Brighton OOTD


So here we are, a post about a Brighton two weeks after going, hooray for broken laptops. I have been itching to write this post, it's my second outfit of the day and I rather like the photos, pebbles, sea and Brighton's west pier is a lovely background. I purposely spent time teaching my boyfriend the basics about my camera before the trip and I think these photos show he's learnt well, I may have my own personal photographer now.

Capes are a huge trend at the moment and although I own a cape coat, I was searching for a blanket cape as they are easy to throw on and seem very comfy. I spotted this monochrome checked cape here in the ASOS sale and I adore it. It's thick enough to keep me warm but can be used as a chunky scarf with a big coat which I decided to do for the cold evenings as the sea breeze is a little horrid in March. I chose the simplistic style and colours as I wanted it to pair well with my overly loved H&M black leggings and plain long sleeve t-shirts like this speckled grey one also from H&M.

I styled the outfit with chunky black brogues from New Look, a big floppy hat from H&M, Rayban Justin sunglasses and a big Steve Madden studded bag that I picked up from TK-Maxx. Jewelry wise
I wore a silver leaf pendant and silver rings from ASOS and H&M.

Months ago I would never have worn a floppy hat and had the confidence to stand on Brighton's sea front and pose in the wind, but I'm attempting to dress like an adult and do more fashion based posts on my blog. I'd love your advice on outfit pictures and definitely tips for posing!

Post your OOTD in the comments x

  1. Just stumbled upon your blog on twitter and it's great! Love this look but I'm currently trying to convince myself it's already summer so perhaps I won't buy a cape just yet! I recently visited Brighton too and there are a couple of posts about it over on my blog. Would be great if you could take a look! X
