I’m guest posting for Miss Kate over at Nautical By Nature while she is away this week! Head on over to find out how you can incorporate some seafaring styles into your everyday wardrobe…!
I have been lusting after this Markus Lupfer sequin lobster sweater for far too long. Too long as in, it’s actually one of my first pins on my Pinterest. When I randomly came across these gold sequin anchor patches recently, I realized I could easily make my own version of the cardigan… for approximately $485 less. And I have hardly taken it off since.
Also, when did navy blue and pink begin to go so well together?
I’m back to posting today because I know we have to at least attempt to return to a sense of normalcy around here. Monday’s events are still first on my mind, and my thoughts and prayers are still with the victims and all affected.
I’m just about done with pants for the year. And tights. Unless they are of a pastel color, pants are out and it’s dresses and skirts with bare legs from here on out. Until they no longer cause extreme goosebumps (seen below), oxfords and lower leg-covering footwear are in.
Today we’re chatting about the super-soft super-cute Skip N’ Whistle. They sent me this scarf a few weeks ago and I’ve hardly taken it off. The scarves are made of American Apparel knit jersey– have you ever touched that stuff? It’s like a silk sweatshirt, in the best of ways. Everything in the shop, from the tees and tanks to the sweatshirts and messenger bags, are screen printed by hand in New Orleans. And it’s all printed to order– while I chose the anchor, I was also tempted by the octopus, pirate ship, and, obviously, bicycle. Skin N’ Whistle also sells customizable tees, tanks, bags, and tons of other quirky fun items. Next on my list? Definitely a tie between the seahorse tank and octopus sweatshirt…!

I’m not sure how exactly to describe my personal style.
It’s a bit preppy, a bit hippie, a bit vintage, and often just downright girly. Sometimes it’s boho and sometimes it’s nautical. But there are certain signature items I think you can always attribute to being very “me.” Bows. Polka dots. Tutus. Anchors. Sequins. Pearls. Example A:
(Boys) Cotton Anchor Sweater, J.Crew, $59.50
Karinska Tulle Skirt, Anthropologie, $188
Bow Hair Clip, American Apparel, $10

After a mild October up here in New England, it is now officially sweater weather. Here are some knits I’d be perfectly happy cozying up in as the temperature continues to drop…

Now a real question I’ve been debating all season: what do you think is the appropriate amount of money to spend on a sweater?
How excited was I to wake up a few weeks ago to find a J.Crew dress I had been eyeing forever on sale?
Very excited. I plan to wear it inappropriate amounts. Not accepting the fact that summer is over and bare legs are soon to be a thing of the past.
