September sun

Outfit I wore on Mawgan Porth Beach: blue MANGO t-shirt, striped Primark pencil skirt, Cambridge Satchel

I pretty much always enjoy glorious sunshine on my birthday and this year was no exception.  The boy and I had an incredible mini-break in Cornwall and it was undoubtedly my best birthday ever (despite the death of my camera, RIP little Nikon D60!).  I was completely spoilt with perfect presents, drank champagne in a cliff-top hot tub at sunset, and had a delicious 3-course seafood dinner…but more on that later ;)

I’d bought a new dress for my special day but while I’d crossed my fingers for sun I hadn’t planned my ensemble around temperatures of 22°C; luckily I’d packed a spare outfit and stripes are always appropriate, especially for a day paddling in the sea and eating fish and chips on the sand (and yes, it’s yet another unintentional red, white and blue outfit and I even managed to wear another red, white and blue outfit to dinner! Seriously, I should win a prize for accidental patriotism).

I just want to add a quick thank you for all the birthday comments and tweets I had from you – they made my day that little bit more special and meant a lot!

    Ahhh how beautiful are your photos? I’m quite jealous – what a beautiful setting. I haven’t been back to Cornwall in a good few years now, I’ll need to change this and hopefully organise something next year with friends! You look lovely in your stripey and nautical attire!
