Great Waves Looked Over Others Coming In

The waves have been rather more wild and untamed than usual down by the shore lately. I've found myself trotting into the wake more than once to chase down a purse that was getting swept out to sea (thankfully I never can seem to remember to carry my phone, so nothing was damaged). The crashing waves certainly made for some good pictures though and I decided to share a few "accidental" gifs which show some of the sea's energy on this day. I have a hard time making gifs just showing the wind or the waves because I tend to move (awkwardly) around in the picture-taking process.

This dress I received from Lulu*s might be my perfect little black dress. It's velvet, which I have repeatedly stated that I love, but what I really like about it is the shape. It skims the figure without being clingy and doesn't need a belt or anything else to make it look nice. I think it's going to be the perfect dress to reach for when I don't know what I want to wear and don't want to make a lot of effort.

  1. I love your animated gifs! I don't think I know too many bloggers who do that with their photos. You take a lot of time with yours, and that just proves dedication! I like the sleeves on your black dress, too.

  2. I love the way you styled the velvet dress with the jacket - it looks more casual and less formal that you'd expect of a velvet dress. Beautiful!

    I love the shape and styling of this dress ~ the sleeves are perfect, and the slimline shape is a different, but really nice look.

    I hope your purse doesn't accidentally get swept out to sea!
