The Lonely Sea And The Sky

I think I'd enjoy living on the water...like in a houseboat, but only for about a year. It wouldn't be on the ocean (or Puget Sound as pictured below). Instead, I would live on a river. Then, if I ever had to escape the long arm of the law, I would pull up my anchor and let the current tow me away...

  2. I was actually *just* having a conversation with my boyfriend over how nice it would be to live in a boat over the summer. Then we realized that neither of us know how to even drive a boat. Ha!

    You're looking adorable as always.

    Happy New Year!

  5. I agree with Jennine--this is a really sophisticated look, but I love it on you. It's been wonderful to see your style evolve and grow, but still remain you.

    (That shot with the water moving is brilliant.)

  25. That's seriously kind of creepy. My grandma JUST read that poem to me for the first time this morning then I come to your blog and you quote it. xD
    I'd love to do the same only the waves give me a stomach ache. The idea is lovely though. As is your outfit, as usual. :)

    ReplyDelete

  43. love your outfit, i'm insanely jealous of that bag and your tights especially. i don't think i could ever live on the water but the idea of an adventure anytime sure is nice.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Living on a boat would give you the perfect opportunity to pull out all of the nautical inspired clothing.

    I love your bag and the color on it, its soo pretty.

  45. Love this post. I like the idea of living on a river. You should read 'Fevre Dream' if you ever get a chance. It's a legit vampire novel about boating on the mississippi.

    Anyways, love those tights, and mad props to your daddy for the scarf.

    You live in such a pretty part of the world.

  54. I've always wanted to live on a houseboat too, maybe one day....

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh yeah, live in a river would be aweome. Much better than live in the ocean, more quiet I think. here in chile, in the south are a lot of people who lives in the water, they built their houses on stick in the seashore.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like that this home would have a contingency plan come hard times! hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  57. i love your hair worn up! you look so happy, too. i spent a few days on a boat and decided i really want to decorate one and sail around with my boy & my cat. you'd be surprised how nimble cats are on water vessels!

    ps. this post reminds me of the smog son bathysphere...one of my favorites

  79. I'm really digging the military/drummer inspired coats going on out there right now.

    I can't believe how incredible your sceneries are. I'd totally do the houseboat thing, but I think I'd like to cruise the coastlines and just check out foreign cultures.

  80. the pictures are beautiful!
    im loving the bag

  83. If you want to live on a houseboat on a river, you should come to the Netherlands. I actually know a student from my school who lives on a houseboat. From what I know, it's pretty cool :)

    I absolutely love that bag. I need one just like that, but I am too picky when it comes to bags, there are just too many styles I don't like and I am not a bagperson in general.

    ReplyDelete
  84. i remember wanting to live in a boat for a while when i was a kid! there's something so freeing about being able to just move whenever you wanted and not be tied down to one place (: i love your jacket, tights and shoes! you look great as always!

  93. My boyfriend bought a small house boat 2 years ago for just that reason. I was SO excited. He sold it within 2 weeks because he was too seasick to sleep on it. :( He crushed my summer dreams.

  98. i love the black military jacket from h&m. this is an awesome outfit. well done!

    ReplyDelete
  99. living in seattle, its surprising the number of people i know who live on boats (some on legit house boats, others on actual boats). i guess water does surround the city, and in some cases its much cheaper to live on the water instead of the land. i fantasize about it too.

    i love how you matched the gold hues of the scarf with the gold accents in your outfit. i like to do this with all black outfits at well.

    ReplyDelete
  100. and just why might a nice girl like you need, to escape from the law??? hehehe makes me very curious ;D

    love the outfit! and your gif. i've decided to dub you "the gif master" (picture that being said in an echo-y, athoritative voice)

  107. Living by the water has so many different moods. It's lovely to look out across the sea (or the Sound) on a grey winter's day, and despite the open space, you feel incredibly close to you own thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love houseboats!! Whenever I get to go to a harbor that has houseboats, I always gravitate towards them because they're just so... magical! It's the perfect little hobby home with lots of room for randomness and creativity! *sigh :)

    ReplyDelete
  109. Your outdoor shots, angles, colors, outfits and words have such an amazing presence. You blog is immaculately designed and your voice is so uniquely your own. Lovely lovely lovely.

  117. I've always wanted to live in a houseboat for a while. Not forever... But at least a vacation! The phrase "long arm of the law" needs to be used much more frequently. Love this outfit and the scenery. I can't wait to visit the Northwest.
