Ahoy Skipper

It is hard to live near the water and not dress nautical; I firmly believe that our surroundings influence us greatly. So, as this outfit came together I felt as if I ought to be spending my day on some sort of sailboat (obviously I did not!). I couldn’t resist this little striped number from the brand Dear Creatures, which my sponsor Shop Ruche carries. It’s everything I expect from Ruche and Dear Creatures: slightly retro, timeless, and comfortable. It’s a perfect summer dress, but as summer is leaving us I had to throw on some layers—I’m a big fan of blue, on blue, on blue… This denim vest is turning out to be a great layering piece!

  5. Totally agree about surroundings being influential...that's why I love moving or visiting a place, I love how I start to change my way of dressing. Learning how to be chameleon like is a valuable skill.

    I love the headscarf; how do you get it to stay put? Mine constantly fall off, and I don't notice it until somebody runs after me with it. :)

  7. my go to item as to be a striped nautical shirt, and of course, since I moved to an island 6 months ago it as intensified my obsession on nautical items! so i totally agree on how living near the beach (and seeing it every single day) can affect that!

  10. My parents are moving to VA Beach, and if I were to live there too, I would probably be very much affected by the water. I adore nautical! I like the scarf headband a lot :)

  12. I'd say that having immersed myself in blogs, that they're a big part of style inspiration for me. Lately I've been mulling over menswear from what I've seen!

    The nautical style is so cute and chic-- I love the hair with the scarf!

  21. I love the retro edge you've added with the scarf in your hair. Also love the geek chic glasses necklace! It adds a slight boyishness to a girly look.

  23. Ever since you got that vest, you've been showing me new ways to style my denim vest. It's such a cool piece, and I like that you still manage to keep your girlyness in wearing it!

  24. Kicky, Flippy dresses are the cutest. Especially if they evoke days in Paris. with a cute fascinator or beret, you'd be in very Parisian shape!

    Lovely.

    As always.

  30. Another great look by you! Just curious how come you did not wear navy or white keds to complete the nautical theme?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great look girl! Love the headband idea very much. I think I will try it too...it looks so sweet on you!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Anonymous, for one thing I like to mix things up a bit: nothing to head to toe or theme-y; it should look nautical without being too literal. Second thing: I don't have keds! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the layers, and those shoes!!
    I wanna leave there. I would spend the entire day sitting there.

    Kisses!

    cheers.
