Come Sail Away


This outfit is one of those "I like blue moments." It started off with the sweet sailboat dress and then I added my velvet bow belt. From there, blue heels and a nautical bag seemed to be the perfect additions. If I owned blue sunglasses those probably would have been thrown on as well. Perhaps I should start a blog called "I'm Only Happy When It's Blue," or would that be just too much?

The dress was originally adorned with four gold buttons and while I liked them, I was in the mood to butcher some clothes. This dress was lucky my mood only took me to remove the buttons, because sometimes I end up destroying pieces in an effort to customize and personalize. That is another reason I don't really do tutorials on my DIYs: they happen in the spur of the moment, often late at night, and are rarely repeated. After I made this bow belt I bought fabric to make more...that was a year ago and the fabric still lies neatly folded and ready for me to get the itch.

  21. Beautiful outfit! I love the nautical inspiration and the print of your dress, as well as the DIY velvet bow. Blue is one of my favourite colours to wear, and I like how you used it throughout your entire outfit in a way that provides a lot of visual interest without being monotonous/monochromatic.

  29. Lovely outfit! That color is great for the summer. Its been getting pretty warm where I live so all I've been wearing is dresses and a simple tank and skirt... Great shoes, by the way! :)
    I love that velvet bow, I have lots of leftover fabric from my last DIY project--maybe I should make a cool bow belt too!

  30. I love this! My favourite colour is blue too, at this moment I'm dressed up in my blue pyjamas...

    I once tried to diy a bag, now its ruined! I've learnt my lesson, I'm never put scissors against my clothes again.

  37. That tote bag may be the best I've ever seen.

    I also love love love blue. I sometimes think the movie (500) Days of Summer subconsciously brainwashed me to build an entirely blue wardrobe.

    I also have bags of scrap fabric. It's nice to know they're there-even if I probably won't be using them in the near future :p
