Lobster Chic – Ripped Shorts and Crochet Top

The lobster was dead but somehow wouldn’t stop jumping around my plate. The metal tweezers that we were supposed to use to cut its pincers open, kept slipping and having missed the dark red shell, would almost take my fingers off. The few times I had had lobster before it had always been opened and all I had had to do was fish out the little squidgy pieces of light pink rubbery flesh out of the hard shell…My best ffriend Laura was having similar trouble her end. The loster almost defeated us, but then we decided…if we were to do this (and boy we were starving as it took ages for us to find a parking spot), all etiquette would have to fly out of the window. Once we had decided on that, things went better. Although pieces of lobster flew across the square, most got caught between the metal objects and we would clench our fists and give off  grunts, like those of tennis players, straining to find a last ounce of strength. It was when Laura started using her hands to claw the flesh out of the little cracks in the shell that the waiter decided to stop hovering around our table and leave us to our own shameful devices. The destruction left on the table was truely the sign of a great meal 🙂




I went to Collioure with my best friend from high school, Laura. We have known each other since we were 9 years old and although we don’t see each other that often we always speak on Skype and catching up is always so much fun 🙂 Having eaten the most amazing sea food, we then walked around lovely Collioure. It was still really hot here and people were swimming despite it being Autum. I decided to wear short denim ripped shorts and a white summer top which I tucked into my shorts for our trip here. I really like the simple detail of the top and I find that all crochet tops just so perfect for the sea. It was a casual day by the sea and so I bought a canvas Che Guevara Bag and beaded flip flops for a sophisticated smart beach town look. Laura wore a black dress which she dressed down and accessorized with a brown belt, a bright pink handbag and feather earrings. Here are some of the pictures that we took around the fauvist’s stomping ground. Let me know what you think? 🙂

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration.
