    Much like the shirt dress we have seen in the past few weeks, I don’t neccesarily like this one. : )
    ALTHOUGH it is an imporvement since the last shirtdress because at least she is just at the beach, using it as a coverup.
    She looks relaxed, cool, and someone you would want to hang around.
    Amazing picture!

    I miss summer already :( It’s freezing in England! Our ‘summer’ ended ages ago :(

    Hope her styrofoam cup doesn’t end up as beach trash but ends up in the landfill for the next several hundred years, out of sight. Would have been a much better look IMO with a reusable cup.

    Simplement magnifique. Pâleur, brise, calme.

    I like the melancholy of this picture and the winterish light. She’s probably wishing for a new summer and this one has not ended yet :). She somehow reminds me of Fearne Cotton.

    I love the carefree feeling of this shot…I live mere blocks away from Lake Michigan, I have yet to visit and dip my toes in the sands as this woman has. I rather go to the pool. Btw, that chambray (?) shirt would be easy to stitch. With so much ease, it could fit a variety of figure types.

    September 2, 2011 at 9:51 am

    Now, that looks perfect. I love the idea of an oversized guys shirt as a cover up.

    hi scott :) i love your + garance’s photography, you’re both my daily inspiration and fuel.

    i adore this photo, how she looks like she’s saying good-bye to the beach, coffee in hand, very Breakfast-in-Tiffany but on the beach hihi :)

    beautiful comfortable dress shirt too. i have a similar one from banana republic but its not as long.

    thank you both for sharing your Montauk photos every summer. you’ve made me want to go there and I wouldn’t have heard of it had it not been for your blogs!

    have a great end of summer xo,

    this color is great! sky and cloud, her skin, blue shirts, water…
    my favorite color :)

    I can hear a voice (maybe my voice) asking “She’s just wearing a blue oxford shirt–so what?”

    Well, her bare legs, sandy hair, and straw basket, match the sand. Her wrists and white cup match the clouds and sea foam. And her shirt is accented by the hint of blue in the sky.

    This picture shows how environment-dependent good fashion is.

    Beautiful in every way.

    Her cup goes in her beach bag, of course.
    To be used later until disposed in the proper way.
    Shame for thinking otherwise.

    The definition of summer.

    This shirt looks terribly feminine on her! Even glam’!
    Great pict!

    September 2, 2011 at 10:25 am

    So funny! I just pulled a shirt like this one out of my husband’s closet and wore it over my bathing suit to swim in Walden Pond. The swim was nice, but I would rather be in Montauk!

    Remember, summer doesn’t “officially” end until the first day of fall, September 23. Let’s continue to savor those last days!

  28. Lauren

    September 2, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Beautiful shot. I love the way she’s looking out to sea as if saying goodbye to summer.

    (Good point from the other Lauren about the styrofoam cup, though.)

    This just popped up on my friend’s Pinterest and I liked. I should have known it came from here!

    The very definition of beauty.

    Her cup would never wind up anywhere other than her carryall.
    How about yours?

    Love the denim shirt dress, its similar to the one posed a while ago in Italy. I like the idea what she’s saying goodbye to summer as well. A perfect way to capture the end of a beautiful summer.

  37. anastacia bogdanova

    September 2, 2011 at 11:06 am

    the whole athmosphere of the shot is just great! even if the outfit is so simple and casual
    sometimes the outfit makes the picture, somertimes the way you shoot makes the whole look.
    you have feeling of both.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:08 am

    this is not a guys shirt at all, it is a product of a men’s shirt, but since there are only 4 buttons, and the only guy that would wear this is Homer Simpson, we can conclude that it is a short and sweet summer dress. and i love the foamy waves.

  39. tagatha

    September 2, 2011 at 11:12 am

    And here’s the shirt dress in its’ natural habitat: the beach instead of the city. Please let it stay there.

    I love how the water is wrapping around her ankles. Looks like chiffon ankle wraps or something to that effect.

    her dress is cute and right on for the beach…..wondering when this July 4th start and Labor Day stop of summer become so official?

    September 2, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Great photo! There is something so American about this — blonde girl in denim shirt right on the beach.

    yeah, I will miss wearing shirts as a dress. Goodbye, summer! :/

  57. Grace

    September 2, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    I love how you captured the moment the waves hit her ankles. It almost looks like she’s wearing frilly, girly socks, except they’re made of water.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    @Lauren, pretty sure that’s a paper cup….

    Yes, prefer this kind of shirt dress on the beach too. Been thinking about what it is about them since that last blue one which for me was almost wonderful. I think it’s the insecure feeling that a wind could blow them up and reveal…nothing! There’s probably not “nothing” underneath in either case, but that’s the feeling that I think makes me hesitate. But, yes, on a beach it’s easier.

    what a great cover-up! love it…she manages to look chic at the beach…love the shot…you definitly feel the end of summer in this one

    Can’t believe someone is griping about the cup she is using. Give her the benefit of the doubt already.

    That is my essential summer outfit: exactly what I’m wearing right now, amazing coincidence. Wish I had those ‘shore shoes’, though… :)

    This kind of a shirt / dress, if well worn, can be really nice… Needless to say, this is the case here… A subtle mix between sexiness and handiness…

  74. Tara

    September 2, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I saw a shirt just like that when I was browsing through American Apparel online yesterday! They have a pinkish version that really caught my eye…

    Lovely shirt. And what an end to summer…a bit of a sad farewell. I just love her body language.

  81. Alyssa

    September 2, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    She wears that shirt perfectly. This is such an unexpected beach look! I would never think to grab a menswear-inspired button up to wear for this occasion, but it looks great here! ♥

    I would place this amongst your best photographs.

    The palette, the way her bag is slung over her shoulder…

    And mostly the foamy water wrapping around her ankles–
    beautiful, surreal capture.

    Hi . Summer just started for us in San Francisco. You can tell by my pics.

    But I know the feeling of how good being the water is.

  86. Kacie

    September 2, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Last weekend of summer indeed. This photo makes me want to kick off my shoes and wade in some water. I may have to settle for a baby pool but I think it’ll do!


  87. Nemee

    Love the laid-back, summery feel of this photograph. It really inflicts a feeling of nostalgia for summer and warmer days.

  89. sarah

    September 3, 2011 at 12:24 am

    There is something about the way the water has enveloped her ankles that makes them look like delicate socks. I find that to be the best part of this photo. What a great capture.

    As much as I love the look of a good tan –sadly a leftover habit of the 70s/80s, I also love seeing a person as they are, knowing they have cared for themselves against the sun’s harm. This girl look so simple yet so beautiful. The light in the photo is gorgeous too.
    We are just gearing up for summer here down under so this photo is very enticing. Nothing beats that feeling of the surf’s end foam at your ankles.

    The light in this picture is so perfect! I am from Florida and when I look at this photo, I feel like I am standing on a cloudy beach in January in Miami. A wonderful thing. Thank you.

    I thought, oh how pretty, nice shot. Then I saw the foam breaking around her ankles — perfection!

    There’s something about wearing blue at the beach that just nails it. Blue towel, or blue coverup, or blue bathing suit, it looks right.
