just like the thoughts of my mind

Sun sea and sand

I didn't have my swimming cossie because I was expecting rain in Bournemouth but that didn't stop me whipping off my gladiators and rolling up my harems for a paddle in the sea during an early morning beach walk.

Me and my lovely friend Dee (she really is lovley)

This is the closest to an outfit post as I totally forgot to get my camera out for the rest of the day :(

I'm wearing Satin Harems (ankle length but rolled up in this pic) Limited collection from M&S, I bought them brand new with tags from the charity shop for £1.80, they had a button missing fom one of the ankle cuffs - a spare of which was attached to the tags, hey I'm not complaining! Teamed with a back TopShop vest 99p from charity shop and beaded TopShop Jacket £6 from charity shop, added grey pearls from Asda yonks ago £3 in the sale, vintage pearls which were a gift from boyf (I'm wearing these a lot a the mo), silver bangle from carboot and FCUK sunglasses 99p from charity shop.

We were out playing with the gorgeous Sharon (also in harems) and the beautiful Justine,a New Yorker spending the summer in Paris who came over to join us for the weekend.

Another friend Chris bought along a couple of suitcases in the back of her car for people to help themselves, oh my goodness.  A couple of my freebies are below:

I nabbed a few other bits too and it felt like Christmas had come early.

And despite a 7 hour journey home yesterday and not getting home until after 11pm, I managed to get myelf to the 10am boot sale at the cricket club (ha I make sound like a hardship) but I'll share some my finds with you tomorrow, my bed is calling

Ta ta for now

Looks like a beautiful day :)

Love your outfit - not everyone could pull of silk harems but they look gorgeous on you, & what a bargain!?

Those blue shoes you acquired are rather pretty - can't wait to see what else you got..

What a beautiful day! I do love Bournemouth beach. And I agree with the above about the harems, they look amazing on you and what a bargain!

Looks like a fab time was had by all, and how generous of Chris to give away such fab stuff!
