Gloomy Day at the Beach

Dress: Vintage, Swellegant Sweater: Thrift Shoes: Vintage

My boyfriend and I snapped these pictures really quick right before work and let me tell you, the beach was a disaster. The holiday weekend really took it's tole, there was trash everywhere. There was even a garbage truck on the beach. I will  never understand why people feel it is so hard to carry their trash to the trash can. You came to the beach to enjoy the beauty of it, yet you leave it a mess. I will never understand some people.

That's it for my ranting for the day.

This is one of my favorite vintage dresses. The print is so colorful and unique, the skirt has small pleating detail, and it fits me perfectly. A girl can't ask for anything more.

Wow. I tried to snap a couple of pics for an outfit post before work today but it ended up 8 AM awful. Nothing like this one. Whatever is going on outside the frame, these shots look beach perfect :-)

Love your dress - great shape and the colour is to die for :-)

Alice said...

This is perfectly cute! I absolutely love how the shoes match your pretty dress!

Kelly Lauren said...

yeah, it makes me sad when there's so much trash in a certain pretty place... like when we've gone camping and there's trash everywhere but trashcans just a walk away?! you're here to enjoy nature but you're basically saying you don't care about it... /end rant!

That cardigan and dress are so perfect with those shoes - love the last photo of you looking back! so classic and adorable. =)

Kelly Lauren said...

oh, how could I forget that BAG!? loves it.

Lies said...

Littering is definitely not cool. That dress looks perfect on you, especially with that white cardigan! Fabulous!

Jolly Josi said...

That dress is lovely !

the style crusader said...

Meg said...

Wow, this really is just a gorgeous outfit. I love it, a lot.

Roo Paprika said...

The shoes are beautiful. I am so saddened by people that litter, I collected as many plastic bottles as I could carry from a local beach yesterday and there were still so many many more

Becky said...

I'm loving your shoes!

pkjb said...

so so cute - love the floral dress and the espadrilles! ck :) x

OooKellyNicky said...

i think you countered the gloomy day in that beach with that wonderful vibrant outfit!!! love it!

Amanda said...

Ugh, I hate it when people do that. They are so excited and appreciative of when they go to things, but don't care at all once they leave it. Sad.

I love that dress and your shoes...I want to steal them haha.

amanda said...

love your dress!! you look absolutely lovely. and yes, it makes me super crazy mad when people throw their crap everywhere.

Mel said...

That dress is stunning! I love the color, and how you paired it with those espadrilles! Ugh that totally sucks about people trashing the beach. Some people have no consideration or appreciation for nature. They don't realize that one day beaches will be so badly polluted and no one will be able to clean up after them.

Sugar Kane said...

Awsome dress!
You look like a mad men character in the first pic!

Gracie said...

beeeeaaauuuttfiul dress!

holly said...

This is one of my most favorites of any dress I've see you wear yet! I am in love with that print.

soph (owl vs. dove) said...

These photos are just wonderful. That dress is just so lovely. Re: trash on the beach, I especially hate finding cigarette butts in the sand. Sometimes the lack of consideration in this world just amazes/appalls me.

shoeless simone said...

I hate when people litter at the beach! Especially when they purposely don't pick their stuff up, which is usually the case.
Anyways, this is such a pretty dress! Love the 50s feel

rebecca said...

Love those shoes - bet you collected a lot of sand in them :p

I'm purely in love with this dress! I can't get over how stunning it is.
Such a shame about the beach being wrecked though!

the Citizen Rosebud said...

I know, I know, I had said a couple of your posts ago that it was my favorite outfit on you. But, THIS is my favorite outfit on you. Beautiful. My fave.

Until tommorrow.

A Flourishing Perspective said...

Oh my goodness! Such an adorable outfit, and I love the setting of the pictures.

The dress, the belt, the jacket, the shoes, the bag, everything! is so lovely.

Love your blog and all the cute things you post.

Love,

You look so wonderful, dear. That color is really nice. I'm not a huge fan of orange, but that shade I would wear. Dark orange/brown is okay with me :) I'm sorry about the beach. I don't like the beach very much, the sand and I don't go together... But it saddens me to hear that the beach is so littered. Boo.

cuteee dress!
I like how the color works with your hair.

barefootandvintage said...

ah yes, very irritating indeed! i was at the beach on monday and witnessed several young children leaving empty water bottles and things behind...it was frustrating to say the least! my sentiments exactly...if you're there to enjoy the beauty of the beach the ocean, why are you littering it???

lovely dress. the color is great on you.

Dannie said...

i loove this look, perffect for summer
and your hair is perfection, it complements the look flawlessly ;)

reckless daughter said...

I love those shoes! so cute. Gloomy or not you look like a little ray of sunshine in these photos!

bestie said...

Ugh. Hate it when people don't care about things like that.

But anyway, you are looking pretty as ever in that dress! The print really is fantastic and you paired it perfectly with those cute espadrilles. (:

kelly ann said...

seeing garbage on the beach makes me SO upset! if i see trash, i'll pick it up and throw it away... it just makes me so angry. there are dumpsters and garbage cans EVERYWHERE, it's not that hard! throw your shit away, guys, it takes a few seconds. i've never understood that, either... the beach is glorious and beautiful and people mess it up with their laziness and lack of respect for the earth. UGH!

on a happier note - that dress is perfection. oh my, you look so pretty! :)

anni said...

love the sweater, it looks so cute on you :)

Trop Rouge said...

the dresses you wear inspire me to go for the prints!
You have such great taste

ady said...

ciao, perchè non mi invii le foto dei tuoi outfit così le pubblico sul mio blog?

Gela said...

argh, i really hate it when people litter. seriously, if you're just going to throw trash, throw it in the proper place. geez. it's really frustrating. :(

anyway, love your wedges!! it's like your blue one, right, but w/ a different design?

I can see why that dress is one of your favourites. It's such a great colour against the white and grey background too and it matches your shoes! Great outfit.

You really suit oranges and colours like that. Really beautiful look. Haha the minute your sun disappears ours comes out! If you want to compare, yours is out almost all the time so where does it leave ours ;). I'm flying to Los Angeles this August, do you have any tips? <3
