beach

Sea air, matted hair and rusty railway tracks...

Sunday, June 27, 2010
























Dress: Zara, jacket:Topshop, gold chain necklace: Topshop, brogues: Topshop, sunglasses: Primark, pink flower ring: Topshop, daisy ring: Pilgrim.

These photos were taken a few weeks ago when Dave and I headed to the coast yet again for another weekend. We explored a different beach and found these old railway tracks running through the sand dunes, I thought it would make an excellent spot for photos. Then we came across this mini waterfall from a stream that meandered down to the beach, so of course i had to climb up, wreck my shoes, dirty my dress to get a photo!
This was one of the dresses Dave got my for my birthday months ago and I have worn it to death! It has a slight turn up sleeve and an elastic waist band which to me makes it effortless to wear. Im a sucker for anything nautical so the stripes and gold buttons won me over.

  51. The sceneries are awesome! It looks untouched, the first pic is my fave! You look like a goddess conquering the universe :)

    Btw, I wear my glasses with prescription too, been wearing glasses since high school and then contacts when I started earning money! In most cases I do wear my contact lens but during spring/ summer seasons, I have to wear glasses due to hayfever :(

    I got mine at Vision Express, the brand is Gio-Goi, they have variety of colours too :) I tried the wayfarer but it doesn't fit me, I look hideous haha!
