Gone to the Beach : w/ Octer

Words: @oliverinstead • Photos: David

Following the commencement of autumn, I shared a few tips on shopping knitwear for autumn/winter in last week’s post (read here), but for me, summer is simply whenever the sun shines, whatever the weatherman dictates. So when it appeared a little sunnier last week, I threw on my stripes & sandals and headed to the Ainsdale Dunes…


dsc_0922 sandal-post-4If there is one thing that screams summer more than stripes, it’s sandals. Although IIRC this is the first time I’ve worn sandals in an outfit post, which is a shame because the Asian in me does enjoy a bit of ventilation in my footwear but since sandal season is so hard to come by in the UK, I don’t own too many pairs of those.

These Kurt Geiger leather sandals were gifted by my friends at Octer, who very graciously offered me the opportunity to test out their awesome one-stop website which houses all a number of my fav brands under one roof. From tech to travel gear, you can shop pretty much anything you can think of on Octer. Too many tabs open while you’re online Christmas shopping? No more. Already, I can tell Octer will be my go-to when it comes time to buying gifts for my friends and loved ones.

    Love your outfit – my chap wears sandals often so I’ll ask him if he likes these – I’ll have a look at Octer as he’s a smart dresser.
    your post has also reminded me I need to go back to ainsdale beach as I’ve not been for years – and being at the beach anytime is good especially if it’s sunny.
    Have a great weekend love bec xx

    I love your style! As it is getting colder and colder where I am, I am secretly jealous that you’re going to the beach! By the way, the quality of the pictures are amazing! Shout out to your photographer
