Yesterday,with the sun shining and shockingly cheap train tickets on our side,
my beau and I decided to take a day trip to Brighton.
The sun was shining but it was freezing cold so we made a bee-line for the pier, to have a go on the arcade games, dolphin derby (my boy) and hook a duck(me)
we couldn't resist this photo op!
After the pier we had a stroll round the shops then had fish and chips on the beach for lunch!
the old pier is such a sorry sight.
I thought it was the ideal place to do some posing, I'm so sick of big coats and layers at the moment
so I decided to rebel against the wind (i paid for it later) and wear my favourite skirt, 1940s jacket and shock horror one pair of stockings!
I just had to include a close up of my skirt, its the cutest novelty pirate print
and was one of my very first real vintage buys!
A firm wardrobe favourite, it never fails to cheer me up.
I teamed my skirt and jacket with faux fur scarf, 1950s cream case bag and red heart shaped sunglasses.
These are another of my favourite things as my best friend and I both bought a pair
from our very first Marilyn Manson concert a few years ago.
After a long stroll along the sea front we headed back to the big smoke for a huge mexican feast
I've been feeling abit off again recently regarding both style and general life stuff, I don't know what the trigger has been and as nice as this weekend has been, I've still not been feeling right today.
maybe it's just a little trip in the road, oh well,
heres to hopin', heres to copin' as the saying goes!
hope everyone else has been having a wonderful weekend!
Love Hollie xx
