Margate Travel Diaries ~ Embroidery at Dreamland

What do you do when you are running around like headless chickens and need a little down time? Be very British and Keep Calm and Cup of Tea On? Or jump in the car for a little staycation in your own country? Well, this weekend we decided to do both and once fuelled up on a few cups of PG, off we headed to the English seaside town of Margate. First up… all the fun of the fair

Dreamland in Margate has been on our radar for a few years but until now we’ve never been able to fit in a trip.

Until NOW.

A couple of hours drive from London out to the Kent seaside and you’ll find this traditional English amusement park a stone’s throw from the sandy beach and quaint little town. We dare you not to have a smile on your face as you wander around the fair: a riot of colour and all the nostalgic rides you’ll remember from your childhood had us gurning like 5 year olds.

Did we also mention the multiple Instagrammable opportunities? Yeah, there are quite a few of those too. Big wheel, check. Giant donut cushions, check. Cute confectionary props, check.

Scream if you wanna go faster.

Can we also just mention these embroidered cotton pieces. We stumbled across both of them while sheltering from the rain last week and loved the boho vibe and the amazing price tag and snapped them up quicker then how fast we consumed our fish & chips at Dreamland, and that was pretty quick.

This pink blouse has literally ALL the elements that we love {pink, embroidery, blouson sleeves… c’mon} and the monochrome cutwork of this dress plus the super flattering shape makes it one of our current faves. The best bit? Both are under £25!
