We all have childhood memories of going to the beach. Growing up in Kent, I was lucky enough to be about an hour to most of England's south east beaches. I remember as a kid going to Whitstable beach eating cockles and ocean pinkies. Hastings was a favourite of mine because of the crazy golf course. Then there was Dymchurch where I recall spending all day in the amusement park. Camber Sands was also always one of my favourites, although there isn't too much to keep you entertained, it does have an incredible beach and sand dunes that you can roll down and play hide-n-seek in...ohhhh I wish I was young again!
With Summer officially ending the chances of getting a hot, cloud free day to head to the beach is going to get harder so on this sunny Monday morning Rebecca and I headed down to do this photoshoot. Camber Sands is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from London, so a little bit of a journey but well worth it.
Camber Sands has a vast sandy beach and at low tide the water is so far out making the beach seem much larger. Lining the beach are some amazing picturesque sand dunes, a seemingly perfect place for the locals to grab their metal detectors and start searching for lost engagement rings and other lost personal treasures. Im guessing the local job market isn't that great.
In this Camber Sands, outfit of the day I have kept things pretty simple with a pair of cropped skinny jeans with extreme rips in a light brown colour and white tee both from ASOS. As the jeans are cropped, they are perfect to be worn with a pair of white trainers or even flip-flops. These Adidas trainers in white and gold are from resole.co.uk my first point of call when I'm looking for some sneakers at a good price. To finish off the look I have accessorised with some Ray-Ban sunglasses that I got from the opticians and experts in eyewear David Clulow who have stores all over the UK and only offer the best designer frames. Finally, I'm a massive fan of watches that are slim and not too bulky and recently Rotary have designed their slimmest design ever which I managed to get my hands on. The design is classic with a white background and gold details and when you put it on it just moulds to your wrist. Being ultra slim in design you barely feel like you are wearing a watch.
