The Nautical Look…

Every year when the warm weather rolls around, I dress up in outfits with the requisite nod to the nautical look.  I can’t help it.  It speaks of seas and ships, beach-y vacations, and Audrey Hepburn smartly lounging.

I thought I would mix stripes with prints, and here I am wearing leopard print ballet flats… a look that I’ve wanted to try for a while, and usually a print that is reserved for autumn/winter… but I rather like how the entire outfit turned out!  Oh, and don’t worry about my squishing my poor travelling case.  It has seen far worse. 😛

Top:  Zara organic cotton top ($19.00)

Bottom:  Rich & Skinny ‘Legacy’ crop ($80.00)

Shoes:  Kelsi Dagger ‘Bettie’ ballet flats ($30.00)

Have you ever had to make do with the clothes you had at hand?  Did you like the result?

    I love the fact that you have bubbles in your purse. I started carrying soap flakes in my purse last year and they came in very handy in India when I got slimed by an elephant while feeding her a treat.
