swim until you can’t see land

I really want to pack up and go to the beach. Pity it’s starting to get rainy again and there’s a huge mofo of a cyclone about to hit the coast (albeit a lot further up than where I am currently situated). Anyway, I really liked this image from the latest Russh magazine. It’s got that 90s supermodel vibe about it. I could easily imagine Elle or Christie or Claudia in the model’s place. It’s also got that black summer feel to it, which suits my situation perfectly at the moment. Pity then that when I do go to the beach and the wind is whipping my hair in all directions, I look less smouldering and more serpentine. Ah well, them’s the breaks I guess.

    Haha don't we all wish we looked this good all windswept. Reality isn't so kind. Love these images. I agree with the black feel and the graininess.

    You have a wonderful blog 🙂 x

    These images are lovely, can see what you mean about the 90's supermodel feel. And Soph, no-one looks that good on a windswept beach – there's a lot to be said for lighting, hair, make up…! Sally x

    I wish it was warm enough to go to the beach.

    I love these photos. It's so simple yet really nicely done. I should start taking advantage of melbourne's warm weather and head to the beach.
    Ps. Poor queensland, they're having the worst summer.

    I've totally been wanting to head to the beach. My inspiration is more along the Brigitte Bardot sweater and jeans kind (considering the weather here), but these are lovely.
