English Summer

Yesterday my family and I went on a day trip to West Wittering in Chichester West Sussex to visit the beautiful beach. West Wittering Beach is (in my opinion) a million times nicer than any of the beaches I was at last week in Mykonos Greece, this is because the sand is like the Seychelles – soft and warm enough to sleep in and the water is generally quite placid so perfect for swimming. For the occasion I opted for boyfriend jeans – they are my go to for these in-between weather days, loose enough to keep you cool but cosy enough in case it gets chilly, I paired them with this floaty white Chloe-esque top from Zara, my sandals that I bought in the market in Florence two years ago (top hint – some of my favourite items of Summer clothing are bought in markets and are relatively cheap but amazing quality, I bought the sandals for around 50 euros and they’re beautiful leather, similarly the majority of the beach dresses I wear are bought in markets and are rarely cost more than 30 euros) but I’ve added some similar below. To accessorise I paired my Forever 21 bag which I still absolutely adore with my Dior So Real shades. Beauty wise I kept my base simple with the Smashbox SPF 30 CC cream and dabbed on some Burberry Kissing lipstick in English Rose.

    If you like sandy beaches, you must visit Antalya or Bodrum, Turkey. The Turkish beaches are so beautiful and sandy (super soft sand) and they’re just amazing!

    As always you look amazing, Tijan, I love the top and sandals. The beach looks beautiful and I imagine it’d be great to go there in winter too, I love rugged, cold beaches xxx

    Love this look. It’s so relaxing and effortless, yet totally chic. SHOCKED that bag is from Forever 21. I would’ve guessed it was real. Love that!
