70s Beach *Pastels & Tourists

It was a beautiful Sunday morning today, so I felt it necessary to travel to the beach for this shoot, considering all the pretty pastel colors involved. In my big closet clean-out/reorganization, I stumbled across this shirt from Charlotte Ronson that I got a million years ago and these cream wedge ‘flats’ that I felt would both go together well since they reminded me of all the 70s stuff coming out. I love the caning detail on the shoes (a bit 70s, right? Or am I crazy.. idk, I’m not old enough to know!!)  The pants I swiped from my sister on my recent trip to Orlando. (Meg- did you notice something’s missing from your closet?? Thanks! :) )
The drive over was funny; we had to wait for the drawbridge to go up (for the boats to get through), and two cars in front of me this entire family- driver and all- run out of their SUV and charge the drawbridge like it was some kind of magical piece of machinery that could not be observed from the safety of your own car. They watched in awe as some other dude in an adjacent car, got out of his car and proceeded to take pictures and movies of it (the drawbridge, not the people). I’m really hoping their FL license plate vehicles were rentals and they were people from some landlocked state… (don’t get me wrong, I love tourists and all, but I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. I’m not a hater, just telling a funny story, but maybe you just had to be there…)

    Love that last pic, it's really pretty. Regarding tourists – is there a thing where people leave their brains at home before getting on the plane? I've done so many silly things on holidays that I would never do at home and, coming from Ireland, we do get the occasional tourist asking where the leprechauns live!
