Sundowner: styling a striped maxi-length wrap dress with a felt fedora and boho accessories

This was a photoshoot that almost didn't happen, dear readers...and what a shame that would have been!!

Like any good little blogging team, Robin and I pretty much always take our camera with us when we're on the road over the weekend, ready to document my outfit-of-the-day.  We'd indulged in our customary bit of shopping this afternoon and then a much rarer dinner out...where we made the decision to end the day with a sunset visit to our favourite beach.

Our toes were in the sand, the light was just about perfect...and then we realized that I'd left the camera's memory card lying on our kitchen counter!!  (Insert expletive of choice!!)  Nothing to do but hop back in the car and find somewhere to buy another one...with fingers tightly crossed that we'd make it back before the sun disappeared into the ocean.

As you can see, we did it!!  We haven't been to the beach all that often in the past few years - ever since we created a private getaway for ourselves on our balcony terrace - so it was a real treat to breathe in some salty air and get up close and personal with the expansiveness that is the seaside sky at night.  Especially when it puts on this kind of a stunning display!!  🌅

    1. We were actually kind of doubtful that we'd make it back to the beach in time, dear Dawn...but I'm so glad we tried, because the pics turned out beautifully!! :)

  2. I love that dress. I have become obsessed with stripes in the past three or four years. The detail in the back is a surprise and it's gorgeous!

    Having just returned from a beach vacation, I am envying you the beach sunsets. Glad you were able to get that memory card on time for these photos! I neglected to get some good sunset photos on vacation this week and when I finally had the time to take some, it rained! I got some great sunrise photos early in the week though.

    1. Oh my gosh...aren't stripes the BEST, dear Rachel?? Definitely my favourite pattern!! And I'm sorry that you missed out on your own beach sunset pics...but if you captured the sunrise, you're one up on me, 'cause I'm never awake that early!! :D
