This style post is a long time coming. I posted ( THIS pic ) on Instagram and announced that this divine nautical outfit would be up on the blog on Monday.. a week ago. I had the best of intentions, you guys! I sat down at least three times to edit and write, but, life took over. I have to say, I am more than okay with that. I realized that sometimes we have to take a step back from these little black keys, and fully engagement in the life around us. Our online spaces are important and special but they aren't going anywhere. Moments of laughter, moments to store up lasting memories, moments of love.. those are fleeting. Snatch up every chance you have to soak in those moments! Your online space will right here waiting for you :)
On another note: I am loving these nautical vibes. Living in a town that is 100% boating/beach oriented, this outfit just makes sense. I hate boating, mind you. It pains me to be trapped on a sea vessel with salty air whipping the lion's mane, and stinging my eyes. This outfit is my way of embracing the "salt life".. without getting salty or wind whipped. Speaking of being wind whipped.. Massive shoutout to windblown half top-knots.
W E A R I N G:
TOP: Bailey44 | This top is from last season and I can't find it anywhere online!
SKIRT: Banana Republic | This ridiculously comfy skirt is out of stock right now. Sad day. HERE is a fun alternative.
WEDGES: Jessica Simpson | These wedges are another case of "oops last season", and that was at least three seasons ago. Yikes. HERE is the updated version. I secretly love them more than the wedges I already have.
BAG: Shabby Apple | Apparently handbags are no longer an option at Shabby Apple. Crazy right?
NECKLACE: This necklace was gifted to me from my Aunt a number of years ago. It sparkles like crazy in person. It's magical ;)
What is your stance on nautical vibes? Have you needed to 'step back' from your social platform and catch your breathe? Let's chit-chat about it in the comments!
Have a beautiful day, Jen xo
