Seen Reclining On An Ocean Swell


As you might be able to tell from the water marks on my tights, I fell into the Sound while taking these pictures. The soles of secondhand shoes are not the best for adventuring. I am beginning to sense a pattern here where I wear inadvisable shoes out and about, but I refuse to dress like many Northwesterners who look like they can leave their coffee shops to go hike a mountain. It's been awhile since I seriously injured myself, so I think I'm doing just fine.

  1. Gorgeous ring! On the subject of ill-advised shoes, I broke my toe this past fall. When I had healed a good bit, my doctor told me I could start wearing real shoes again... then looked at the ballet flat on my good foot, and sniffed, "But NOT little slippers."

    Too bad, doc. Little slippers weren't the cause of my toe dilemma, so why should they be punished?

  7. Wearing sensible shoes is one of those things I have a hard time bringing myself to do sometimes! But if your feet are going to get wet, at least it's in a romantic setting like the Sound, right?

  9. Haha I completely agree! I hate it when I see women in business suits wearing trainers - I don't care if they're practicaly and comfy, they look UGLY! You look splendid here though, I love all the tones of blue.

  10. You're so funny and charming to tell us about falling into the water! I think it makes your outfit even more adorable and sweet. And it's already so adorable with all the sweet color coordinating and the beautiful print on the dress!

  13. Sublime dress! I love how your outfits are often colourful whithout seeming trashy or over bright.The little jacket is so cute too.
    Plus I think the lake is my favourite backdrop for your photos.

  16. You look great! And I agree, I'm so over the super-casualness of the Pacific Northwest. It's honestly frustrating at times.

  21. I've been developing a collection of cute shoes with PNW appropriate soles. It's a slow process because there aren't a lot of rubbery soled shoes that are cute, but my leather soled shoes made me fall down some stairs my first year of college in the PNW so I had to find an alternative.

  23. I don't know why but I can't see your photos :(

  32. i love this! i hope it the water wasn't too cold!
    your jacket is perfect and i love the tights, they are the perfect color for your skin-tone!
    i also like how you wear things multiple times.
    yes, we've seen this dress a lot before,
    but each time it looks brand-new.
    you show how real people dress, that's what i love about your style!

  33. Beauty knows no pain. I'm from the Northwest, and I was shocked by the ubiquitous forest fashion when I went back after many years. Paris fashion was interesting, but don't get me started on the waiter that tried to tip our table over....

  34. I love this necklace you are wearing! So cute :)
