‘With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on earth on you live’ – Sylvia Earle
Sun’s Out…Sun’s In again! Unfortunately, we can’t control the British weather but we can control how we feel this summer. Whilst it may not always be possible to shed too much clothing in this unpredictable climate, layering up is a good way to brave the elements! A maxi dress and cardigan is a great way to make sure you are prepared for whatever the UK weather has in store and what better way to accessorise than with a layered up jewellery look too. Introducing you to Eos, our new minimalist collection that is perfectly suited to layering and stacking. The Eos Halo Necklace and Eos Bar Necklace work really well when worn together or two Eos Halo or Bar necklaces worn at different heights mixing up the metal finishes with one silver and one yellow gold vermeil. The Eos ring also looks particularly gorgeous stacked with our iconic Tulipa ring.
If dainty isn’t your ‘thing’, take a look at our popular new hoop earrings. Like every Pureshore design, each one incorporates a small shimmering diamond – we’ve had some fab feedback so far including ‘lend themselves perfectly to a laid back boho vibe with a sundress and pumps’ and ‘provide instant glamour to a t-shirt and jeans’.
When I chat to my girlfriends recently it does seem like many of us have lost our mojo over the past eighteen months. Missing friends and family and not having an excuse to dress up and go out has taken its toll and left many of us feeling deflated. Now is the time to change that!! Put on your favourite dress/jeans/blazer and all your bling and get out there again – even if it’s just to pop to the shops for a pint of milk, you never know who you might see!
On a separate note, we were thrilled recently, to see that one of our favourite beaches and cafés, The Hive in Burton Bradstock, Dorset was featured in the Daily Mail’s Finest Coastal Cafes. We love to head there for a delicious breakfast on a sunny morning with a view overlooking the majestic Jurassic Coast. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-9655035/The-UKs-finest-coastal-cafes-Cornwall-Scotland.html If you’re down that way at any point this summer, why not look them up. Close by too, sitting high above Burton Bradstock beach is the delightful Seaside Boarding House where we have enjoyed many a sundowner!
With a maximum of 70 miles between us and the sea anywhere in the UK, it won’t be difficult for most of us to visit a UK coastal resort at some point over this coming summer. Particularly as it’s so difficult to get anywhere else at the moment! We shouldn’t underestimate the beauty of our coastlines, we have such varied scenery here in the UK and perhaps it’s time to explore what is sitting on our doorstep. Ben has just enjoyed some time on the stunningly beautiful North Norfolk Coast and I’m hoping to head to Dorset, Devon and Cornwall for some R&R this summer. If like us, you’re a dog lover, there’s usually a beach within a short distance of the main beach that is dog friendly all year round. With our latest furry addition to the Pureshore Team, we will be looking to visit as many of them as we can in the coming months!!
