With a Visit to the Kite Festival!

Today was truly incredible! I’ve known about the Tip Top Kite Festival for months -I’ve circled it on my calender and have been talking about it non-stop! Finally, today was the day. We drove to New Brighton beach, and walked towards the pier. We spent most of our time gazing at the skies marvelling at the oversized kites! It was amazing how huge they were – and even more noticable as we walked underneath them! There were aliens, whales, and tigers, but my absolute favourite were the macaw (parrots)! Though small, they darted about incredibly swiftly, and were amazing shades of red and yellow!

New Brighton is a notoriously windy location, so I wore a vintage 80s playsuit, to prepare for any potential upskirting opportunities! My clogs were Lotta From Stockholm, and the socks courtesy of Foot Traffic. I scooped my hair into a beehive, and polished off a 60s-esque look with ASOS cat eye sunglasses. Perfect!

  8. How magical that must have been! I suppose if a “kite day” can exist in Marry Poppins why can it not happen in real life? Your outfit seems perfect too for such a day. Thumbs up for everything.
