When The Ocean Meets The Sky

I'll admit it, right now I have more coats than necessary in my wardrobe. But well, anyone who has more than one coat probably has more than "necessary," my wardrobe certainly isn't an example of minimalism. Anyway, a very basic black coat was missing from my collection. I'm so glad I found this one because I think it looks so lovely with my vintage, teal hat.

I find grey days like this one quite fascinating. At heart I would love everyday to be summer and to sit on my front porch drinking lemonade, but variety is what makes life interesting...and there's something very fascinating about days where the separation between ocean and sky is nearly invisible. It's almost as if you could dive into either and disappear into somewhere else entirely.

  5. Where the separation of ocean and sky is invisible... it sounds like the perfect location to be at this moment. A windswept beach and a single, lonely pier.

    In a coat and vintage hat.

    I envy you. We're about to be buried by snow. Though, with this Noreaster, I imagine you will be, too.

  7. @Style and coffee, I remember those days! Don't worry, soon enough you'll make your own money & be able to spend it how you wish. My first job in high school was such a great liberator. :)

  8. Love the jacket, it was totally necessary. I live in AZ where I can use jackets about 3 months out of the year, but I still have too many, so you aren't alone :)
    Your booties are adorable, too!

  9. I only have one coat, and it's three years old at this point! It's my own fault though, I hate spending money on coats because I feel like I can get so much else for the price of one...Not to mention, I am sooo picky about them! I will push myself to get another one next year, though.

    I really love your black coat! Id love to have one just like it :)

  10. Everything about this is brilliant. I have been eyeing up every single coat at asos, and like you - I have way more than I need in my wardrobe, but you have inspired me! A girl can never have too many coats, right? ;) I love where you live..all the pictures always look so lovely. Hope you are having a wonderful week Rebecca :)

  11. I wish I lived by the ocean, even on grey days it looks so magestic. The colour scheme of this shoot really sets your hair on fire!!

  12. I love my black coat, it's just classic.

  13. what a beautiful location for your photos!

  14. Those sparkly tights are so glam! I just wanted to let you know that I am so inspired by all of your posts. It makes me so happy to see you staying true to your individual style and dressing up beautifully every day even though you live in a rural area. I live in the woods in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and always get the funniest looks when I go out of the house wearing skirts and dresses, but I don't feel myself when I'm wearing jeans, so I'm going to take inspiration from wonderful ladies like you and keep dressing the way that makes me happy.
    This dock is beautiful. Your photos always radiate such a peaceful feeling!

  15. So true! But in my case it's never enough. Coats are my favourite, and they became a dress for me, because sometimes is so cold, even inside, that I don't take them of.
    Love the shoots, that withe background looks so good.

  16. Those tights look like you have a small star system on your legs, it's lovely hehe.
    Also, I've really been into hats this season. Love them!

  17. I love that hat! Such a great colour!!
    I wouldn't worry too much about having too many coats... seriously, winter is so blah, how can anyone have too many cute coats!!!

  18. I never fail to be amazed by your photographs, especially because you take them yourself! I am fascinated by grey days too, the colourlessness of it all is really quite strange.

    Love the hat!

  19. I just love how your beret pops against the rest of the outfit and contrasts with your stunning hair.

  22. I like your vintage hat. I'm almost surprised you didn't have simple plain black coat.

  25. I love how for the first photo, the railing cuts the ocean from the sky just perfectly!

  26. Good gosh, I have wayyy to many coats as well! I needed to stop myself today from buying a grey coat since my collection is getting out of hand. I'm always horrible with getting rid of clothes...I get attached to just about everything!

  29. i sooOo love your coat!=)

    Hopefully I would be able to wear one soon. I have always dreamt of the winter season and all those winter outfits. Living in a tropical country doesn't permit me to experience one but by the end of February I'll be going in Korea and I'm hoping that there's still some snow over there.
