I like to go to the seaside | Outfit Post

Tarten dress - New Look | Bowler Hat - Topshop | Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
Socks - Primark | Boots - New Look | Bag - Henry Holland

For the weekend, in a 'get better' program, I went down to Eastbourne to visit some people. And Eastbourne is my happy place, especially the beach. It is such a beautiful, scenic place, and it just shows, you don't need to run as far away as your can from England to find somewhere beautiful.

So, here I'm wearing my new tartan patterned 'dress', which, I put in quotations as it covers my bum about the same amount as I imagine Miley Cyrus would want it to. It's probably down to my longish legs, or my bum has grown in size, so I plan to just team it with leggings from now on, not the tights I'm sporting here. I'm also wearing my new bowler which I love. I've wanted one for years as I do don myself a very 'hat person', so I've bitten the bullet and bought!! (Try saying that 5 times fast.)

Sorry for the slight picture overload. I always think I post too many pictures, just say if so, I like hints and tips when it comes to blogging. Anyways, Question time:

How have you embraced the tartan trend that has come this Autumn?
Where is your 'happy place'?
Who remembers the Kooks?
(whatever happened to them?!)
