Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

Week O'Nautical - Beach Please

Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

It’s that time again… Week O’Nautical time! The week before our summer holidays, (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day) I theme out my life with nautical influenced red, white, and blue! Unfortunately, this year, I’ve come down with a bad cold so WON gets a late start.  Memorial Weekend is all about fun and sun as it begins the unofficial kickoff to summer.  Lucky for me, my mom was still here visiting so we spent her last day poolside… well hot tub-side because the pool was too cold, but regardless we took advantage and had some fun in the sun.

Today’s look may of been meant for louging poolisde, but it would be just as great beachside or at a casual picnic or bbq.  These nautical mark. Beach Bum pants with sailboat print, were the perfect cover up that looked just as good as an outfit as they did over my suit.  And they have pockets!  I paired the mark. Beach Bum pants with a white sweater tank from Express.  A white summer sweater always feels so nautical to me.

This trend was popular last year but this season it is the “IT” sandal for summer.  You’ll see this style everywhere from Nordstroms to mark.!  Obviously, I went with the mark. option, the mark.

It’s so super easy and comfortable to wear.  The printed shift style looks great worn casually or dressed up.  I will warn you it has no stretch in it, but it still fits and wears really well.  It may be just another printed dress, but the lace up neckline and cuffed sleeves add some trendy detailing that make this dress better than your average.

How To Wear A Sequined Dress Casually

TGIF!  We made it through the week, and that is something to be celebratory for.  If you’re headed out this weekend to be celebratory why not wear the most celebratory kind of dress, a sequined one!  It’s not New Years, I can’t wear sequin… wrong!  Dress it down, wear it casually and feel like a million bucks because thats what wearing sequins does.

mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress Over Sequins Of Events Dress

Layering the mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress over the mark. Sequins of Events dress creates a casual take on sequins.  The casual piece, the chambray dress, automatically tones down the sequins from party to pretty.  You could even button up the dress instead of wearing it open like I did for just a pop of sequins for an even more casual take.

mark. Sequins Of Events Dress

mark. Sequins Of Events Dress

Some key elements keep this a causal look.  First is the all black sequins, the power of a little black sequined dress!  Secondly is the fit, it isn’t a super tight party dress, it’s a more forgiving loose fit with a higher neckline.  This mark. Sequins Of Events dress is part of our summer sale going on now so you can pick this up for ONLY $24.99!  That’s a pretty good deal on a sequined dress.

Blue Suede Shoes - mark. By Any Stretch Pump

Blue Suede Shoes – mark. By Any Stretch Pump

Summer suede is not only a huge trend this year but it also adds a low key vibe, even on these statement shoes!  Suede shoes will soften the look, you could wear an open toe bootie or wedge or even a flat sandal.   I love a good statement shoe and these mark. By Any Stretch Pump have been in heavy rotation.  Plus, I just love the blue black combo paired with the blue of the chambray and black dress!

A Casual Sequined Dress Look!

Finally a few simple accessories finish off the look, some rose gold hoops (Charming Charlie), a single rose gold and crystal bracelet (Henri Bendel) and a gold clutch (mark. makeup bag pulling double duty as a clutch!).  With this easy summer makeup look we’ve got a full casual look perfect for hot summer nights!

Week O’Nautical: Beach Hat and Romper and Perfect Brows For Free

Week O'Nautical - Romper and Beach Hat

Week O’Nautical – Beach Hat and Romper

What’s more weekend ready than a beach hat and a romper?  What’s more 4th of July weekend ready than a red white and blue romper and a shimmering faux straw hat!?  Nothing, that’s what, so I guess I’m 4th of July weekend ready!  I can already taste the burgers and dogs!

Rocking A Romper In Red White And Blue

Rocking A Romper In Red White And Blue

I picked up this guy at Marshall’s this spring and it has been my go to for summer bbq’s and picnics. Rompers can definitely be tricky, key is to find one that flatters your body shape especially at the waist.  And also find one that’s easy to get in and out of because let’s be honest, your going to have to go to the bathroom and nothing worse than a bad romper bathroom situation.

I love this one for the 4th with all its colors against the white base.  It’s really a statement all on its own so I just need to add on my sparkly straw hat with a circle brim, the mark. Ray Of Sunshine Beach Hat and my go-to red earrings the mark. Flight Of Fancy Earrings, Avon Summer Quench Watch, Avon Ms. Patriotic Necklace and mark. Right On Stack Bracelet Stack (coming soon) all at my eBoutique.  Follow it up with these fun wedges from Shoedazzle and I’m good to go for whatever the weekend brings me!

Just as easy as my summer outfit is so is my summer makeup.  Great thing about wearing a great hat like this mark. Ray Of Sunshine Beach Hat is you can lay off the shades.  Which means its a great time to play up those eyes.

In makeup right now the trend is big lashes and on point eyebrows, which actually is a pretty summer friendly eye makeup look, just add a bold lip and done (like the mark. All Butter Lip Treat in Fired Up).  I’m not a big eye brows person (sorry, not sorry) but when I do decide to jump on the band wagon the Avon Perfect Brow Kit is my go to.

A classic trench coat is the perfect layering piece for chilly spring mornings intro work.  For spring a soft trench is not only on trend but the lighter design makes it ideal.  I just love this mark. Soft Touch Trench, it was such a great investment piece.

The “IT” Skirt For Summer – Asymmetrical Skirts

The "IT" Skirt For The Summer - Asymmetrical Skirts

The “IT” Skirt For The Summer – Asymmetrical Skirts

You know what song is stuck in my head, Demi Lovato “Cool For The Summer”.  You know what else is cool for the summer, asymmetrical skirts.  (see what I did there!?).   Anyways, this skirt trend has been happening for a bit, but looks like this summer marks it as the IT skirt.  I showed you a little inspiration in yesterday’s post but what’s great about this style it is super versatile dressed up or down summer, fall winter or spring!  mark, my love, is always on trend so no surprise this spring they came out with the mark. Taking Sides Skirt, it just took me this long to get my hands on it!

Asymmetrical Skirts and I Are Cool For The Summer

Asymmetrical Skirts and I Are Cool For The Summer

It’s basically and updated version of a high low skirt that mixed with a wrap skirt.  For summer this type of skirt is best in a knit fabric but dressier chiffon options are just as cool.  This mark. Taking Sides Skirt is a lightweight knit fabric in black but high enough quality that it will retain it’s shape and no see through.  This one is a little higher waisted on me so I did fold the band down and in.

Cool Asymetrical Wrap Design Gives a Hi-Low Appeal

Cool Asymetrical Wrap Design Gives a Hi-Low Appeal

I paired mine with a high neck racerback knit tank with lace detailing (Express, old) but this would look really cute with any of those high neck cut tanks with the deep cut ins around the shoulders that are super popular and at every store in every color known to man.  If you’re feeling a little more trendy pair it with a crop top.
