On the Sea







Every once in a while I like to match my clothes perfectly. I usually like to put things together that complement each other on the color wheel, or just in terms of patterns or textures. I also enjoy a good juxtaposition (You should stick around for tomorrow's outfit post for the perfect example!)
This outfit made me feel so prim and proper. It reminds me of a sailor outfit, but less literal and with just an allusion to the maritime style. 

I was inspired by the little walk I took with my mom by the beach today. It was such a beautiful day, and we wanted to get a little pleasant exercise in, so it seemed appropriate. I'll leave you with a poem and a few snapshots from our walk together :]

On the Sea [By John Keats]
It keeps eternal whisperings around 
    Desolate shores, and with its mighty swell 
    Gluts twice ten thousand Caverns, till the spell 
Of Hecate leaves them their old shadowy sound. 
Often 'tis in such gentle temper found, 
    That scarcely will the very smallest shell 
    Be moved for days from where it sometime fell. 
When last the winds of Heaven were unbound. 
Oh, ye! who have your eyeballs vexed and tired, 
    Feast them upon the wideness of the Sea; 
        Oh ye! whose ears are dinned with uproar rude, 
    Or fed too much with cloying melody--- 
        Sit ye near some old Cavern's Mouth and brood, 
Until ye start, as if the sea nymphs quired!
