It's that time again for another Style In Your City, which showcases your life and creates a community celebrating all the things you love about where you live. I think this is definitely my favourite image from Instagram from the last fortnight due to breathtaking views captured by Amanda. My post pick was by Marmalade Pie, I really loved hearing how this link up inspired Lizzie to pick up her camera and see her city through fresh eyes, even in the rain.
I have had a few people ask me whether they can join in with this link up even if they don't live in a city, so to embrace the wild and prove that even nature has it's own amazing style I thought I would share a glimpse of Island life.

At the weekend we made the drive north and over to the west coast of Wales, Anglesey to be precise, which is a little Island just off the northern most tip. Paul used to holiday here as a child and now that he has family living there, we thought it would be good to show F.
The weather was bit of a wash out, with lashings of rain and gales hitting the island, but thankfully it stopped long enough for us to explore Newborough beach. I love the sea, with many of mychildhood summer days spent at my nanna's house across from the beach, for me it always brings strong feelings of nostalgia and I love seeing F on the sand.
I spent my time combing the shore for shells and playing tag with the waves as they rolled in, while Paul tried to teach F how to skim stones. For me this weather worn landscape is beautiful, the way paths are woven in the dunes, the tall pines that grow right up onto the sand, even damaged trees ruined by a storm have a wonderful architectural feel as they jut of the sand.
So how does it work?
We would love it if you wanted to link up and join in with 'Style in your City'.
