Holiday Week – The Maxi Dress

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion, Travel.


We spent the last day of our holiday on the beach. As we’d stayed inland for the rest of the week, it was nice to take a drive (albeit quite a scary one on the wrong side of the road!) to the coast and soak up the sun, sand and spray.

For our beach jaunt, I wore a maxi dress which is probably not the most practical attire for splashing about in water and then trailing through sand. But this Gap version is made with the most beautiful lightweight jersey – so easy to fling on, really quick to dry and doubles up as an excellent pillow when you’re lazing in the sand.


It was quite windy at the beach (hence the cardigan), so obviously I made that classic British-person-abroad mistake of thinking the sun wasn’t very strong and baring my shoulders to all and sundry. Which led to some lovely red sunburn. WILL WE EVER LEARN?


After a good few drinks in the beach bar and a couple of hours watching kite surfers brave the Atlantic, we dusted off our sandy feet and headed for the airport. Rob actually brought most of the beach back to Leeds with him after burying himself in the sand (lol, men). Such fun!

That was going to be the end of holiday week, but after sharing these photos a few of you have asked about the place we went and where we stayed, so I’ll be back on Sunday with another post about our location and the beautiful villa we stayed in. See you all then!

I’ve been living vicariously through you, while you were frolicking on the beach, I’ve been here in not so sunny leicester, but thankyou for taking us on holiday with you! I love the maxi dress on you!
