Whenever I go on a holiday near the sea this is one outfit that always comes along with me.
Something about ombré in ever deepening tones of blue always reminds me of the ocean. That miraculous gradation of the colour of water with its increasing depth that takes it from appearing virtually colourless through all the shades of blue, before darkening all the way to black as your eye follows the sea out into the distance.
The ocean is Nature's study in ombré. I see it in the way the palest of white foam rides atop the transparent tipped waves that curl out of the expanse of azure to kiss the silvery shore. I see it in the blue of the sky reflected in the sea, or when the bright sapphire waters eventually bleed into richer tones of indigo as they pass over the reefs below, before melting into the mysterious, inky black of deep water.
