Beside the seaside

*insert stereotypical line about going to the seaside, British weather, blah blah blah* What a way to start a blog post, if that hasn't enticed you to read more i don't know what will.. 
On Tuesday i hopped on a train, waved goodbye to the shard and ended up at the beach, otherwise known as what is becoming an annual summer trip to Brighton. (Although it was a little less "hop on train" and more "train was cancelled on the way out and 3 hours to get home" but that's besides the point, i must've hopped at some point. Anyway without any further ramblings, here's my day in pictures.

Like every time i take a day trip i had researched restaurants in advance, and had decided on The Breakfast Club; anywhere that serves breakfast food all day is my type of gaff so that was our first port of call. This place is a must visit if you're in Brighton, and fond of both breakfast foods and cool interiors. The owner wanted to create a Miami vice kind of style and they definitely nailed it, that wood panelling made me feel like i was in 1984 and i didn't hate it, quite the opposite actually, i love somewhere that has a clear image behind it. Also the food is pretty damn good too and the staff were lovely, which is probably the thing i should've started off with but you know interiors, instagram, all of that.

After being filled to the brim with an all American breakfast we headed out into the lanes for a little walk around, this is my *second* favourite part of Brighton, and i'm 99% sure that's down to the little flag bunting - i'm easily swayed. The lanes also have some really great shops, lots of little independent boutiques but also things like SpaceNK if you're looking to splash some cash on a beauty purchase while by the sea.

As it got to about midday it did really feel like we were walking around the actual fires of hell, so we decided to retreat to Brighton Pier and get a little bit more of a sea breeze. The Pier is my favourite spot in Brighton, you know the ice cream signs have been there years and everything is just classic British seaside. Although this hasn't stopped me constantly wondering if i could fall into the sea at any given moment in time, every time i step foot onto the pier.

My outfit:



My outfit pretty much sums up my UK summer wardrobe, anyone who can dress up in the heat i applaud you but it's just not for me. If i had the choice my summer uniform would be my current outfit of pyjama shorts and a 3 year old harry potter T-shirt, but that isn't quite "outside of the house appropriate" so i'll stick to a top tucked into a skirt for now.

Does anyone else get an uncomfortable feeling in their stomach when they see the weight of the rides and what they're being supported by? No? Just me then..

Ah here i am, surrounded by so many attractions.. the pier, the pavilion, and i take a photo on a metal chair. #Goals.

Ice cream was available there and you'll be happy to know i made use of it, but i didn't get a photo because it seemed to disappear quite quickly into my stomach. All of the photos in the line above are quite a random collection but they show everything i love about the pier, with the bright colours and the fonts.

Finally we have the pavilion. It's really weird in a nice way when you come across the pavilion, because you're on a normal shopping street and all of a sudden theres this huge ex royal residence that looks like it's come straight out of India. I've never been inside so i can't say whether that's a must do or not but i would say go and visit the grounds just for a look around, you can't go to Brighton and miss it.

  11. I always seemed to pick the days that it would rain in Brighton, which really put me off going there (plus trains are a nightmare) but this makes me want to give it a second chance! That pavilion looks amazing!
