My lover stands on golden sand, and watches the ships that go sailing.

Were you getting bored of endless shots of my radiator? I thought I'd take Friday Frocks on location this week, to not-so-sunny Exmouth.

I took a week off and visited the West Country a couple of weeks ago to hang out with my lovely friend Pam (featured below) and Hayley. We took a daytrip to Exmouth to relive some old times - Pam and I went to uni there, so this cheesy little seaside town holds some good memories for us. It was a lush day - the weather was somewhat mixed but we pranced about on the beach, played in the arcade and finished up with cocktails.

And, of course, we squeezed in a little photoshoot. I picked up this dress in the Debenhams sale a couple of months ago (if I read back through my outfit posts, it's striking how many of my clothes were bought in the sale. I think this is how I justify my addiction...). It's a good style and length - one that I've worn to work, for daytime dressing and even out partying. It sits in the 'occasions' section of my wardrobe that most other girls would place 'jeans-and-a-nice-top'.

Pam took these photos for me, and as soon as I relinquished control of the camera I realised how incredibly awkward it made me feel. So, not as poised as usual, but who wants poised all the time?

Dress: Red Herring at Debenhams
Boots & Gloves: New Look
Coat: Primark
Hat: Topshop
Necklace: Dorothy Perkins

Also, check this out. Ever wondered what a rainstorm looks like from the other side of the water?



  1. Oooh that is a pretty little dress.

    That last photo is AMAZING!!! I have never seen that before. 'Photograph a rainstorm from the other side of the water' is now on my 'do before I die' list.

  2. A day on the beach followed by cocktails?! Sounds amazing...regardless of the rainstorm!


  3. Love that dress, I always find that Red Herring have looooads of decent stuff in sales! Adore the pictures of you jumping in the sand :)

  4. Apparently there's a great big Debenhams sale on this weekend... Not that I'm encouraging you to buy more dresses of course.
