{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 . . .

    You not only have an excellent eye but also a viewpoint ala Lauren I enjoy. Eye candy and inspiration packaged beautifully.

  • 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.


  • gorgeous post! i especially love the bracelet. exploring their site is probably going to result in money spent haha.

  • Gorgeous post!

  • Beautiful items..the lanita bow with anchor button adorable.. the R.L. scarf an absolute must, I am a Lauren gal…

  • wow what a lovely post! The rope bracelet is outstanding!

  • LOVE everything nautical, especially that Philip Lim swimsuit and the Breton top… Amazing selection as always :)

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


  • oh, beautiful seaside inspiration. these are all so beautiful. i love the first photo. the simplicity of it. i wish i could get my hair to look like that.

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

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

  • 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
