has everyone seen the beautiful John Lewis advert?
her outfit whilst riding the bicycle must instantly be recreated!!
Needless to say I loved the show, she has long since been a favourite of mine. The show was lovely (I'm not sure my beau would agree) and the weather was wonderful for a day by the sea!
After visiting the exhibition we went for a wonder round the old town, there was lots of vintage shops but unfortunately nothing for my dwindling finances. The soldier found an American airforce uniform in one shop which naturally ended up coming home with us but nothing for me!
we found a cannon on top of a hill so did some posing. I wore my new-to-me blue gingham circle skirt, white boat neck top, black cardigan, black ballet pumps, my favourite straw hat and 1950s ceramic forget-me-not broach. I'm so in love with my new skirt, I've hardly taken it off since I got it, it also has a matching sun top and you all know how much I love a two piece!
Heres my beau doing his best cannon fire pose! silly billy!
posing on the cannon, who knew large guns could make such good accessories!
By this time after all that sea air,posing and walking we were in desperate need of a cream tea, so on the recommendation of a local shop owner we made our way to the Walpole Bay Hotel.
Overall we had a truely wonderful day which really was exactly what we both needed! When we got home we went to see Lawless which is AMAZING! if you haven't seen it, do! it doesn't disappoint!
how have you all spent your weekends?
Love Hollie xx
we were unsure if to give it a go or not when we saw the £17.50 entry fee but upon asking for armed forces discount the kind lady let us both in for the bargin price of £7.00 (so many perks to having a soldier for a sweetheart)
Inside the museum everything was a bit old and scruffy and if I'm honest we would of been quite disapointed had we paid £35 entry for us both but it did a certain charm and there were some lovely things on display like this Christmas cabinet which did nothing to calm my already stirring Christmas excitement!
|My beau was equally excited when he found this Battle dress in the dressing up section which just so happened to be badged as Royal Engineers! His excitment continued when we found a section dedicated to the R.E, his favourite part was this photo of a sapper who was just 17!!|
