A Burgundy Dress & Sunsets At The Beach

(Dress – Similar, Sandals – Similar, Bag – Exact, Watch – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Bottle – Exact)

At the weekend I went to the beach for the evening with my boyfriend as it was really warm. We went to Burnham On Sea, which is a place I haven’t ever been before. The beaches I used to go to as a child were mainly Weston Super Mare and Weymouth, but even though Burnham is small, it’s really quiet and such a nice place to sit and relax. I’ve never really been on the beach while the sun was setting before either, but it was amazing. The colours that reflect off the ocean are so intense, it’s beautiful! We managed to get some really pretty photos while we were there, which you can see in this post.

I wore my Urban Outfitters Burgundy Dress, ASOS Sandals, my Daniel Wellington Watch, my Ray-Ban Aviators and various bracelets. I also wore my Hawthorn & Co. Neutral Cotton Satchel which I got given by the lovely founder of the brand, Amy, from Devon here in the UK. This was the bag that I took with me for my long trip through Paris and Italy last month and it was a life saver! I struggle so much with bags that are heavy before anything is put into them, but this doesn’t have any weight to it since it’s a canvas cotton material, plus it’s not too structured, so you can fit as much stuff into it that you want. It’s definitely a great bag for travelling with and since it’s neutral, it goes with anything!

I also wanted to talk about the glass bottle that I have here, it was sent to me by Equa Bottles to test out about 3 weeks ago and I have been using it everyday since. As you know, from my Q&A’s, I pretty much only drink water or fresh fruit smoothies due to having a sensitive bladder, so this reusable glass bottle has been perfect for me to put my water in. It’s got silicone around the bottom, so it doesn’t scratch surfaces or slip around easy, and it’s slimmer in the middle for better grip. The lid is metal and the glass is also free of any harmful chemicals, so your water just tastes like water, there’s no tainted chemical flavour. I am clumsy, so I am trying my hardest not to drop it and smash it, but so far so good! If you carry water around with you a lot, you might want to check out their collection as they have other designs too!

I have also included a couple of photos of my boyfriend on the beach because he’s wearing his Ray-Ban Aviators from Sunglasses Shop. He got sent these before we both went away to Italy, like I got my mirrored green ones I spoke about on Tuesday. The brown is a really versatile colour, which is what he wanted and they are unisex frames so the medium size fits both the women and men, so we both tend to share our aviators sometimes. Isn’t he adorable?! Anyway, I have included a video in this post from the beach, which you can watch below, but what do you think of my outfit and the photos? I would also love for you to let me know your thoughts on the Equa bottle if you have tried them before! Comment and let me know!

    I have a pair of new wayfarers which I love, and decided I wanted some aviators. I chose gunmetal grey, g-15 XLT, nice understated color, and not mirror lenses. But beyond being absolutely sure which color I wanted, I ended up being the Goldilocks of sunglasses. First I got the small 52mm aviators, which ended up being WAY too small for me. I learned the hard way that the mm sizes is not specifically the distance across your face, it’s the size of each lens. I have the 52mm in the new wayfarers which fit perfectly, so don’t let that lead you to a size in aviators, because the size doesn’t translate. So then I got the 55mm in the aviators and they were a tad snug on the side of my face. Then I ordered the 58mm. These seem to be the best choice for me and I realllly love them. They’re lightweight and comfortable.In the end, I learned the mm size will have a little to do with the distance across the face, being the lens get bigger, but it just wasn’t as cut and dry as I thought. It’s really best to try these on in person before ordering to know which size fits you best. Good luck!

    These glasses fit very well and feel really secure. They are very flattering. I wish the lenses were a little darker but that is my only criticism.

      I think they are actually quite dark! Depends on the light.
