A few weekends ago, at the start of the beautiful weather, I went to Southbourne Beach. Earlier in the day, I went to a few of the vintage shops in Boscombe before heading to the beach. I am not keen on British beaches because they are always jam-packed during summer and I hate seeing people sizzling away in the sun. I couldn't spend a whole day at the beach but we managed to find an area with a bit of space and had ourselves an M&S beach picnic.
As mentioned in a previous post, I had recently acquired a 1930s parasol. It got it's debut at the beach and it was accompanied by my 1950s Kahala playsuit. I bought this playsuit at Beyond Retro a few years ago and it fits amazingly! It is one of my favourite go-to outfits in hot weather.
