Living in Suffolk can sometimes feel a tad secluded when you’re used to living in the big old smoke of London Town. Since moving up here two years ago I noticed quite the considerable difference in the culture of the two places. A sleepy little coastal county which is just a mere hour away from the hustle and bustle of London Town, you can often find yourself at a bit of a loss with what to do here.
However sometimes you just have to put your mind to it and quite often you can find some of the most picturesque places Suffolk has to offer. The start of this month was brought in by a Bank Holiday (hoorah for three day weekends) and Ollie and I decided to head to our nearest seaside to soak in some sunshine. Perhaps not the furthest of adventures however it just shows that some of the prettiest places are very close to home.
Whenever we visit Felixstowe we tend to just stick to the Promenade and the Pier – playing on the amusements and going for short wanders along the seafront. This day however we decided to walk the entire length of the beach right up to the very point of the coast overlooking into Harwich. Towards the end of the coastline we were met by golden sands, yachts breezing by and a very quiet beach far far away from the busy bustle of holiday makers. Ah bliss!
This season we have seen many brands bringing back the gorge trend of silk bombers. I remember when they first became a big thing a few years ago however the game has really been upped recently with the influences of dusty pinks and khakis infiltrating the trend. I decided to dig out one of my favourite silk bombers to take with me to the seaside on this occasion – a little number I purchased from Primark a couple of years ago. Teamed with a cute denim skirt from Topshop and a mustard roll neck it made a great outfit for a day by the sea.
