Week O’Nautical sails on with the Coast Guard’s signature orange being today’s focus. I mean, with a bright color like that, how can it not go noticed… at sea or in a nautical influenced outfit! The inspiration all started with one perfect necklace, the mark. Sail Away Duo Charm Necklace ($20 at my eBoutique). How perfectly fitting for my week of nautical outfits as we count down to the long Memorial Day weekend!?!
The mark. Sail Away Duo Charm Necklace is a delicate, colorful charm necklace featuring an anchor and a sail boat. The perfect nautical styling for pairing for a casual and fun nautical outfit!
I paired my guard orange skirt from Express (belt by mark.) with a navy tank from Kohls and my favorite navy and white striped open cardigan from Loft with a gold tote and flats from mark. A functional outfit for so many occasions including a Memorial Day BBQ!
Typically a heels wearer, but I’ll make an exception for cute chain details and gold. Sometimes the occasion just calls for flats. When nautical trend styling gold chain detailing is a must! A trend carried from head, the mark. Hang With Me Earrings ($20 at my eBoutique), to toe with these mark. flats.
Gold details, nautical stripes, navy and guard orange, all the nautical elements needed for a Week O’Nautical outfit. You could easily switch out the skirt for shorts or loose the cardi for warmer weather. Wearing a bright color is easy when you pair it with grounded pieces like a solid navy tank. Give it a try this Memorial Day weekend!
Because the skirt is a little mod in shape with the a-line mini I went with a mod eye makeup creating a navy cat eye using the mark. Island Eyes Pallet ( $16 — see my review here). I used the light blue shade all over my lid then using an eyeliner brush (dry) I created a line at the lashes using the dark blue shade and extending it beyond. I followed up with a liquid liner on top of that line (mark. Get In Line) and finished with a good coat of mascara on curled lashes (mark. Last Act) and mark. Island Beauty Pallet for bronzing and blush. Get all the products used at my eBoutique.
We’re down to only 1 more work day until the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day weekend. As you figure out your plans, and therefore your outfit, hopefully Week O’Nautical provides some inspiration. Check out my past posts from the week: Mani Monday, White Linen and Wear To Work. Be sure to check back tomorrow and over the weekend for more Week O’Nautical!
