I'm guesting over at First Impressions, where you can read my murmurings on landscape and style blogging. Check it out!

The title, like last time I wore this dress by the sea, is from T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock."

No puedo decidir qué es más lindo de tus fotos! el vestido, el collar, la playa...
Aunque admito que me da algo de frío, se ve algo oscuro el paisaje, pero está fantástico :)

NOs vemos linda!

I love the detailing on that dress, so pretty.

What a pretty dress! It looks magical.

And I'm sure you don't know this, but mermaids are the favorite icon of people like me. Growing up, we idolize them. Nobody is really sure why transgendered children are attracted to mermaids but we are.

Just came back from reading your guest post. I like how you recreated Maria's outfit with a summertime feel. I'm quite enamored with all the details on this dress. And I find it sweetly reminiscent of late Victorian and Edwardian swimwear - lacking the bloomers, of course, but who really wants to swim in those anyway? ;)

what a dress. the vintagey details and buttons are too charming. the beach was made for this dress.

Catita said...

that is a great necklace!

Jennyboo said...

I love this so much! Your dress is pretty much my dream dress. Buttons and lace detailing get me every time. Going over to check out the post now :-)

Ashley said...

I am really mesmerized by the sea and the sky in these pics, and how they are a great contrast to your bright red dress!!!

Want to be near beach. USA is in grip of heatwave.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@A: Europe is pretty chilly this summer actually. I expect a few people would trade you!

Anthea said...

Raquel said...

Ohh so nice to see you at the beach with that lovely dress!! I can't believe I still didn't go to the beach here (to actually swim, because I went on strolls) and I'm going back to London next week!! Must try to go at least to the river beach once before leaving!

Kara said...

Love this- the outfit is so cute and I love the beach. I've been obsessed with anchors lately, so the necklace is the icing on the cake!
