OOTD - The Penarth edition

Penarth Pier is my most favourite place in the entire world. The very first time I went there it was 5am, freezing cold and all I did was sit on a bench and watch my husband fish. I watched the sun come up and people moving around on the promenade and it was completely magical. My husband and I somehow ended up going back every year always around the time of our anniversary of becoming a couple. Three years to the day that we had our very first smooch we were sitting on our favourite bench drinking tea out of polystyrene cups and having a blissful moment when my husband proposed to me. Penarth is so special to me and I love it with all my heart.

Because I am ever so clever, I forgot my contact lens solution and case over the weekend so on Saturday morning we had to locate a chemist in Swindon. After we had done so and were in the car my husband suggested we made a little detour to Penarth seeing as it was 'only' an hour and a half away.

It's not a terribly inspiring outfit due to my thinking that we were just popping out to get my contact lens bits then going straight back to the hotel to go for a swim! Fortunately I found the cream flower brooch in the glove compartment (I knew my laziness would come in handy one day...), the leopard bow headband was in my handbag and the one and only piece of make up I had with me was my Rockalily Hot Rod Red lipstick! It doubled up as a lip stain and a blusher :)

No Penarth visit is complete without a massive hot chocolate. (Not entirely sure what's happening with my fringe here...)

One of the things I love most about Penarth Pier is that it has these plaques all down one side. There must be over one hundred of them and most of them in memory of loved ones or events. This is my most favourite one though.

I love it's mystery, although I have a few dreamy and romantic theories as to what it means. Maybe a young woman met a young man and they had an evening of flirtation and magic but for some tragic reason they could never be together!

Mr D and I picked up our form for our very own plaque and sent it off this evening. We're not going to tell anyone what it says though, we kept it mysterious!
