BEACH

Sunday, 25 March 2012

The sunshine was ever so slightly more forthcoming today, so like any dreadful "Brits on tour" stereotype, we donned our bikinis and headed to the beach. The locals kept looking at us like we were mad (they were still in coats), but as far as I'm concerned it was perfect sunbathing temperature, and I'm pleased to report that my tan is coming along nicely!

I really do worship at the Alter of the Sun. The reason for this is that, when I'm pale, I don't get that pretty, delicate, almost translucent porcelain skin. I inherited my Ma's Chinese skintone, which is quite olive when tanned, but too many months without the sun and I start to look really sallow and unhealthy. Bleugh. 

Here's what I wore today:

Hat - Topshop; Sunglasses - ASOS; Top - ASOS; Shorts - Blue Rinse
After a busy day stuffing my face with paella and playing winning at beach football, I'm having a quiet night in introducing Miss B to Game of Thrones, which she's never seen. I think it's pretty essential that she's up to speed before season two starts (which, incidentally, I'm manically excited about).

  1. Aw, really gorgeous outfit. Very summery. I love the coral colour of that top. I'm pale in the winter and sunburn in the summer! Nice combo :L xx

    1. Very nice! I actually bought the top last January (as in 2011...), this is the first time I've found something it "works" with so I'm very happy about that!

    1. Thank you! And me too, I'm a bit in love with Jon Snow (of the Black Watch, not the C4 presenter... Although it must be said, he's pretty fab too...)
