This week I am being inspired by the ocean. The beachy baby blues that make me long for summer days, the ocean and the way that salt water makes my hair less frizzy and more accidentally cool. Maybe it’s the cold days, the grey rainy week, but all I could think about as I prepared this post was running away to the ocean and diving in.
And it being warm, of course.
Or warm enough. Which at this time of year would absolutely not be the case. We are in doona season and the addition of lots of rain, cooler days, it’s made it clear that winter is coming. Looking back at last week’s snuggly mood board, I feel the seasons so strongly these days, I wonder if it was always the case. I’m not sure it was.
I know I used to remember when it was summer. I hit summer holiday mode and just went for it. But I don’t remember taking the time I am this year to reflect, to restore myself like I have been. As I step in sync with the outer world I feel calmer on the inside. You know, despite that desperate urge for the beach. There’s a calm with going with the flow I think. And that’s something I’ve learnt the hard way.
What are you feeling this week? Are you bunkering down in this cooler weather or gearing up?
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
This is such an inspirational post! I am going to a Greek island, Corfu, at the end of the month and I literally cannot wait 🙂
Ooooo so jelly! Haha. I would be SO excited. Some ocean blues will keep you going until you get there.
I love all the pictures you chose. April has been pretty lovely here in Cardiff but now May’s rolled around it is just miserable. Your post makes me long for those lazy summer days.
Also: I was taking a look at my top posts from the archive and your Advice Series post is like number one 🙂 So happy I started blogging again.
I hope you’re well (I guess I’ll find out by diving into your archives 🙂 )
Haha. I popped back over to it today. Replied to some comments since I was last there. Got to love an archive win.
Welcome back to blogging. I am well, we just settled on a new house, so all good. Thanks for asking. x
Thanks lovely 🙂
Winter always turns to spring, it’s the law of the universe. That’s the thing I love about summer (especially in Australia,) it’s never gone for long! In the meantime, I’m enjoying the cooler climate, the cosy nights, the return of the slow cooker and before I know it, it will be onesie weather! Bring it!
That’s the way it rolls, right? It’s nice to slow down and enjoy this time of year rather than tapping my foot waiting for it to be over.
Oooh I love your blog! Yes, I love blue too, it always reminds me of somewhere nice and the ocean too which I totally love. Much love, Kirsten xx
Thank you! Welcome, I hope you come back sometime soon! 🙂
