Seasonal Beach – Stripes


The final outfit from my Seasonal Beach Series (white dress, navy, chino) covers everyones favourite seaside companion, the breton top. I’m obsessed with stripes. I have about 15 different striped tops, which are all different. Navy, black, red and grey, with a white panel at the top, without, long sleeved, short, cropped and long bodied. I don’t think I have ever met a boy that understood the need for all these varieties, although every girl I know totally gets it. It must be a girl thing.  This top has a lovely thick cotton which is perfect for an evening bbq on the beach when you want a bit of warmth.

Although finding a good pair of denim cutoffs can be equally challenging. I always buy a size much too big so they fall onto my hips not my waist. If I wanted waisted I would buy a 26-27, but for the hips I go to a 31-32. It means they are more relaxed and less ‘sexy’. Vintage or reclaimed ones are the best, the washes are so pale.
