Seaweed song

Seaweed toes
I took a walk to the beach again, this dress just feels so beachy to me. It's kind of the color of seaweed. But only the way that the color mint is the color of actual mint, which is not at all. That makes sense, okay?
I picked up this really cool belt last month from Coco's, it's by Nina Arjani and even has a year listed on it, 1994. Not really vintage, but still a very unique piece. It pairs perfectly with the dress, and of course, the starfish cuff. I love the cuff so much, and based on your comments you love it too, so you wont mind if I never take it off...

You look fabulous! This dress definitely has a beachy vibe going on. The belt and your snakeskin sandals are pretty awesome too. And yes, your starfish bracelet is pretty darn awesome!

That belt is great - the dress definitely a beach vibe all on it's own but when you toss in that belt it's just perfect!

It's a cool belt, but I think I would be tempted to leave this lovely dress beltless and let it billow in the breeze.

Kim said...

what a perfect beach outfit. Where are you?

Rebecca said...

Your dress is really pretty, and the pale green is lovely on you.

Isabel said...

1994 was almost 20 years ago. scary! and that kinda does make the dress vintage. lol

So pretty and great photos. I don't live near the water so I especially love it when you show pictures with the water in them.

This look is so gorgeous! I love the cut of the dress and the colour looks amazing with your colouring. I really like how you tied in the starfish belt with the cuff...the common elements are common but not too matchy matchy which gives the look that ecclectic vibe.

Nnenna said...

That is a really cool belt! Also, I love the striped tote! I'm jealous of all your beach pictures Lydia, they are so pretty =)

Unique dress! I like the bottom of the skirt and how it seems to ride up and down like waves.

That is one beautful dress and it all goes so well together, the belt, the cuff and the seaweed dress. Very pretty look and great pictures. =)

love that golden light you captured, and your starfish cuff, too!

Amber Blue Bird said...

these shots came out great. I think the color is an olive seaweed which isnt a real thing but you know what I am saying

Amy said...

I totally agree with you about how the color of the dress evokes seaweed. These shots are.... beyond, beyond gorgeous (my fave is probably the first if I was forced to pick)! And that belt? Couldn't be cuter!

Kristin said...

That belt is just incredible!

The beach is always so refreshing! I just wish the one here in SF was warm, water is always freezing!

This outfit has so many hints on ocean and mermaid, love it!

Tiffany said...

If mermaids had to get dressed, I think this is what they would choose! It is beautiful and ethereal at the same time.
