Saturday sunset

I love driving along the Grand Parade, even though it usually involves a slight detour, as it runs alongside the beach and has views of Botany Bay. As I drove home last Saturday afternoon, with golden hour fading but before true dusk had set in, I decided to stop and enjoy the beach for a little bit. I had my camera on me so I took some snaps.


I've mentioned this before, but I love the sound of waves - it just scratches some sort of itch in my brain.


The city to the north.

The days are slowly but surely getting longer. Watch was c/o DW.


Tried to take some outfit shots with my remote but most of them came out blurry, apart from this one, conveniently capturing my look of terror as I see people approach.


So I scurried back to the car.

  1. Perfect blues. Wonderfilled imagery. I too like the sound of waves they make me feel so much alive than the sound of traffic which is the sound of my life here in London.

    1. Weirdly I like the sound of traffic too (when I'm inside) but waves are probably better haha.

  2. Ah, these photos are so stunning. I know exactly what you mean about the sound of waves - it's like the second I step foot near the sea or a big lake, I feel my brain just relax, instantly. Love the last photograph, so much.

  5. OOTD'ing in public is a thing. I try to go to places where it's pretty normal to see people snapping each other--like parts of LA and the beaches are pretty good since it's a typical "shooting" location. But I get the same cringey feeling when groups of people come too close to me and my tripod set up--but you grin and bear it and I'm learning to give less f*'s. Hehe. Carry on, Jane! <3

    1. Maybe bloggers should start a "getting sprung while taking outfit photos" series haha.

  8. Hahahha I love this! And I agree, there is something so calming about the ocean. I miss swimming in it every day like I did in Mexico.

  9. Beautiful pictures and you're story about feeling terror as people were coming makes me laugh cause I've had that moment before :) You're lucky to live near the water, it really is peaceful

    1. I probably take the water for granted since I've always lived relatively close to it!

  15. Hehehe, the stories that go with outfit shots are always worth it. And I miss the sound of waves, it's been a while. You're lucky to live so close to a beach! - And I'm forever in love with your Daniel Wellington watch.

  18. That watch is so gorgeous! I've been thinking about getting a Marc Jacobs watch but that Daniel Wellington one is just so pretty, I might be swayed.

    I am loving the button down :)
