hello summer

"You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." — C.S. Lewis*

Awhile back I mentioned how I wanted to wear this dress layered over a bathing suit and nothing else. Mission accomplished.

There's something about getting in the water with your clothes ON. It never ceases to thrill me to jump in the ocean/lake/river while still dressed. It's very freeing. You should try it.

  1. That's such a perfect cover-up...I've never tried getting into the water with my clothes on (other than as a child falling into a pond while trying to catch a frog...ooops)
    I love that pretty and fun!

    And my boots are the picture of just the boots the red light on my camera kept shining on new Camera is the Nikon CoolPix S6000....I have yet to figure it out because I've been too lazy to read the magazines are much more entertaining....

  2. I love swimming with clothes on. Well, okay, swimming period! haha

  3. i love that quote. love it. i've never heard it.
    gonna have to use it.

    i love that you are in the water in your dress :)


  4. Wearing a flowy dress in the water sounds amazing. I wouldn't want to try it in jeans, though.

  5. Beautiful! That must be your sexy new bikini too, looks good, from what I can see of it.

  6. Love the Lewis quote. More please!

    Gorgeous photo, gorgeous lady.

  7. I feel like that necklace and that dress go perfectly together! Lovely!


  8. Cette robe est tout simplement magnifique !

  9. I like that quote too. I also like:

  14. This is a gorgeous dress, and looks so fun in the water!

  15. Great photo! I don't think I've ever jumped into the water with my clothes on...

  16. Random quotes are good as long as you keep posting. :-)

With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
