{mid-week musings & oceanside dreams}


. . . one of those impossibly busy weeks were the lists are a million miles long and inboxes are over over-flowing, but also, a feeling of excitement uncontained for new adventures to come -- so much so, that one must stop to catch a breath, and with recent talk of oceanview cottages and afternoons at the beach, in all this golden summer sunshine, one can not help but let thoughts drift, if only for a moment, to blue summer skies and open waters . . .

Umm, Roséline? You simply must stop with all of these great posts! I cannot get my work done because now I am daydreaming of a seaside cottage vacation and breezy days in the sun... my goodness, this post is wonderful! (I'm just teasing about the stopping bit) I think I have found THE suit for me—I have been looking for an elegant one-piece to suit my petite frame, red hair and fair skin... either one of these will be ideal... and I think I will order one for my Birthday—probably the Anthropologie one with the ruffles :)

Wishing you a lovely day...

xx, Sarah

I love the nautical theme in summertime - makes me feel closer to the ocean while I am stuck in the Midwest!
Much love,

So many goodies in this post. I seriously heart a stripe nautical top. I absolutely love gorjana jewelry and that halter ruffle swimsuit. =)

I am loving the last dress! Stripes aren't big enough that it's unflattering but big enough so you notice!

As always, a perfectly lovely post! I'm loving the gold rope bracelet, as well as the white polka blouse. Classic nautical - one can never go wrong.
