The perfect way to Brighton up my day!
On Thursday Rob took me on a surprise trip to Brighton to celebrate my birthday. I think Brighton has to be one of my favourite places of all time. I love getting lost in the lanes, watching the world go by whilst pausing for coffee and dipping my toe in the sea, if I'm feeling brave. The whole day was just perfect, with the beaming sunshine, the food, the arcades, the company! The day was sandwiched by brunch at Bill's in the morning, the most incredibly colourful place with sky high shelves of homemade condiments, and dinner at Terre a Terre in the evening, a delectable haven for a vegetarian. We explored the lanes and strolled to the end of the pier, triumphing in arcades by winning £5 on horse racing game. I wanted to bet again but the sensible one amongst us thought we should quit whilst we were ahead! The day was lost watching people being catapulted around in the funfair, eating, drinking and having splendid fun in the sun.
I wore my gorgeous floral dress from Dolly Bow Bow paired with my lilac converses for maximum comfort! The dress, with its cinched waist, vibrant pattern and winged back is simple lovely albeit a little troublesome when confronted with the cheeky coastal breeze. The skirt is loosely layered to give a pretty 50's style to it which I absolutely love but with the wind in Brighton that day, it did provide me with a few Marilyn Monroe moments...much to the amusement of Brighton beachfront. I had such a lovely day and feel truly spoilt. My birthday celebrations are almost over now and its back to work and reality on Monday morning. Only 361 days to go until the next one...
