My Own Private Ocean

Skirt - Modcloth
Blouse - Valley Girl
Shoes - I Love Billy
On our first morning we awoke early to walk along the beach across the road from our beach house. I wanted to explore the rock pools at low tide and got very excited when I saw dolphins swimming nearby! Further into the ocean we could see humpback whales swimming with their calves beside them.

The beach where we're staying is a national park, so it is a wild beach and is very quiet with few people around; with exception of the fishermen and the pelicans who flock to them we have had the beach to ourselves most days. Here there is nothing around for miles except for a small convenience store ten minutes down the road. The nearest town is a twenty minute drive through the bush with nothing more than a small pub and a motel.

As you can see, I packed pretty casually for this holiday! The reason I don't wear separates often is because I have a hard time shopping for things that match, but I think I am getting much better at it, tempting as it is to just buy dresses all the time.

  4. What a beautiful beach, I thought it looked like a New South Wales beach! It must be so lovely to have it all to yourself to enjoy, and how wonderful that you saw both dolphins and Humpback whales. I've been seeing a lot around the beaches where I live lately. Gorgeous skirt and blouse too - perfect for the beach!

  7. Darling marine life frolicking in the background, a sublimely serene beach, and the cutest sailboat print skirt ever, talk about the kind of post that makes me smile and yearn to visit the sea again. You really look beautiful, honey - I'd go so far as to say angelic even, thanks to the abundance of white and the soft, warm lighting in all of these great photos.

  16. Sounds like a perfect morning :) I used tp have exactly same looking summer umbrella, but I sold it, too bad as I have had only one photo shoot with it, long time before I started blogging. Your post reminded me about it :) I love your fresh and simple but still sofisticated look :)
