Wonderful Whitstable

Greetings from Whitstable, a delightful traditional seaside town on the Kent coast.

Looking rather nautical by the harbour! Wearing my sailor top by Marilla Walker, Irish linen trousers by Simplicity K1620 (to be posted) and ‘cornflower blue’ shoes by Hotter (made in Britain).

Looks like a Pirate ship – is Jack Sparrow on board? Eye, Eye, Captain!

There are Oyster bars everywhere.

A beach front row of terraced houses painted in pretty colours – charming.

The Morris Dancers were entertaining and fun to watch. The chap wearing a dress, apron and shower cap was most amusing!

Dancing ladies. Liked their colourful costumes and swishing skirts.

More Morris Dancers, wearing jingly bells and waving handkerchiefs.

My day was made complete by discovering The Fabric Shop in Harbour Street and I bought some gorgeous knit fabric.

It was a great day out!

    Modern fashion designers need to take note of these styles – specially the men. So flamboyant! They put the modern man in the pale!
