She wants to go to the seaside..

Usually i like to inject a little Zen into my day, just simple things like reading my book under a tree or taking a walk in my local park after work (its so amazing it has to be one of the most magical places i know) but its not often i drive down to the beach after work so yesterday i did,

To start off its an amazing drive down the coast with all windows down, the wind whipping my hair and playing Fruit Bats up high on my cd player!! and then i set up my camera (after finding what i thought was a semi secluded spot) after taking a few shots before the sun set a random cute guy came running up to me out of nowhere (shirt off...gasp :) i was so mortified as i had just been posing like an idiot!! did i mention he was so so cute? anyway he asked me if i wanted him to help me take some photos...to which i then made a complete idiot of myself.... my face went bright red i started stuttering.. "no no thats fine..im just waiting for the sun to set...thats fine uh oh..umm thankyou but i wasnt taking photos of myself...why would i do that..hahhaha.." so then he gave me a weird grin and jogged off... and then i smacked myself in the forehead swore at myself and..yup sat on the sand to watch the sunset ALONE... i swear it sounds like the start to a romantic movie guy meets girl on beach guy offers to take pictures asks her out on a date they get married have children and lived happily ever after..instead its one extremely embarressed girl and her camera... it think im destined to be a lonely woman with 50 cats hahaha.

Well that was a long story..enough of that more about the outfit!! i found this Ivy dress on sale!! and its so beautiful to wear i feel so whimsical & pretty in it!! worn with vintage brown belt & Sportsgirl glasses.

Hope you all are having a fab week so far XX

your story made me laugh. been there, for sure. (but next time - let him take pictures for you! how often does a cute, shirtless man run down the beach and offer to photograph you? ok, probably more often in australia than in canada....but, still.)

by the way, i have the same sunglasses!

You look very beautiful in this amazing dress and belt. I noticed that you are doing a lot of the waist belt effect, which I would like to do more of but cant figure out if it looks right on me. Do you think some body types dont work with this trend? I have a small upper half with more curvy hips and thighs. I never seem to feel like I can make the waist belt thing work for me! help :)

Amazing. I live about 10 miles from the beach, but I never think to go. I think I might.

Funny story :) I'm always self-conscious of taking fashion photos outside for fear of a stranger gawking.

Gorgeous photos!
Also, I'm so glad that I'm not the only person who tends to make a fool of themselves (though I'm sure you weren't as silly as you think!). And maybe this is just the beginning of the rom-com movie, next time you might catch him off guard!

These photos are a dream. If your life was a romantic movie, I'm sure that this incident would the the "missed opportunity" and then you'd run into the guy soon in an unexpected place. So there's still hope! Anyway, these photos make me want to go to the beach, but right now they coast is all cyclonic so it wouldn't be as majestic as your photos!
