A Dose of Vitamin SEA

A mini-vacay to enjoy another trip to the beach. Just what the doctor ordered: Vitamin Sea, sure makes me feel better during these times, an instant pick-me-up that lasts for days!

I wore this off-the-shoulder cotton knit top–blue and white looks beachy, cool and it’s comfortable. I saw it in a window display and it reminded me of a T-shirt that I tie-dyed myself in the ’60s except this one is more stylish and feminine. I love the off-the-shoulder style and that it’s long enough to wear with legging capris.

Have you heard the rule that if you wore it the first time it was in style, you shouldn’t wear it again? Well, I don’t believe that. In fact, that’s often what draws me to something, perhaps it’s nostalgia. Besides, I think tie-dye is timeless, don’t you?

Sandals are from Drizzle & Shine, my daughter’s eco-boutique in Seattle

  1. That is another gorgeous on you Carmen! The outfit definitely says that you are by the beach. The off-the-shoulder look is very cute. And I love the capris and sandals. These are the days to take advantage I’ve been by the lake, as you and I both know! Wishing you a lovely Monday, Terri xo . p.s. did you get the email I sent a week or two ago?

      Thanks so much Terri! We’re enjoying the summertime: happy and relaxed days at the beach. I checked my email and there are no emails from you. Did you use the right email address?

      Thank you so much Maggie! Blue and white are my favourite beach colours. And you know how much I love a lake or river view! 🙂 Funny, because I don’t swim. 🙂

    How beautiful, the sunset and you! I used to do some tie dye when I was in school, was quite fun. I think they can always be worn. You are so right even a very short trip to somewhere else recharges the batteries. A bit of ‘Tapeten wechsel’ is always good. It feels just great to get out a bit, even if it is not far. Much love Ute xx

      Oh yes, a little getaway certainly recharges the batteries! And we have been recharging quite a bit this summer. We haven’t ventured more than two hours from home and only stay overnight for one or two nights. Mostly day trips where we come home in the evening, which I prefer because I love sleeping in my own bed at night. 🙂

      That’s me: nostalgic and sentimental to a fault. I have always been that way, as a child I remember collecting little tangible things to remind me of special times. I have kept every card and letter and some things that most people throw away. It makes me happy when I look at them and brings back a flood of happy memories! My children will have a lot of junk to deal with, but they are treasures to me. 🙂

    I love this outfit, the beauty of the blouse and your capris, always your capris … my queen of Capri! Very beautiful sandals from Jean’s store and very appropriate for this look. Beautiful photos, with a fantastic background and with the most beautiful model in the world.

      Thanks ever so much Josep-Maria! Your comment made my day! Capris are my favourite summer look and these ones have such a pretty criss-cross detail. They are perfect for the beach and bicycle riding. 🙂

      Your Queen of Capri,
      ❤️carmen
