Perhaps the most important thing you need to know about Tegan is that she LOVES the sea. When she's not at school, she lives on the coast of Cornwall, in a village by the sea. When she's at home, she spends time on the beach nearly every single day. Before he died a few years ago, her dad was a fisherman, so she knows all the other fishermen in the village, and -- obviously -- they know her. Tegan likes to sail, surf, swim, fish, and anything else you can do in or near the ocean. Springtime is always a good time for her, because the end of winter means it's finally beginning to be warm enough again to do more than just sit or walk in the sand. So I decided to put together an outfit for her that would be perfect for kicking along the edge of the surf on a warm spring day.
Three further notes: 1) Tegan insisted that I make an official note that she would not ordinarily wear such a 'girly' outfit. ('Girly'?! There's nothing 'girly' about this outfit!!!) 2) Since photographer Tegan has become model Tegan, our friend Elijah served as guest photographer for this post. Thank you, Elijah! 3) I picked out the perfect pair of sandals for Tegan to wear with this outfit, but she declared that she only ever goes barefoot by the sea. I suspect she didn't like that the sandals have a tiny bit of a heel!
