Another gorgeous day is upon us! My summer wardrobe is in full effect and it feels fantastic!
Every Spring the nautical trend usually rears it’s pretty little head in one way or another, whether it be through……..
- Colour – classic white, blue and red combination’s and pops of yellows and greens
- Cut – boat necks, flare legs, tailored jackets and trench coats
- Stripes – thick stripes, thin stripes. nautical is all about the stripes!
- Accessories & Hardware – gold, gold and more gold. Gold buttons, gold jewelry, GOLD!
Timeless, classic, and effortlessly chic….you cannot go wrong with this look : )
Spotting the Potential
I wanted to add an uber feminine punch to the classic nautical look.
Where to begin?
It all started with this dress.
I was tearing through the racks at Value Village when this little number caught my thrifty eye.
At first glance it did not look like much on the hanger at all………
Perhaps something 80’s sitcom mom Angela Bower would have worn while busting a move home from the office. Visions of Angela in her nude hose, sport socks and Reeboks abound…. her big, over-sprayed hairdo awkwardly flapping in the wind.
Upon closer examination of the dress, I started to ‘spot the potential’.
That,to me, is what ‘thrifting’ is all about.

Voila! Ready for the Hamptons. LOL
