Summer Style | Multi-Coloured Patterned Top, Distressed Denim, Panama Hat

Summer style | Multi-coloured patterned top, distressed boyfriend jeans, Panama hat
Last week I went to the Eden Project in Cornwall (home of the artificial Mediterranean and tropical biodomes and all-round fabulous place to visit) to see Paloma Faith play live at the Eden Sessions courtesy of ASUS UK. I'll be writing about that separately (oh wow was it good), but meantime this is what I wore for a day's sightseeing: Walking, eating, photographing and general touristy stuff.

I thought a little bit of multicoloured florals would be apt, so I went with my Warehouse patterned top (a touch of the 80s, no?) and distressed jeans with comfy flats and a Panama. The tropical biodome always gets really hot once you go up high. We went a couple of years ago and I wore this outfit so I knew the jeans would be a little unwise, but at least they had some ventilation and were a loose fit. You do see people people in skinny jeans who start to look unbearably hot halfway up :(

Are you planning any tourist breaks close to home this summer - if so, where? I'd love to know what's local to you...!

    1. Oh Jodie no - remember it's nothing to do with age! Your reasons for not wearing distressed denim (or anything, for that matter) should be that you just don't like it, or it doesn't suit you, or you're not comfortable in it... but not age!! But I'm sure you probably know that already being a regular reader of my blog :))

      But thank you - so glad you liked the fedora and top! xx

  3. The print and the colours of the top are perfectly suited to the tropical biodome. You look like an exotic flower!

    I bet Eden is looking wonderful at the moment. We went there about 6 years ago in Spring when all the tulips were out and oh my, what a wonderful sight it was to behold. I hope one day to go again. It's such an extraordinary place along with the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

  4. Catherine I love this colorful and artsy top, the hat and cool shoes are perfect for sightseeing. I too am a fan of distressed ripped denim, heck I have ripped some even more! Sounds like a fun time. We are going to a cabin in the woods in Asheville a 1.5 hour drive to stay for a get away!

    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!

  10. Love this effortlessly chic look... looking perfectly 'thrown together' is a real skill. I love a distressed jean, so unexpected on the over 40's, and very cool. Bravo!

    1. You're probably getting to know by now that the over 40/age appropriate thing doesn't make a blind jot of difference to my wardrobe, Samantha...!! Thank you my lovely x

  11. Lovely top! Perfect for the occasion. I've never been to the Eden Project but I hope to one day as it looks amazing. With the school Summer holidays fast approaching I have a feeling I'll be visiting a few local attractions here in the North West soon. Anywhere outdoors is fine by me, just as long as a play barn isn't involved!

    1. Well I'm in just the next county (Devon), Emma, so you'd think it was really close to me but it's not! It's still best part of two hours drive so I can only imagine how long it would take from anywhere north of Oxford...! But saying that don't let it put you off, it's such a unique place and breathtakingly beautiful.

      Thank you my lovely xx
