worn: seaside sandals and floral prints

In true typical British fashion, after a week of glorious weather, the sun seems to have buggered off completely. Pah. It’s been back to snatching an hour here and there in the garden, spending time with noses pressed against the window, looking forlornly at the rain, and worst of all, coats. Ugh.
Today was another grey, drizzly, windy day, so I thought it’d be the perfect time to share some photos and an outfit post from a gloriously sunny day trip we had a a couple of weeks ago. I always think we’re really lucky where we live – ten minutes by car in either direction and you can be standing on the shoreline, immersed in countryside or surrounded by great independent shops. We took a wander around Old Portsmouth, which I love – I’ve lived here my whole life, but never get tired of pottering around the stone steps and exploring the tunnels and walls.

It was the perfect day to break out my new Saltwater sandals, that I’d bought the week before from Toast – I originally fell in love with them for the design (and the colour – bright popping orange, amazing!), but honestly cannot rate them highly enough for their comfort. The first time I put them on, they felt like they’d been made specifically around my feet – I usually dread sandal weather, because I’ve never found a pair of sandals that are actually comfortable unless you’re covered in plasters, but these were like a dream. Goodbye, Elastoplast!
I paired them with my usual favourite skinny jeans, a charity shop floral top, a clashing floral cardigan and a vintage jacket with yet another floral print. There’s nothing I like more in clothes than a good pattern…

Dear Saltwater Sandals, you’re the bestest. Love from Me.

    You're the second person who's commented on how comfy Saltwater sandals are – hmm, might have to invest. I love layering up clashing floral prints. If it looks like you got dressed in the dark, then that's a top look as far as I'm concerned.PS. You look like you have a dirty laugh in that last shot x

      I honestly can't recommend them enough – I'm thinking about buying a second pair. I'm just gutted they don't do some sort of t-bar mary-jane extravaganza version! PS I do, sometimes, ha!
