Shopping my stash

We all love a good shopping trip, especially when it is free right? How do I have one of these I hear you ask.Well for me this came in the form of ‘shopping my stash’ as in finding something crumpled in the back of your wardrobe, realising that you actually really like it and want to try and re-invent it in a new way. This is what happened with this lovely little Zara checkered shirt of mine. As someone who probably does own one too many chequered shirts this one in recent times had been rather neglected. But in an effort to just put the beloved grey one down for just 5 minuets I grabbed this green one and once again loved how it looked. Paired with my Nobody’s Child black jumpsuit which I just can’t get enough of this was a great method of layering for when the summer nights are beginning to get chilly.

Now I have never considered myself much of a beach babe before, with the whole idea of stripping off into pretty much underwear in front of a large group of strangers while having sand get into all those places you really don’t want it to (especially your tuna sandwiches) isn’t the most appealing afternoon for me. However this year while on holiday in Norfolk I decided to throw caution to the wind and actually crack out a real life pair of shorts (I know, living life on the edge!) Turns out it really isnt quite that painful after all.

For anyone who may have taken a gander on my instagram over the past week (where have you been if you haven’t ;) ) there may have been a few subtle hints/me spamming you that this last bank holiday weekend I was away in the lovely sea side town of Cromer. Now I know it may not be the most exotic place in the world with a few more pensioners than palm trees, however give me a beach, some cute streets and some good proper fish and chips then I am a happy Chloe.

To start with the weather looked as if it was going to be against us with the forecast seeming to change at the drop of a hat, leaving my summery packed suitcase the night before starting to notice its sever lack of jumpers (how miss layering obsessed here didn’t pack any I will never know). But luckily the sun decided to dust of his hat for the last few days and give us some glorious sunshine, and all with me managing to not get burnt this year, which is always an added bonus.

With the weather just managing to tickle 20 degrees plus the sea side breeze, layering was the name of the game for day one. With my current addiction to the plain T under strappy top trend, another trend which makes me wonder whatever I used to wear before it, I cracked out one of my favourite summer purchases being this black jumpsuit from Nobodies Child. Being a light weight it was nice and cool when the weather got a bit warmer yet covered up enough to keep the breeze away.
