I’m on a Boat

I’ve been on this major nautical kick lately.  I’m not really sure where it came from, but this rope belt makes it very easy to achieve.

Even without a rope belt, the nautical look is super simple.  Basically, just pair navy with any bright solid color (think your 8-box of crayons from elementary school) and white.  Stripes and brass buttons also make the look, but if you want to keep it clean and simple, navy, white and a color is the way to go!

What you can’t tell from this picture is that my sweater is wool-weight and I wore it on a day where the heat index was over 100 degrees.  Sometimes, I make poor decisions for the sake of fashion.  Had I had a nice, light-weight navy cardi, I would have worn that one instead.  But I do not, and once I get an outfit idea in my head, there’s really no turning back, so I suffered in silence.  Really, though, since my office is usually kept at a tundra-esque temperature, I was generally pretty comfortable.

Now I just need to find a man with a yacht…suggestions, anyone?

Dress: JCPenney
Cardigan: Hand-me-down
Belt: off a shirt I bought at H&M
Shoes: Nine West (which, by the way, is a terrible brand for me and now having had several pairs, I’ll never buy again.  But, these are cute)


  1. I am addicted to all that is nautical. I guess being in the Coast Guard has something to do with that. I buy mostly all J Crew off Ebay so I dress for hardly anything and look like I live in the Hamptons. ha ;o)

  2. Haha. I love it, Holly! I’m going to have to do some more ebay shopping – what a great idea! Thanks for reading.
