nautical top, casual chic outfit

The first time I saw the ocean I was 26 years old. I’d seen different seas (The Mediterranean, Aegean, Black, Red etc) before but not the ocean. It is still feels a bit strange that now, in Sydney, we live so close to the ocean. It takes a only few minutes to make it to the beach when before I could only see it on TV. Every weekend, if the weather allows, that’s where you can find us. Even if it’s just for a short walk with a chai in hand to see the waves and get recharged from the ocean.

At the moment it’s warm but still not quite summer, so for such walks along the beach I usually wear rolled up jeans and a nautical top. It is comfortable, which is exactly what you need for unrestricted movement (handy if you’re accompanied by a hyper-active toddler) yet still precise enough so you don’t look too casual. Because geographically, beaches are a part of Sydney and you never know what’s going to happen next.

    I love stripes, so love this!! I love the ocean, I lived too far from it when I lived in America, we just had lakes. So, coming here and being able to drive a short way to get to it, is always so refreshing. I go there when everything is clogging up my brain waves!! You look darling xxx
