I find it quite humorous that for someone who cannot swim a stroke how much I love the nautical look. I think it's a combination of how clean, fresh, comfortable, yet somehow dressy nautical fashion is, and also how much it reminds me of the lazy days of summer, warm breezes, and water. Even though I'm afraid of deep water, I still love taking boat rides, laying in the sun on a beautiful beach, and watching ocean waves and wildlife.
For today's look, I'm wearing a nautical sweater from Talbots (old), linen drawstring pants from J.C. Penney, a polka dotted red scarf (old, JCP), and white loafers (old, Dr. Scholls).
I wore all red jewelry (old, Old Navy) and carried my new yellow bag (Charming Charlies) to bring in a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.HERE). Since I was on vacation and I only had limited clothes with me, I needed a new white sweater to replace the one that got destroyed. The next day we visited the sweet, but affluent town of Hanover where I found a Talbots. Now, even though I like some of Talbots clothing line, they are usually a bit too pricey and 'old looking' for my taste. However, I did find this sweater on a clearance rack for about $20.00. I bought it on the spot for it was perfect for getting me through the rest of my vacation, and it was such a classic design I knew it would be a wardrobe staple forever (unless I wear it hiking on a treacherous mountain). :) I love it when clothing has special memories connected to it…don't you? It does make it hard to clear out your closet however!
These are my go-too summer shoes! Because they are white, they go with just about anything, and I love the distressed look. The fact that they are made by Dr. Scholls is even better…because they are so comfortable!
This look is a great example of how you can look like spring or summer, and still be warm. It would be a great look on a cool spring day…or on an actual boat ride since the temperatures are so much cooler on the water.
