The Scilly Isles in a Kate Spade Dress

Whilst on the Scilly Isles, we decided to do a mini photo shoot in one of my favourite places - Pentle Bay on Tresco, and I wore a Kate Spade dress.  I can't get enough of Kate Spade - their dresses, handbags, shoes and jewellery are always the most marvellous colours.  I love the jewel tones, and with a few geometric patterns thrown in and a touch of sparkle to add - I always feel like a small child in a sweet shop when I enter a Kate Spade shop, there are just so many exciting things.  I often go in and try things on - they really do know how to cut a dress properly, and once on, each dress feels as though it was made just for you.We cycled down to the beach and I did a hasty change in the sand dunes and we took some photos.  I really like the bright pink of the dress against the calm tones of the sea, sky and sand.Dress, Kate Spade - similar here; Ring, Oliver Bonas; Nail Polish, Barry M.Photographs taken by Sarah Bray and Emily Bray.Alice xxxIMG_6241 IMG_6243 IMG_6247 IMG_6260IMG_6270IMG_6263 IMG_0061 IMG_0063 IMG_0064 IMG_0065 IMG_0071IMG_6237

The Sea

Today we went to Pentle Bay and went hunting for cowrie shells.  I think what I love most about Tresco is always being close to the sea ⚓️.  There is nothing better than a wander along a beach with the smell of salt in the air, listening to the sound of the sea, watching the waves and looking out to the horizon .  I love the way the light changes the colour of the water, sometimes a bright turquoise, other times almost silver, and often a deep angry blue.  I like the play of the sky, the land and the sea, and how they are sometimes in start contrast, and other times in complete harmony with each other.Tresco has white sand beaches, with translucent water and the weather changes often, and it is a wonderful place to see these beautiful arrangements of light and colour.  The beach is often deserted (I think most people are happily in their cottages, in no hurry to meet the rain), but if you do venture out, I think it is one of the best places to spend a very happy morning or afternoon.(And we did find two cowrie shells 🐚🐚 ☺️)Alice xxxIMG_8104
