I travelled out in this Boden black linen shirt-waister, with black leggings and a large but very fine purple pashmina that packs into the smallest space. The dress has four button-down pockets that are just the thing for safe ticket storage.
It is such a useful and comfortable dress that I have it in this other colourway.
Downside, it's linen, it creases.
On December 3rd I hit the beach in a cheap and cheerful collection of purple clothing.
Bikini from George at Asda
Cardi from M&S
Cotton wrap a present from Africa
Beaded sandals from Duo.
