Despite the fact I will probably be on a sail boat for approximately one of fourteen days this holiday I'm not letting that stop me from putting together a natty little nautical clothing selection. A growing addiction to breton stripes is causing me to run the risk of being mistaken for someone taking the piss out of French people. Maybe time to lose the string of garlic? Stripes + boatneck meant this little baby from New Look didn't stand a chance. The white shorts and sandals were both Matalan bargains. The striped maxi dress is from Ted Baker courtesy of Bicester Village designer outlet village (and more specifically my boyfriend). J actually picked it out saying, 'Maybe something like this for in the evenings on holiday?' before buying it for me! No need to explain how fond I am of him. This dress is the comfiest thing in the world but also makes you feel glam and swishy. My new favourite.
