Show Blackpool some love!

Top: Topshop // Shorts: Forever 21 // Shoes: Topshop // Jacket: Boohoo // Sunglasses: Topshop

Cartwheeling round the beach, building sandcastles and listen to some absolute tunes with some of my favourite people, that is what summer is about.

We headed off to Blackpool with no plans other than to enjoy ourselves. 
It was so fun to run around a beach feeling like my inner 5 year old, I was having a good time so I honestly couldn't care less. The 4 of us spent ventured up onto the pier after a few hours of the beach, straight after eating an ice cream we decided to go on the Waltzers. I tell you now, don't do it.
For years I've loved rides but this experience was one to put you off for life...
To sum it up, we were all nearly on the verge of tears, I thought I was going to faint and the controller of the ride thought it was funny to spin us faster. 
Don't do it.

The classic rainbow of British seaside colours is definitely something I unintentionally matched my outfit with. With temperatures finally soaring into the 20's, wearing shorts is becoming a common occurrence and it makes me so happy! The British summer is definitely a hit or miss but so far we're doing pretty good, please don't rain!
I opted for a fun nautical outfit and fit right in...

I don't think Blackpool deserves the negativity it gets. Of course some bits aren't the best but everywhere has the good and the bad, ignore the media and show Blackpool some love!

  3. I've heard the stereotypes of Blackpool before but gosh, you make it sound amazing, Lucy. Unintentionally matching with the weather/view is sometimes the best thing that can happen, innit? Gorgeous photographs, Lucy! x

    1. Blackpool is hardly as bad as it seems, it certainly isn't a beautiful beach you'd find in Spain but its not all that bad!

  5. Love this! I shot outfit photos in Blackpool just last night - it's such a good backdrop haha. I've had a similar waltzer experience, why do the controllers think it's so hilarious to spin you faster? I don't get it!
    Some parts of Blackpool aren't the greatest but hey, it's pretty cute too :D

    1. It really is! The typical seaside town is perfect apart from the waltzers, I have no idea why they do it but I really don't appreciate it!
