June Beach Walks and Pastel Skinnies

Tuesday, June 3

As the first of June was nice and sunny Scott and I decided to walk the 2 miles from my house to the beach with the dogs. I know how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful area and want to make the most of it while it is nice enough to get out. It only takes about half an hour to walk down the country road and the dogs absolutely love the water. In true blogger tradition I took my camera along with me for the journey and had the hope that Scott might be able to take outfit pictures for me. Yesterday he did apologise "but i didn’t get a full body shot of you" and when I pointed out that he was in control of the camera he told me "me and a camera ain't really that great..." but I'm sure we will have plenty time to practise over summer. I think they are kinda cute and look more like me than most of my outfit photos.

Shirt: M&S | Jeans: Monkee Genes
I've been itching to wear these monkee genes since I acquired them in January but was struggling to style them until I came across this white kaftan style shirt in my wardrobe. It is the perfect length to cover the top of these low rise jeans and subtle enough to let the pastel blue be the main feature of the outfit. I love how light weight the shirt is which always makes it perfect for those rare warmer days. These jeans are a lot tighter than I'm used to but I wanted some jeans from monkee genes for so long I'm just going to get used to it. 

If you would like to see a fuller outfit post on this particular outfit please let me know below. Also how do bloggers managed to look perfect and keep their hair down while on location? It wasn't even that bright and I'm squinting but I think that might just be my sensitive eyes. 

I would like to point out I had a stick in my hand and I'm not just doing some crazy dance with my dog. I hope you've enjoyed this slightly unusual outfit/lifestyle post so please let me know in the comments.
