Brighton Beach (And Bonus Photo Diary!)

01:33























rainbow stripe swimsuit - Minga London
Screaming Diva sunglasses - Quay Australia
unicorn backpack - Skinnydip London

I know in the musical Hamilton the lyric goes "there's nothing like summer in the city" but honestly, does anything really compare to the seaside on a hot day? Especially a seaside as pretty as Brighton. Spurred on by tradition as well as the amazing weather England has had lately, me and my girl squad decided to take a fairly spontaneous trip down to the beautiful town yesterday and we had the best time ever. Our day was spent relaxing on the stony beach, trawling through colourful vintage clothing, flying through the sunny sky on pier rides and eating delicious iced treats in the cutest pastel ice cream parlour (vegan friendly cherry cola sorbet, anyone?). I also finally had the opportunity to bust out my new favourite piece of swimwear from Minga London which, if you know me and my blog at all, you'll see why I'm so obsessed with it. I've been coveting this beauty for honestly about a year now so when it came back into stock last month I had to have it. It's bright, rainbow and totally magical - a bit like Brighton itself really.

My favorite...oooh, just put the macaron on top of the gelato and I'd be in heaven. heehee... I adore that swimsuit....rainbows...my favorite color. Was that a thrift store you were at? Dang, I never see pretty pink things in the ones I go to.
