May is Nautical


It’s EBEW time! But first, I have a confession: I’m bad at nautical. I’ve never really gotten this look down. I don’t have any fun nautical hats or white blazers or high-waist shorts. ┬áMostly, though, I’m simply not drawn to the classic nautical colors: navy blue or red. I just don’t have a lot of these colors in my closet!

Red tee: Madewell, Striped tee: Urban Outfitters, Skinny Jeans: Banana Republic, Shoes: Old Navy, Bracelet: H&M, Bag: Urban Outfitters

Attempt two. You can’t say it’s not nautical! People always tell me this dress is cute, ┬ábut I never know how to best accessorize with it. Help! Any suggestions?

Dress: J Crew Outlet, Bracelet: H&M, Shoes: Old Navy

Funny story behind this dress. Last spring, I was on my way to Austin when I decided to stop by the Round Rock Outlets briefly. I had my dog with me, but I figured since it wasn’t really hot and I was only making a quick stop, all would be fine. So, I ran into J Crew, found this dress, tried it on, loved it, and obviously purchased it. I got back to my car only to find that someone had called animal control on me! I couldn’t believe it! After enduring a bit of a lecture and a lot of guilt, I drove home with my new dress. It has felt a little like blood money ever since! Don’t worry everyone, my pup is still alive and well!

Which look do you like best? Do you ever go nautical and have any tips for me? I would love to hear your thoughts!
