When its 106 out there’s really only a few options, and usually include your lightest sundress. I’ll take any reason to wear a LWD, and then pair it with navy AND a monogramed bag and we have ourselves a look that will not only beat the heat and work for week o’nautical!
Dress, hat, necklace – Loft
Monogrammed tote – Bridesmaid gift from the one and only Nicki!
Now here’s your traditional nautical look for Friday. The delta breeze is coming through so only like a high of 70 today which got me excited because I thought to myself, “I can wear my white jeans for nautical week!” This is what gets me excited, I’m easy to please.
Classic Nautical Look
The top is my week of nautical staple, I wear it every week o’ nautical every year. This BeBe find from years back has paid for itself with the price per wear index. My jeans were gifted to be from the best gifter, my mom! She’s got the Kohl’s connection so when I saw that Rock and Republic came to Kohl’s mom granted the hookup. I highly reccommend the Rock and Republic line at Kohl’s. Since Kohl’s bought out the line they’ve done a good job at keeping its original look and feel of the line with a better price point. These are the Kasandra fit which I like a lot because they slim through the legs down past the knee until they flare out for the bootcut. I would like them to be a little more low rise but that’s because I’m only 5′ even. The weight on these is a little thick but not too thick that they’re too hot for spring. Plus the thickness allows for almost zero show through.
As for the rest of my outfit I switched from the gold I’ve been wearing all week to clean and sleek silver. I kept it simple with a cuff from Express, a bracelet style watch from Burberry and simple silver band ring I got on vaca to Mexico. And then there’s my shoes… I’ve been waiting all week to wear these navy cut out pumps with grey and yellow detailing from Shoedazzle. These shoes suck to walk in, they’re too big even with inserts and barely stay on my feet, but they’re nice and high and match so nicely so when I can, I sacrifice for fashion. And you know that bag and scarf I showed you in Wednesday’s Boho Nautical look... well I tied that scarf on my bag for a little extra something. (even the pups liked it!) I also wore some super star dangling earrings I found in my jewelry box from college. Didn’t really show up well in my pics, but my star earrings showed up nicely with a messy pony. I thought they were very USA stars and strips appropriate!
