Lunch in Brighton and My Weekend

Yesterday hubby and I decided to take a drive out and we ended up in Brighton.
It was such a lovely hot day and we managed to pack in a lot, starting off with lunch at an Italian restaurant with a view of the beach and seafront, before a gentle stroll along the beach, stopping to listen to the music playing, people watching and soaking up the sun.
When the weather gets sunnier, it's nicer to wear clothes that match the style and feel of the surroundings. 
We then to took a drive to Shoreham, which is where the RNLI are based and we saw up close how big the lifeboats are.
Then we took a leisurely countryside drive and ended up at Denbies Wine Estate, the largest Vineyard in England. We had a lovely look around, had a sample of their Rose and White wines and then we headed off home.
I decided to wear my Traffic People pink silk flapper style dress, which was one of my 40th birthday presents that I hadn't worn yet. I also wore my Topshop biker denim jacket with the Union jack detail on the back, also something I hadn't worn since buying.

On Brighton seafront, it was a glorious sunny day and I didn't need my jacket-I hope we see more of this lovely weather this week!!


Today we went to the boot sale which was very windy-again. I picked up a lovely tan leather vintage jacket-Starsky and Hutch style, but it has been snatched by my eldest-we are both the same size-he loves a bit of vintage too and he looks great in it!

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead and hope you're having a great weekend too!

You look beautiful in that dress. There must have been a real North/South divide with the weather this weekend as it's been blinking freezing here.
How lovely to be on the beach in Brighton, I'm very envious. xxx

What a wonderful way to spend a day. I enjoyed hearing about it. The dress--just too, too beautiful. And HOW I love the lines on the back of that jacket! The contrast of dress and jacket style made for a great combination, in my opinion!

Lovely day, lovely outfit Sharon. That pink dress is gorgeous on you. You look stunning. I also have Brighton envy but sadly it takes two and half hours of tedious driving from our place.
