Beach style 2014Radiant Orchid Dazzling Blue

Not often is it that I find myself deliberately wearing the colours of the season but I found myself doing just that on a day trip to Wells-Next-The-Sea a few weeks ago. I know it's usually quite breezy along the coast so I knew tights would be essential but I didn't want to bulk up with a massive jumper so I went for a lighter knit and my trusty leather jacket. This cute little bag is such a lovely pink, bright and cheerful but not overly girly for my liking and seems to work particularly well with the dazzling blue jumper and made for a bold yet simple colour combination. This pleated polka dot skirt can be relied upon oh-so-often these days; it's long enough to be appropriate for every occasion, loose enough to eat a good meal and monochrome which is something of a rareity I my wardrobe. White tights! I have never worn these before and I'm not massively sure they suit me but for the outfit in question they were my favourite choice, worn of course with my Yull Chelsea boots which are always topping my list of practical footwear for every day.

Jumper, bag, necklace – charity shops, jacket – Ebay, boots – Yull, tights – Primark, sunglasses – QD
