Pastels by the Pool

It just wasn’t filled with water, since 10 degrees is apparently not “swimming weather.” These photos were taken during my recent trip to Sorrento, on the terrace of our villa. This is what I wore to dinner on our last night in Italy, where everyone had a little too much to drink – we were some of the first to arrive, and the last to leave! I bought this vintage jumpsuit in London when I was visiting the lovely Laila. The bodice was a little long for me, so I took the sleeves in on the shoulder seam. I just love how colourful it is, and I love how wide the legs are!

I’m not sure if you can tell in the photos, but I’m wearing gold lipstick, and I’ve slicked some of it over my eyelids as well, to match my golden shoes. It’s a fun way of having a golden complexion without actually being anymore tanned! I love these shoes and I’ve had them forever, but they’re impossible to walk in. I have a real problem with shoes – I only really like the look of high heels but I’m both too tall and too lazy to wear heels during the daytime, or to do any kind of walking in heels. Finding flat shoes that I like is hard!

What I Wore: Robin Hood’s Bay

Having the time to explore Yorkshire recently has been great, there are so many beautiful places to visit! I have been to Robin Hood’s Bay before but it is always lovely. There is a really steep hill that winds through the village to the beach, and the village is filled with quaint little shops. The beach is long and sandy, full of rock pools and surrounded by dramatic cliffs. We even swam in the sea – it was cold! Putting together beach outfits is lots of fun, and this is what I wore!

I am wearing a vintage bed jacket, vintage playsuit (it must be homemade because the pockets have been sewn on backwards!) H&M sunglasses, People Tree necklace, and this sunhat was a gift. The only reason it is not blowing down the beach is that there are hat pins holding it to my head. I’m so glad I discovered hat pins, I no longer have to walk around with my hand on my head holding my hat down.

Thank you Denise for taking photos of me!

As you read this I will be reading a book by the pool in Menorca! I am sure that future me is having a wonderful time there 🙂 It might even be a little sunnier than the Yorkshire coast. I hope you’re having a wonderful Friday!
