Setting Sail

nautical

Ahoy, maties! Monday's outfit post was '60s mango-licious but today I'm all nautical. Big brass buttons even! 

I don't think I wake up in the mornings intending to "theme dress" but sometimes pieces in your closet just seem to beg to be worn with each other. Like the shoes and the bag in the same hue with the gold-tone accents need to be together. The jacket that plays off the itty bitty black ship's wheels on my sweater. The off-white in the sweater that is the same off-white as in the skirt - and a pattern mix that is apparent but doesn't seem over-the-top (hopefully) because of the white.

So all I really need is a knotted silk scarf at my neck and maybe a shiny black bill to a captain's hat worn askew on my head and I'd be all set to sail the virtual seven seas. 

Wonder what I'll be come Friday!

  1. Sometimes I think that my clothes literally speak to me. Which I know makes me a crazy clothes lady, but I know you understand.

  2. Oh, from afar, the sweatshirt looked bejeweled, but they really are ship wheels! How cunning! And girl, don't even talk to me about theme dressing - you know that's the life's blood of my blog. Eheh. Can't wait to see what you cook up for us on Friday!

  7. Always good to have a theme in the morning. But maybe best not to go whole hog and add the captain's hat and scarf. ;)

  13. I can totally relate to items just begging you to wear them together.
    Your nautical themed looked turned out perfect.

  14. This post and these photos are bursting with adorableness. Love the nautical look, and that skirt is perfection on you. Plus, I'm convinced that stripes make EVERYTHING better, which you also proved today.

  18. Oh my gosh! You would look so awesome with the sailors hat! I have to say that I like theme dressing - but subtle - like the one in your post. You really didn't scream nautical - you just implied it.I found myself in a ballet inspired outfit this weekend when I went to a dance show. A ballet pink shirt - ballet flats - and a black skirt. It just kind of ... happened. Fun!

  21. This is adorable. If you are gonna do a theme, this is the right way! not too theme-y.

  24. I love nautical, and wear it so often that I don't even consider it a 'theme' any more.
