Seaside Style

Every time I go on holiday to a British seaside resort in Devon or Cornwall, I always pack a suitcase of my favourite outfits and some practical and warm clothes for the unpredictable British weather and of course for making sandcastles on the beach with the children. When I arrive, I never feel like I have brought the right clothing and long for some of what I would describe as seaside clothing. This is the sort of clothes that I would never dream of wearing at home but just seems so perfect and stylish for wandering around seaside towns, flying a kite or chilling out on the beach.

Perhaps it is the change of routine and all that fresh air that gives me complete style amnesia until the point where I leave to go home. Perhaps it is that all of my favourite clothes from home are impractical for wearing on the beach or perhaps it is that the seaside towns of Devon and Cornwall are full of shops piled high with outdoorsy seaside style clothes. Think Seasalt, Whitestuff, Joules and some lovely boutique style shops.

I would never usually be seen dead in a hoody but for the duration of my holiday, hoodies, cropped trousers and surfer chic dresses are all objects of desire.

VINTAGE FREAK CLOTHING said...

I love vintage clothing, finding one of pieces of clothing that no one has is such a great feeling, just because no one will be wearing it, only you.

I have been buying vintage clothing from ebay a lot and found this ebay store called vintagefreakclothing - http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/vintagefreakclothing__W0QQ_armrsZ1

Anything vintage and retro is there, from peacoats to vintage t-shirts.

They also have a facebook group called vintage freak clothing, check that out aswell because they have some funny videos and prize draws happening every week, something called FREAK of the week.

There slogan is

ROCK THE VINTAGE UNLEASH THE FREAK
