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.

The Real Flower Confetti Company

You know when you are flicking through the pages of Vogue or Elle and for the featured fashion shoot they have a stunningly beautiful models just causally lounging around in an  field bursting with brightly coloured flowers as if out of some sort of fairytale. Rather than lusting over the designer goods, I am always the one wondering what tiny corner to the earth to they have to go to to find such a beautiful location. Well turns out little old Worcestershire seems to be the place.

This beautiful field of flowers belongs to the The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company based in Pershore, Worcestershire. Since 1997 they have been home growing natural, biodegradable real flower confetti supplying the general public, TV and films and even royalty.  For the past 2 years for 10 days only they have been opening their gates to one of their beautiful fields to the public. With a strike of luck of finding out about this place on day one out of 10 how could you not go and give it a little nosey (and what better location to try out the brand new camera!).

The weather unfortunately wasn’t on its very best behaviour all day with some short sharp April showers deciding to rear their ugly head in July, but by middle afternoon the sun had come out and the sky had turned blue and made the whole place just look far too perfect.

But I know what your saying after wading through picture after picture of flowers at slightly different angles, ‘But Chloe, you went to such a beautiful location and decided not to take any outfit photos?’ don’t worry dear friends, all will come in due course ;)

The feilds are open until the 10th of July so get down there while they are still open
