Sea Green


I just came across this picture this morning and had to put this up on my blog.  I love the colour of the dress and against the backdrop of the sea it has a calm feel to it,  just makes me want to go to the beach.  Instead I will be working and this afternoon helping my big boy to get ready for his Semi-Formal (how exciting).  I spoke to his friends mother last (the girl who he is taking to the Semi),  she has two daughters and this is their 7th Semi/Formal they have done.  Of course having girls they get their hair done and makeup where as Alex just needs to get dressed and I guess he will do something with his hair. 
 Can you tell I am a little excited!

Have a wonderful Monday!


  1. How exciting! I hope he has a wonderful time.

    I love the pin you found too. That colour is stunning. Looks like you have summer on your mind!?

    Best wishes,

  2. He'll have a ball, such an exciting time! We've just had my son's formal and daughter's semi - in the same week. All I can say is - you'll cruise through, boys are so easy. Girls - whole other story :) Oh, and love that pic - makes this dreary day much brighter. xx

  3. Oh been there done this Mimi.
    Such an exciting occasion for our children. My son's biggest decision was to get a haircut and source a gold tie to match his partners dress, he didn't raise a sweat with either.
    I agree with Kerri about the girls...phew now that's mind boggling :))
    Take lots of photos

  4. Thank you for all of your beautiful wishes. I am feeling even more excited for him. Mimi xx

  6. I want to dive into both that gorgeous beach dress and that beautiful sea in the background! How inviting, real summer colours! You will have to share some formal pictures so we can see too! X

  7. Yay, formals, LOVE them, can not wait, even with all my daughters, all their dress choices & all the expense, it will be so much fun!!
    As for my son, he's already booked up to formals until he's 25, that is just from blogging mums wanting his dimples in their photos!! Love Posie

  8. Gorgeous kaftan - I bought one very similar in silk from Witchery for my Bora Bora holiday in May - it was the perfect shade of the water ...great for photos!
