Kahlil Gibran once said, "In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans." 
There's something so soothing and mysterious about the ocean; the colors and textures beautifully melding sea and sand to create a consistent yet watery chaos. It's no wonder that we find ourselves there to think, dream and play. 

Thinking about summertime's swift arrival has my mind out to sea..daydreams of sunshine, crystal blue water, starfish, seashells, and not a care in the world. My wardrobe has suddenly found itself in shades of sea, adorned in nautical and ocean-inspired motifs. 

Perhaps its the frequent trips to the shoreline to catch the sun's brilliant departure as it leaves the world in a blaze of color, or maybe the sudden spike in temperatures that has me thinking about making everyday a beach day...regardless, I'm planning on being near the water as. much. as. possible. this summer. Mermaids, I just might come join you.

I love this white outfit paired with some blues. And the ocean really is great, isn't it? I don't live anywhere near the ocean, but one day I will. This post reminds me of that one song, called "all at sea". It's so peaceful!
