Week O’Nautical: Update Without Breaking Your Budget
The Nautical trend is always a good way to update your wardrobe for spring. In most places it’s still pretty cold out, but we’re over our black on black on black and heavy winter wear. You can work in a few nautical pieces that will go with your winter basics and your summer basics making a very versatile spring wardrobe update. Avon just released their Seaside Gardens (see more), a nautical fashion and home capsule collection, and its extremely affordable! Let’s look how you can update your spring looks without breaking the break.
The Power Of 4.
Add 4 pieces, yep just 4 pieces. Sticking to only 4 pieces keeps you in budget and will be just enough to switch up your basics and breathe new life. The Avon Seaside Gardens collection is pretty affordable, so 4 pieces would keep you close to that $100 range. I would suggest a top, bottom, accessory and dress, but you need to gage your current wardrobe and lifestyle. Looking at what I was loving, needed and knew would flatter my shape, I went with a skirt, sandal, handbag and scarf. I can mix and match to update my spring wardrobe with these 4 items totaling $110.96!
Melanie Pencil Skirt in Gingham
I wear a lot of skirts and dress for work, and with the hot temps in Nor Cal a skirt works well for my lifestyle. If your lifestyle wears more casual and you’re just going to wear your favorite jeans try a classic nautical striped top like the Michelle Boat Neck top ($19.99).
Ankle strap, block heels and pretty embellishment, all a spring shoe needs!
I’ve always been a shoe person. A new spring shoe can even make an all black outfit feel like spring. The shoe selection in the Seaside Gardens collection is strong! I went with the Avon Cushion Walk Sandal With Stone Clusters, a low block heel sandal which will be functional, on trend and a pop of color.
Give me all the nautical shoes!
Switching to a new spring bag is the easiest way to spring up your wardrobe without giving up any of your winter wear. I went with this Veronica Tote Bag in the Blue and White strip (it also comes in red!).
Avon Veronica Tote with Scarf
Pick 1 thing different than anything you have.
For me it was this square scarf. I have plenty of big, wrap all over you scarfs, but I don’t have a cute little silky square scarf in a nautical print! Don’t diminish the power of an accessory, I can wear this as a cute neck scarf, a style I’ve never done and would bring something completely new to my look. Plus, it would be some warmth around the neck in the chilly weather. I can also wear it tied on a bag, as a head scarf, or ever worn a few different ways as a neck scarf.
Avon Silky Scarf
I literally could go through the entire collection and come up with a million combinations of 4 items to mix and match into your regular wardrobe. If you would like me to select a personalized pick for you, leave a comment!
Nautical Square Scarf
As an Avon representative, not only do I get to order things early, I also get some perks. For instance, with the Seaside Gardens collection, with every 4 items I ordered I received a FREE pair of earrings. These Avon Pop of Red Statement Earrings ($9.99) to be exact. A piece of statement jewelry is definitely a good idea for a 5th piece to add to my original 4. Even if I wear these with my black on black on black I’m adding a pop of something fresh. Or I can pair this with the block heel sandals and I’ll bump up my look for spring. *if you want early access, discounts and all the perks of being an Avon rep too you can sign up here for ONLY $25!
