Who goes straight to a bar without having a shower, washing their face and putting some proper underwear (i.e. not a lycra, sand-filled swimming cossie) on after being at the beach all day?
So, I've never needed one of these amazing "hardworking-capsule-wardrobe" pieces that works with a swimsuit and flip flops, just as well as with a pair of cut off denims and a vest top, and is equally as lovely with an evening gown and a clutch.
I just saw this little baby on the Ted Baker website and look...
- it will work amazingly with a flirty little swimsuit, some metallic wedges, some fifties sunnies and a floppy sun hat round the pool
- it will dress up a pair of beach shorts, some strappy sandals and a straw bag for a "where shall we go tonight" discussion in a bar (there's your "beach to bar"
- it will look lovely and dressy with a cute little shift dress, some peep toes and some bling for when it's a bit chilly at night
- it will keep my neck snuggly warm on the way home on the sh!tty RyanAir plane when I convert it in to Scarf Mode.
So there you go. All of a sudden I'm a capsule-wardrobe-aficionado. Amazing.
Now, the only issue is how to style it out when I rock up at a beautiful restaurant and I lift an arm and dump a pocket of sand on the fish course...
