walk along the beach…

A weekend away with three friends in Dorset meant a capsule wardrobe of comfortable, practical pieces which I could layer and which I didn’t mind getting mucky. I think that the emphasis was more on comfort than anything else. I seem to remember donning PJ bottoms at about 6pm on Saturday evening. 


Our Saturday started with a wander around the local town, progressed to lunch at a beach café after which we went for a walk along the beach. It was warm enough for me to go down to two layers – shocking, I know – hence the coat around my waist and the jumper around my shoulders.


Even if in scruffs I still like a bit of jewellery so on went the yellow necklace, which picked up the yellow in the jumper and also in the bag. The grey jeans, green parka and navy wellies (I have to be so careful with that word as it always auto-corrects to “willies”) were a bit random but who cares – I was on holiday!!! I don’t think that I did the whole wellies in the town thing – choosing to wear Zara ankle boots instead.


[The denim shirt was sold out online and I still can’t find it although they were meant to have had new stock. Although I have seen the Parka in Zara, it’s not on the site (it’s a basic one) but I have included links to the ones they have. Mine is closest to the one on the top left of the link. Again the COS jeans are the nearest that I could find.]

    A weekend away with friends where you don your pj bottoms at 6, sounds like bliss to me! And if you call that outfit 'scruff', I shudder at what you'd say to some of my more 'casual' rig-outs!!!!

    Is that the lightweight parka with gold zip etc? I have that one and love it but struggle with accessioning the mix of gold/silver – any tips/advice on that? Am I being to fussy is it okay to mix gold and silver? Love your style!
