Earn Your Stripes

We sure did! Here’s a few helpful tips on how to get a nautical themed outfit going. It’s seriously one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your wardrobe, and many of the pieces can be cross-referenced to other styles!

Step One: Stripes. How can you not love stripes? They’re so cute, and can be worn in a multitude of ways. (Check out my earlier post about pattern mixing if you need some help with this one).

Step Two: Bright reds. Add a dash of red to a neutral outfit and you’ve added some flair to an easy ensemble. Classic red lipstick, red belts, and even chunky red jewelry count!

Step Three: Tall boots. They’re sexy but still practical, especially when exploring on the beach! Though I won’t recommend them once the summer heat sets in…

Step Four: Gold jewelry. Every sea-farer has a handy stash of gold, so why shouldn’t we have ours (not that we would ever give up our accessories, unless we’re getting a good trade!).

Here’s how my best friend Aina and I worked the nautical look when we went beaching! For more photos check out her blog, Aina’s Addiction, or either of our Facebook pages! If you want details on any of the things we’re wearing we’d be happy to share, so just ask <3
