Grey dawn breaking

Dress: Liz Roberts, thrifted; Belt: Loft; Shoes: Clarks; 
Skeleton key necklace: vintage, from Minx; Bag: thrifted.

"I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over..."

- John Masefield, "Sea Fever"

P.S. I've been styling my hair lately with this curly-hair tutorial . The updo above is the "before" stage, and I really like wearing it that way during the day.
