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!
What I wore: Mango slub t-shirt* | Primark striped skirt (gift from Mum) | Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses (via very.co.uk) | Cambridge Satchel (via Urban Outfitters) | Essie nail polish in Forever Young | Boden beach towel* | panic-bought flip flops from 99p shop on Camden High St!
