Hello, Sailor

One of the stops on the Brendan Benson tour a few weeks ago was Portsmouth. My girls and I were desperate for some sea air so we decided to book an extra day down there and soak it all in. Bliss.


With my love of London & New York and being desperate all my life to live just on the outskirts of the city (rather than an hours bus ride away that I endured in my childhood) it is no secret that I am a total city girl, but there’s just something about the sea air, something that you need in your lungs. And without it, you begin to feel like you can’t breathe.

I took hundreds of photos that day, most of which will probably remain in the depths of my SD card. We walked along the pebble beaches, visited the amusements, found a lighthouse(!), had lunch by the window to watch the waves and followed the sea as far as we could before heading home to get ready to see the friends we’d missed and hear the music that awaited us.

I wanted to dress kind of nautical for the occasion, but without being too twee. I found this vest in my drawer that I had bought a few years previous at H&M for £3 and never worn. It still had the tags on! My cardigan is from Forever 21; I bought it in Times Square, New York and now when I wear it, it gives me a happy heart :)
