Margate Travel Diary ~ Floral Fancies & Gelato

We’d like to think we are pretty positive and optimistic so while the British weather isn’t looking so rosy, Summer is not over just yet. There’s still a few weeks of summertime and don’t they usually forecast an Indian Summer right about now? With that in mind we are sharing our last looks from our little trip to Margate. It seems every other blogger under the sun is sharing photos of Positano we are keeping things real and very, very British.

Seems like these looks are like an age old love story: boy meets girl, but in our book it’s a bit more the other way round. A lot girly with a little boyish styling.

We love nothing more than getting dolled up: a good little frock, high heels and a bold lippy but these days especially our daytime attire is a little more girly with a boyish twist. While we are not saying that we have a masculine style, hells no, we like to embrace our feminine side, we just like to tone it down with something manly in our look. If you’ve followed us for a while you will know this is probably our no.1 style rule. We can’t keep the ruffles, the pink or the laciness at bay but we will always tone down a look with something boyish. These looks for example, perfect for a day trip and the trainers are not only super practical {makes sprinting to the gelato shop sooooo much easier} but for us make a good balance of a feminine & masculine mix.

Sartorial juxtaposition if you like.

And just when you think “WTF hold on girls you are getting a bit heavy on us” here’s a list of our top spots in Margate, especially for the delicious gelato we were forced to consume purely for the taking of these photos. Forced we tell you.

Melt Gelato When we say the portions are generous we mean it and that is certainly not a bad thing in our book. We sampled delicious flavours in a classic cone but you can pimp your’s up with 100’s & 1000’s and other toppings for a mooch along the sand. Alternatively sit in the cute cafe and get your gelato on top of a waffle which we’ll be doing next time we visit!

Ziggy’s Rooftop Bar If you are looking for a drink with a view then this is your place. So close to the beach and to Dreamland too, sit on the colourful rooftop bar & watch the sunset with drink in hand. Perfect.

Dreamland You may have seen our post here that showed you Dreamland in all its vibrant, fun glory. If you go to Margate you basically HAVE to visit, its practically obligatory.

The Bus Cafe A stone’s throw to the sea and a good cup of tea too. The novelty factor of a converted bus is pretty cute too.

Happy Summer everyone! Whether you are at home or away, make the most of the long days and bare legs and good excuse to eat ice cream.
