I Heart Margate
Oh Margate, I sparkly-pink-heart-emoji you. Your cute little vintage shops, shiny new modern art museum and of course, Dreamland makes me feel just like that; being in a dream, a makebelieve land that I quite happily won’t wake up from. Now I know, I’m totally jumping on the London to Margate band wagon (well let’s say hour and a half long train) what with Betty Magazine, TimeOut and Stylist all hailing it as the new weekend getaway destination in good old Blighty. But stereotyping and cynicism aside, it genuinely is a great place to visit for everyone, offering up everything from blue sea to blue sky.
I’ll be doing a whole post on Dreamland but first, here’s where my Blogging pals Kristabel and Kim spent our morning. If you’re taking a trip then take time to explore shops around the little old streets like Breuer & Dawson, art and design shops like Lombard Street Gallery and interiors like Etcetera. Grab a hip lunch in Roost and head to the Grayson Perry exhibition. It’s a must see.
As for my outfit, I couldn’t resist wearing this flirty a-line dress from ASOS in the hope that colourful Margate would come forward with some strong backdrops (it did!) the bag had to be done, it’s the seaside, Love! And these slip-on mules cemented a retro vibe. Stay tuned for a super sweet Dreamland outfit!
