One of the best things about moving to our forever house in Kent is the fact we are so close to the beach. Even on a cold, winter day like this, where the mist rolled in and made visibility poor, there’s a magic and calmness that just makes everything better. There is, however, a challenge though to loving the beach in winter, what to wear. I’m known for loving winter layers and country casuals, but sometimes you just want to wear something fun, yet still warm – so let me present you with my go-to colourful winter beach style.

I was told once by an editor when I was an intern (many moons ago) that when it comes to leopard print you have to treat it like black and that’s really stuck with me. It sounds kind of wrong doesn’t it, but I do feel that when you think of leopard print as a neutral, rather than a print in your wardrobe it makes it easier to style and less likely that the animal print will appear trashy. I love how leopard print has that ability to upgrade any look, add a pair of animal print boots to a
