Nautical, but not really.

Monday, September 06, 2010
Sometimes I pick out my clothes the night before. Sometimes I wear it and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I have no idea what I'm wearing the next day at all. Sometimes I just want to wear one article of clothing. Sunday was one of those days. I wanted to wear this blazer, belted. I went along with a nautical theme with the stripes and white skirt. But I also didn't want it to be too nautical so I chose tan accessories.

My bottom isn't usually striped - only when I'm wearing white...and a striped shirt...and no slip.

  2. the way you knotted that belt is such a nice visual treat. it reminds me of those knot stud earrings that were big in the 80s. i think i need a pair.

  54. The blazer looks great.

    I always have a couple ideas of what to wear for an event but then I usually decide the exact outfit right at the last minute. It usually works, but sometimes goes very wrong!
