A Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach
On Saturday we packed up the car and headed for the beach to celebrate my friend Becky's birthday. We barbecued, toasted the birthday girl with Prosecco in jam jars and made friends with a lovely dog named Jess. Then basked in the sunshine chatting until everyone decided to to paddle and play frisbee, so Adam and I snuck off to take some photographs and investigate the rock pools. It was actually so hot that I had to wear my jacket because my shoulders were burning up!

When we returned my dear friends bullied me into swimming in the sea, since I live in Scotland I didn't even think to bring a bikini and ended up swimming (read: jumping in the waves) wearing my nice new frock. I would entirely recommend it, it was the most fun I've had in ages only then a huge wave completely engulfed me and my sunglasses were swept away, never to be seen again. I am really quite heart broken, any ideas where I can find a similar pair?

  5. Ouch! So sorry for your sunnies Cait :(
    I'd try to look for a similar pair on etsy, there are so many vintage beauties out there and usually more affordable than Asos or UO ones.
    On a brighter note, your retro inspired pedicure looks amazing! I shall get myself some of those circular stickers ;)

  9. Awwww, I'm sorry about your sunglasses but I totally think everyone should swim in the Scottish sea at least once in their life. I made the mistake of trying in February out near North Berwick and it was incredibly unpleasant. Gorgeous photos xo

  15. Urban Outfitters have very similar glasses like that. in both brown and black in the sale for £5. (okay i might work there...). I like them as they are a bit almost famous-y.

  21. That sucks you lost your sunglasses! Forever 21 always has about a million pairs, and since they're like $3 you can afford to lose them in the ocean!
