The scorcher of a weekend was partly spent down on the essex coast with my family, I am such a sucker for the english seaside. We ventured down to West Mersea, its one of mum and dads favourite places. There are some beautiful cottages and cute lanes.
I did a little bit of charity shopping and picked up a few pieces that I want to adjust and resize, I feel in love with some vintage artist shirts that were too expensive for me to even look at let alone buy! Went spent a good few hours sunning ourselves on the beach watching people paddle and boats sail by. I think I became 4 times darker whilst sat on the beach, hello tan lines.
Me and Mum had ice cream to die for, I had chocolate chunk and mum had elderflower and lime, and she WILL NOT stop going on about it. I get the impression she liked it! We got dad a tub of double fudge which I had to dash back from town, then I devoured some olives oops! It was so nice to get out of the studio and spend the day drawing people dipping my toes in the sea and collecting shells. As a child I always wanted to own a shell shop when I was older…true fact, i collected them knew all their fancy names and had a special book to log them all, quite glad I grew out of that faze but could you imagine how amazing my shell shop would be?
Everything ( except for sandals which are primark) I am wearing in my photos was bought second hand, also whist on the beach I wore shorts for the frist time in about 15 years, I was so proud of myself for getting my legs out sounds really silly but when you are overweight and hate your legs thats a big deal!
Isn’t the weather just lovely at the moment, I hope you have been able to enjoy it in someway.
