Saturday, the royal wedding – I couldn’t just ignore it? Sadly I had to work, however we managed to watch the whole thing on the iPad without many interruptions – customers wanting to be served during the ceremony? I don’t think so. Afterwards a few friends and I took advantage of the beautiful weather by heading to the beach for fish & chips with the obligatory ice cream.
I often forget that not everybody has the luxury to drive 10 minutes to arrive at the beach, certainly making us very lucky so as summer slowly creeps up on us we often take advantage of the light nights spending our time down on the sand until dark.
By the time we’d eaten and walked down the wind was a bit nippy but luckily I’d planned it well by wearing trousers, these are my summer staple linen trousers I got from Mango, I’ve been looking for a straight leg pair like these that are high waisted and I finally found them. The button fasting at the front gives them some detail making it much easier to wear casually with a shirt or tee without having to worry about much else. I paired mine with a pair of white Birkenstocks and ‘honey’ tee which I got from New Look, it’s almost sold out on the website but I bought mine from a store so it’s likely there’s still some available.
With it I had sunglasses from & other stories and my newly purchased earrings from Accessorise. I’ve had my denim shirt for quite a while and worn it so much the label’s rubbed off so I can’t actually say where it comes from.
When I was younger living in the countryside wasn’t “cool” and the thought of big cities was particularly of interest to me – but now, even visiting them can be somewhat overwhelming. 10 year old me certainly thought at 19 I’d be moved out living in London somewhere but as I’ve learnt there really is no need to plan your life out as it’s never going to go exactly that way, no matter how desperate we may be for it. It’s when I think of this that I’m so grateful to be living this life in this body of mine and I can’t think of any other people I’d rather be living it with.
