Whitstable wishes

Whitstable, Whitstable, Whitstable how you always manage to steal my seaside heart time and time again. The Cinnamon Slipper is no stranger to Whitstable getting featured, this must possibly be my 4th or 5th outfit/lifestyle post here. My bestie Sandy and I try to meet up as much as we can and this time we decided on something different. It usually involves shopping around London town and hitting Ed's diner for milkshakes and a natter (See here for our last visit!) but Sandy has never been to Kent so I took her in my car on a little roadtrip to Whitstable. We got there quite late in the afternoon and the fish and chip shop I planned on taking her to was closed and the other chippy closed at 4pm! Why Whitstable, why?
I think my favourite trend of 2013/2014 has to have been the tartan phase. I've always been a massive lover of tartan and when Mod Dolly announced they were having a sale in the new year I just prayed that some of their tartan dresses might be in the mix. When I saw this smock dress in the sale for such an amazing price I knew I had to snap it up right away.

I simply adore peter pan collars- (what's there not to love about them? ) and smock style dresses are the most flattering shape for us pear shaped girlies. I have simply fallen in love with my new Luna Moon necklace that Jonathan bought me from Tatty Devine. It was such a magical surprise he gave me the other week and I've already worn it 4 times since. I first saw it on the lovely Kristabel back in December when she was wearing it at the Bath blogger meet up and I was just fell in love with it.

Without a doubt the best shop in Whitstable that I always love wandering around in has to be The Whiting Post. This shop blows my mind every time with its beautiful displays, stunning dresses and fantastic merchandise. I tried on the most stunning Bernie Dexter dress that I was so very tempted to buy and might just have to on the next pay day.
