Typically, when we think of Nautical we think of a red, white, and blue color palette. As you have probably figured out by now, I try to never be “typical”, always finding my own way to interpret trends. Today, I am sharing one of the ways I put my own spin on the Nautical Trend: by adding an unexpected color, of course! In todays’ Nautical OOTD I am wearing an outfit perfect for a day out sailing that adds YELLOW to the traditional red, white, and blue palette.
Today’s New Spin on Nautical OOTD starts with a 1980’s sailor blouse with shoulder pads and an oversized multi-color collar. I paired the blouse with a 1970’s nautical print skirt with a multi-color bird print and cinched it all in with a 1970’s yellow belt. The only jewelry I am wearing are the most perfect vintage earrings in the same multi-color scheme as my blouse and skirt. I also accessorized with my BIG HEART Novelty Bag from Kate Spade and the most perfect nautical sandal with giant anchors that lace up the foot– talk about making a statement!
Serendipity often plays a roll in my life and this day was no exception. While wandering around Beacon Hill in Boston to shoot this look, we took a detour onto a dead end street and happened upon a birdhouse that matched my outfit perfectly! I jumped at the chance to take a photo by the uncanny match, take a look at the photos below :).
Both my the vintage blouse and the vintage skirt I am wearing are available for purchase on my eBay store at the links below. While the majority of my listings are usually size small, this skirt is actually one-size-fits-all! If you haven’t checked out ShopGingersCloset.com recently, you are SERIOUSLY missing out!
