Keeping things short and sweet today I am going to talk about trying summer trends!
I love the nautical trend; maybe because I am a fan of blues and bright red (give me all of the red lipsticks!!), or maybe because I used to work at a summer athletic club where our logo was a sailboat, either way, I am a fan.
Usually, I just pop in my little steering wheel or sailboat earrings and wear something light and summery, but today I thought I would participate in the #seasonalstaples challenge on instagram and feature a nautical look.
A couple years ago I bought a blue and white striped dress, it had brass button details and I wore it with a red skinny belt. I only wore it once because it was *too much* nautical – I looked like I was trying too hard.
So today I tried to dial back: I wore my favourite red skirt (you may remember it from my “hey I want to be Joan from Mad Men” day), a simple white tank and my fabulous boyfriend-styled blazigan (which I’ve talked about at length, here).
My hair was post braids curly so I tried to contain it with a bandana, went with cat-eye eyeliner, and bright red lipstick (thank you Kat von D!).
I wore my steering wheel studs, my favourite silver cuff, my Beck&Boosh necklace and decided to take this envelope-esque clutch for a spin.
How do you feel about the nautical trend? Over-rated? Do you incorporate it by including colours, stripes, or small details (jewellery, or rope accessories)?
