Nautical Notions

Monday, April 18, 2011


I feel like taking a mini-vacay to Nantucket in this ensemble. Something about striped grosgrain, itty bitty shorts, and a crisp white blazer absolutely screams summer in Cape Cod except that we're nowhere near a lighthouse and sailing on the seas is more suggestive of booze cruise than regatta racing. 


I've really been craving some sort of coastal adventure since the boy turned me on to syndicated Wings reruns where I pretend I'm a sassy and sarcastic Helen (a totally bangin' early 90's Crystal Bernard) and uber hot Joe Hackett (Tim Daly swoooooon) is my hubby. I swear they don't make leading men like they used to. Where's Zack Morris when you need him?!? 


Laundry by Shelli Segal Blazer, Thrifted Blouse, Mossimo for Target Shorts, Adrienne Vittadini Satchel, Michael Kors Plats, DIY Chunky Chain Bracelets, Banana Rebulic Multiple Chain Toggle Bracelet and Ruby Ring, Gifted Marc Jacobs Lola Flower Fragrance Ring, Carolina Herrera Sunnies, Betmar NY Hat


My ensembles inspire the most outrageously explorative ideas at times...can you tell?

Haute Khuuture's first giveaway ends this Friday April 22, so if you haven't done so already please enter HERE!!!

Hope everyone is enjoying an adventurous Monday so far!!!
