The day we went to Pendennis Castle (built by Henry VIII, no less!) in Falmouth on our Cornwall holiday was yet another hot and windy day, so it was cool cotton and a hat all the way for me. I'm not adverse to knotting the front of my shirt when the temperatures rise (leaving your shirt out looks untidy and tucking it in makes me even hotter) - I even tucked the collars under to create a v-neck. Simple tricks like these make your pieces even more versatile and make them go from this style of shirt (worn in May) to the style I've worn here.
And so ends the series of outfits from my holiday - a whole month after we went! We haven't had quite as much sunshine in the UK as we had that week, so we definitely picked the week to go, weather-wise.
Do you have any tricks that you use to make pieces more versatile? I've not tried wearing a v-neck cardigan backwards or wearing a maxi skirt as a strapless dress before, but perhaps you have... I'd love to hear your tips and tricks in the comments!
P.S. Castles make great backdrops for outfit shoots. I'd recommend a day out at a castle not just for the exploring aspect but also for the endless photo opportunities...!
