Yesterday I escaped from the city for a little sea air and to catch a performance of the Producers in Brighton. This seaside town on the South East coast of England is just a short hop from London and a great way to get out the city for a day.
It’s quite a large town as far as seaside towns go in the UK so there is plenty to do. I had great fun looking at the fantastic array of vintage clothing shops and cute little market stalls. The food and drink offerings are plentiful, and if you are vegetarian, gluten free or vegan this town definitely caters for you! I don’t think I have seen so many gluten free and vegan places in one town before. Both the cake and fish and chips (from a great little food pub called the Fish Bowl just behind the seafront) I had were gluten free and were both thoroughly delicious.
I passed on the fair-ground rides of Brighton’s impressive pier and sat looking at the fantastic colour of the ocean. While I suspect if you tried to go in at this time of year you would die of hyperthermia it is stunning to just sit and look at. There are plenty of food offerings on the promenade so you can get that all important ice-cream easily! There are also deck chairs to hire available.
As for my outfit I kept it simple and practical. These preppy New Balance trainers are great for walking around all day in, and they are super chic as well. The fact that all the colour combinations in the NB 410 range are taken from US college track and field teams gives them a great retro look. I love the colour of this pair but there are plenty of options available so check out their range (here). I styled them with a simple jeans and tee combo and add a fitted camel coat, my tan Russell & Bromley tote, and, of course, Ray-Bans!
I had a great day and thoroughly recommend Brighton as a day trip destination, especially for any Londoners looking for a bit of fresh air and change of scenery. I have made a mental note to do this more often this Summer. And the Producers was amazing – go see it!
