The holiday was a lovely week long trip to Looe in Cornwall with my partner, his brother and cousin and their partners. I love Cornwall, I used to go on holiday there a lot with my family when I was kid. I know it's an increasingly popular holiday destination and is maybe getting over touristy in places, but I still love walking around the coastal paths and exploring the countryside and beaches.
So here I am on the beach! This is what I wore on the first day, exploring and walking. We started the holiday with the longest walk, we walked over to the next town, Polperro, via the coastal path, it's about 4.5 miles on the main roads, we were thinking it would be a fairly long walk, but it might only take us a couple of hours. We forgot about the wiggly pathways and the ascents, descents etc... I'm glad I wore my converse trainers, probably the most sensible walking shoes I own. Even though it was tiring I really enjoyed being outside and challenging myself more physically as a lot of my time at home is spent on a computer, sat down (something I need to change).
This dress is a 2nd hand find which I altered, I trimmed and scalloped the hem and altered the neck line with a bit of bond-a -web to create some small lapels. I'm also wearing my diy-ed leather harness, made from a few skinny leather belts, I think it gives the rather girly dress a bit of an edge (or it makes me look like I'm wearing those sets of child reigns that stop children from running away-ha!).
