Sweat, Tears and the Sea

Tuesday, August 7, 2018 3:30 AM

The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea. 

-Isak Dinesen

In my estimation, there are no truer words than the above quote, at least when it comes to state of mind. How good do we all feel after a solid workout, a good cry? For me it's the ocean that gives me all the feels. I am so happy near the ocean and I count my blessings that I am able to be so close.

Every summer I tend to try and incorporate more color in my wardrobe.  What I have found is the color I am most fond of in the summer months, is blue. So much blue! Is it the nautical feeling of being near the ocean, or just the closest color to black, I am not sure, but my closet this season has been overflowing with all shades of blue.

I also have dove deep into the wide leg pants trend, I want them all!
Such a comfy and casual trend.

Have you gotten on board?

  4. I have really been into blue and blues and whites in the summer lately. Especially with stripes. I just love that skirt and I have been seeing similar sandals everywhere (I need a pair!).


  5. The beach is seriously the best place. I'm a big blue lover over here too and wear it more than I realize. I love these pants on you! I almost thought it was a skirt at first. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  6. This is such a beautiful summer look! I really love anything blue colored all year round so this skirt is perfect to me! I love the shoes too !

  7. That's a lovely quote. It is beautiful and soothing by the water - and I'm sure I'd feel better if I went swimming once in a while. That waterfront setting is very pretty - I love seeing the beach-stairs, sand, kayak and dinghies or prams near the beach and small boat (Boston Whaler?) in the background - its a beautiful locale. You look to be in great shape, and gorgeous, as always. I like the blue on white print and wide-legged design of those classy summery looking trousers.

  12. Love that quote. It's so true. My teen daughter wanted pants like those so badly this year, but they were just way too long for her and couldn't really be hemmed. She had to find a slightly different version that were shorter. They look great on you though. Hey, I host a link up party every Wed, so if you're interested, you're welcome to stop by and link your posts.

  13. In love with these gorgeous pants! So perfect for a summer vacation!

  16. Blue has always been my favorite color! There's just something so calming and beautiful about it. I love the wide leg pants you are wearing! Since I'm short I have a hard time finding ones that fit me but the few pairs I have found I love. It's a nice alternative to the usual straight leg pants. And that quote it so true x
