I originally planned to shoot this outfit elsewhere, but when we walked past the beach and saw that the tide was low enough to actually reach the shipwreck, we immediately decided to go for it. As the water already started coming back, we knew we had to rush – especially because of the white pants. This was such a spontaneous idea, that the outfit was not really appropriate for trudging through the slippery mud. However, wondrously I managed to avoid any kind of dirt on my clothes – I’m quite proud… even though I have to be honest as well: I was really close of covering myself completely with this brown-green slimy sand, as I had the great idea of jumping around. Only thanks to regaining the balance just in time, I didn’t end up on the floor J You would have loved to see those pictures, wouldn’t you?
For this look I wore one of my favourite pieces from my wardrobe – a tulle peplum top with Chenille embroidery from Catherine Malandrino. I paired it with the white pants I already showed you in an earlier post (here). The black sandals weren’t very useful in this setting, so I just used them as an accessory. When it comes to my wardrobe, I have a memory like an elephant: I can remember every store and story behind every piece I ever bought. The story behind this peplum top was a very positively surprising one: You probably know this feeling when it’s sale season and you spot the perfect garment – and then discover that it’s not your size. This was exactly the case with this top! However, it was not only one size smaller, judging from the size label it should have not fit me at all. This top is actually an US size 0! I have no clue why I fit in there, surely the sizing must have gone wrong with this piece – because I am really not a size 0 The moral of the story: Even if in doubt, always try it on – sometimes you are lucky!
Historical fact: The wooden shipwreck is almost 90 years old and used to be a Finnish four-masted schooner that was turned into a motor sailer and exploded 1926 on the river Elbe.
