Outfit Pick: UK beach babe
Last week Naomi asked me to find her a beach outfit for the UK which is very different to your sarongs, bikinis and fake tan combos on your foreign beach holiday.I must admit finding a chunky knit in April was a toughie so I cheated and you can't actually buy the cardigan in the pic although I've included the link. Hunt down a cheapie at charity shops or snap up this cosy looking one I found on eBay.
A proper arran knit is essential for that maritime look and goes great with a pair of shorts. Printed wellies are a bit naff now, and this nice yellow pair remind me of fishermen, wear them with some long socks for warmth worn scrunched down the leg. To carry on the seafaring theme wear a stripy tee and carry a string and stripe shopper for all your beach essentials.
