Sunny?! Yeah right.
Whilst staying with Lucy in Surrey we decided to pop down to Brighton for the day. I had never been before, but had heard lots about it so I was very excited to see what the fuss was about. We started off by spending time around the pavilion and grabbing some pizza before heading towards The Lanes to do a little window shopping. Due to an early start, nasty weather and no money, I wasn’t much in the mood for shopping so i’m afraid I don’t have any tips for you, but i’m 100% sure i’ll return to Brighton again sometime in the future – there is lots to see!
Again, I can’t be sure what my friend miss Lucy is wearing but she’ll be posting up her Brighton pictures very soon, so keep an eye out on her blog if you’re interested.
Our next stop was the pier, and the weather just got worse and worse (along with my poor hair!). So, it was lucky that I had put on my new Orla Kiely coat to keep me warm – bought at their sample sale a few days earlier. I bought it for the same price as a Topshop coat might be, and it’s ever so warm. I’ve told myself that my coat collection is definitely too large now, so as a new one appears..one must go (i’m thinking of selling the ever-popular Topshop sailor coat as I don’t get much wear out of it at all? Anyone interested?).
I love wearing this mustard colour – it’s not a bright yellow, but has that 60s/70s vibe that i’m so into at the moment and matches so perfectly with browns. Anyway, the last picture really sums up our time on the pier – getting drenched through but making the most of our time there anyway, like typical British people.
Milkshake & Fries
After our little stint on the pier, we had to find somewhere to dry-off and refuel..which brought us to JBs Diner, recommended to me by Sarah on Twitter. Lucy, who dried her hair off under the hand drier, ordered a huge milkshake, whilst I enjoyed some cheesy fries (my favourite!). It was really quiet in there but the atmosphere was still great, with Lucy & I bopping and singing along to 50s music.
I can’t wait to return to Brighton again on a nicer day – does anybody have any tips?! x
