When Lomography asked me to write about fashion for my first article I had mixed emotions, the main feeling was “What on earth do I write about” because if you have seen any pics of me in my albums, or any of the pics from the Lomography x Rock My Wedding Photo shoot you will be quick to agree with me… I have NO sense of fashion! I was not to have this bring me down and I thought I would write about one of my favorite items of clothing and how it links to my amazing hometown of Poole!

My name is Mikey Davies, I am 18 and I am currently studying Music Production at college, I live at home with my family in Poole, and I was delighted when I was told I was able to write about Poole as a UK CitySlicker as it is one of my favorite places in the world! It is a town situated on the south coast of the UK which has a great history of Pirates and Smugglers! (cool huh?!) It is the second largest harbour in the world, (second to Sydney harbour in Australia!) and also has been voted the Best beach in the UK with Bournemouth Beach!

So what is their better than to wear to the best beach in the UK than a Hawaiian shirt! Every Christmas me and my uncles find the most outrageous Christmas jumpers and cardigans we can find and wear them out around the christmas period, as seen in the pic below!

But this year we have decided to collect outrageous shirts and wear them to the beach all summer also!

This is how I have decided to write about my new shirt, I bought it at a charity shop in Poole for £2.49 and I feel it was one of my favorite items of clothing I’ve ever bought! It is blue and it features small islands with palm trees on it and also small bales of turtles and schools of fish swimming around! The fact it is lightweight makes it perfect on its own for hot days on the beach, but also with a t shirt underneath it, it is perfect for those not-so-hot days! Here are some pics of my shirt!

Perfect to relax in the garden in!

So look out at my albums this summer, for pictures of outrageous shirts and brilliant beach snaps! if you have any pics of you in outrageous shirts, or just generally awesome shirts, please don’t hesitate to show me, I’d love to see them!
