come with me my love, to the sea the sea of love.

just a day in the florida sun. ♥ as i get older it gets more difficult for me to walk away from my work and take a personal day, but i spent this entire day sunbathing at the beach and eating blueberries and strawberries and it was lovely (aside from the minor sunburn on my back!) btw i think this is my first time showing my tattoo? yup, i have banksy’s girl with a heart balloon on me. i loved it enough to put it on myself forever and ever and ever. do any of you have tattoos? i didn’t have one until i was 22!

anyway, have a perfect day. I’ll be back soon to share some pictures of our new home!

dress: for sale in my store
shoes: c/o modcloth
sunnies: vintage

    Ooh, tattoo! I'm a fan. That makes you that much cooler in my book.

    Anyway, sounds like you had a lovely time! I'm seriously lacking in beach right now. (As you know, I live in the desert.)

  • It's a bit creepy for me to say this, but a long time ago you posted another beach photo with your tattoo showing. You and Matt were standing up against a rock and your tattoo was visible. It's a very neat tattoo. You look adorable as ALWAYS. <3 Have a wonderful day!

  • Love the dress! I totally know what you mean about taking a 100% personal day. I work full time during the week, and still on weekend I feel like I should be working on my shop or updating the blog or sewing, etc! Sometimes I need to remind myself, its all not GOING anywhere and will be there tomorrow just as it was when I come back to it!

    On another note, I ordered my first tea and tulips dress (a little sailor number) and it said it shipped today, can't wait to get it after quite the crap week I have been having. Thanks for being so adorable and having such a pretty shop!

  • I'm seriously in love with this dress, The print is so cute. I love it on you but it's one of those pale colors that I know I look terrible in.
    I got my first tattoo at 21, about 6 months before I got my ears pierced for the first time.
    I think yours is kinda great, I think that is my favorite banksy painting.

  • wow i'd love to see a close up of your tattoo! you're a babe, i gotta say. 🙂

    and your outfit is the cutest! i'm jealous of your relaxing day by the beach!

  • What a lovely tattoo!
    And where do you find those cute dresses? You always wear the most amazing clothes!

    Greetings from the Midwest,

  • That dress really makes your eyes pop, and I love the tattoo!!

  • I absolutely love the sleeveless collared shirt layered under your sleeveless dress. It's a great layering idea that adds a collar to your already super cute dress.

  • OMG. You are so cute Steffy!!
