When I was 14 (or 15, somewhere around that age) I was invited by my school to go on a surfing holiday to Cornwall because I was such a good student, with great attendance. If that doesn’t give you a glimpse of what I was like at school, I don’t know what does but it was a great opportunity and I spent an amazing week with some of my friends who were also selected in Bude, in Cornwall doing all sorts of activities including rock climbing, abseiling, orienteering, wind-surfing and surfing as well as having BBQ’s and sing-a-longs around the campfire under a vast expanse of inky darkness and more stars than I’ve ever seen before in my life. I have very fond memories from that trip and I’d love to go back to Cornwall as an adult and visit the gorgeous beaches and who knows? Maybe even hop back on a surf board for old times sake.
Surf fashion is always something I’ve loved and I used to have a selection of clothes from Roxy, including the comfiest dress I have ever owned which stayed in my wardrobe until it was literally on it’s last thread. It killed me getting rid of that dress! If I lived by the sea, you can bet your bottom dollar that I’d be rocking all the floral, comfortable and super swishy surf fashion I could find! With that in mind, today’s post is sponsored by Ann’s Cottage, a surf shop for Women, Men and children’s surf fashion, including wet-suits, boards and all the equipment you need for your perfect surfing holiday. And here’s what’s on my Ann’s Cottage wish-list!
1. Hype Fade Clouds Pom Backpack – £25.00
Every day at the beach – especially if you’re doing activities like surfing – needs a decent backpack which is comfortable and keeps everything you need in! I absolutely love this cute, pastel one!
2. Billabong Turnaway Dress in Green – £43.00
I love these super swishy dresses; they are so comfortable and perfect for a surfing trip!
3. Converse One Star OX Shoes in Rose and White – £48.00
Any activity type holiday requires really comfortable shoes and you can’t go wrong with Converse. I’ve fallen in love with these pink and white ones!
4. RVCA Heated Shorts in Blue – £40.00
Perfect for when you’ve finished surfing to pop and want to just chill on the beach! I love the super surfy print on these ones.
5. Born by the Sea Women’s Sweatshirt in Blue – £30.00
I absolutely adore this sweatshirt, especially the design on the front! Perfect for popping on a bit later in the day when it starts to get a bit chilly.
6. Joma Jewellery Aloha Bracelet in Silver – £15.99
I love this cute little Aloha flower bracelet! Perfect addition to any surf fashion.
7. Oakley Rose Gold and Brown Feedback Sunglasses – £130.00
You can’t go on a surfing trip without the perfect pair of sunglasses and although Oakley are a little pricey, you’re getting what you’re paying for. I love aviators, they’re my favourite style so I’d love to wear these!
8. O’Neill Rev Highneck Swimsuit – £59.00
This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful swimsuits I’ve ever seen! You’ll need a swimsuit for when you want a dip in the sea and I’ve love to rock up in this one!
