A Day At The Beach

 In Style

It feels like so long since I last sat down and wrote a post, life has just been so hectic lately that I’ve not had time to do much.

That’s why we took a break and headed over to the Western Isles for a week.

The Isle of Lewis is one of these places where the scenery is incredible, the people are friendly and the pace of life is just so much more relaxed, ideal for a stress-relieving trip away.

We had the car with us, so we often took day trips around the island and down to Harris where you’ll find some of the most incredible beaches. Luskentyre beach is one of those worldies.

Imagine crystal clear water that’s as blue as the sky but with the dramatic rocky backdrop that the Highlands & Islands are famous for and you’ve got Luskentyre.

It’s also not often that you get great weather up here, but when you do it’s absolutely glorious.

I’m still pretty much stuck with a full winter wardrobe at the moment as money has been tight due to the lack of a proper job. That’s changing though, as I’ve just started a new job thankfully.

Luckily, I was approached by Asquith & Fox who kitted me out with lighter summer wear and the beach trip was the perfect opportunity to try them on.

For this look, I’m wearing the slim fit classic chino in slate paired with the classic pique polo shirt in natural.

I love neutral tones and these two just worked great together as well as keeping me cool on a warm summers day.

I pretty much live my life in jeans and a t-shirt 24/7, but I love these and can see them both working well as individual pieces with various other outfit combinations. You can be assured that these will stay in my wardrobe for the rest of summer.

After getting the shots we packed up the camera, relaxed and just enjoyed the sunshine and paddled in the sea. I say paddled, I actually mean stood in the water for about three seconds then buckled in pain due to how cold it was.

It was a brilliant trip to somewhere that I’ve returned to every year for the last four years and if you’ve never been I highly recommend it.

It’s back to reality now though and the start of an exciting new journey and I really cannot wait to see what the future holds.

Some of the products in this post were gifted to me, but as always all opinions are my own.

    You are so photogenic! I wish I could take outfit photos as well as you do! This beach looks excellent too, I’ve never been before, I’ll stick it on the bucket list (pardon the pun).

    Also, I know how it is with things being hectic and not being able to just sit down and write a post. I bet you felt great after smashing this one out!

    Keep up the great work, dear! X

      Thanks Charlene. I’ve got a pretty good photographer to thank for the photos haha. Your outfit photos are great too.

      You’ve definitely got to visit if you can. It’s breathtaking.

      Tell me about it. I’m starting to slowly get a grip of being organised again. Just a few more things to sort and I should be good. I see you’re getting back into the flow of things again which is great. Keep pushing forward!
