Long Tall Sally weekend outfit #StyleHasNoRules

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Long Tall Sally. They have a new campaign where they found 80% of children wear what makes them happy, but for some reason as adults we don't feel this way. They got a group of 6-8 year olds to style some adults and the results were so cute! Check it out here

In the spirit of this, I chose an outfit I think my 8 year old self would have picked. I was mad into the Spice Girls when I was 8 and would wear anything denim. I often dressed as sporty spice in leggings and a crop top, and would try to steal anything faux fur to be scary spice. This weekend I went to Point Clear in Essex to a family beach house and decided to dress in my 90s favourites

I chose a denim button through midi dress - £65 and the Sash leather slip on sandals - £35. The relaxed but flattering dress is made of a super soft denim (trust me, my post-prosecco nap was very comfortable) and has a drawstring waist and pockets! It reaches my calves but has a cheeky little split to the knee which makes it modern and gorgeous. Plus the adjustable straps allow you to make as much cleavage as you want. 

The sandals were also really comfortable. The large soft band of leather was really comfortable for wondering on the beach with Teddy dog.

I think 8 year old me would have liked this outfit - cool enough to look like a trendy adult who knew what they were doing, but fun enough to feel like I was in Spice Girls or B*Witched! Maybe even Misteeq.

Having a weekend away in the beach house with little to do except hanging out with family and drinking prosecco is the dream. We've not done much, but sometimes doing nothing at the weekend in different surroundings is exactly what I need to do!

Sadly today is back to real life and work, but I'm going to try and make the most of lying in a different bed in the morning, walking on the beach and staring out the window at the sea!
