Today's Style Me April prompt was "Oh Hello Sailor," and I struggled mightily to come up with an outfit that was even remotely nautical. As it is, it's a pretty subtle nod to nautical style.
Once again, I was stumped until I actually opened up my closet and started rifling through the hangers. It's amazing the things you discover when you actually look through your clothes — which, I guess, is one of the aims of this challenge.
This dress was an impulse buy — I couldn't resist the pretty stripe pattern. However, as I'm wearing it today, I'm realizing that it's a shape/cut that I'm not really comfortable with. So, if anyone's interested, this could be yours for $12 shipped! I'm cross-posting it on my Instagram sale account, so if you're interested, comment there with your email address and I'll send you a Paypal invoice. All the details about size, etc., will be there too.
I reached once again for my cropped white cardigan — this thing has proven to be one of the most useful items in my wardrobe. I wear it year-round, and I love how wearing it open like this kind of gives it the look of a jacket. Someday I am going to spill something on it and ruin it. And on that day, I will cry.
White cropped cardigan: Old Navy, thrifted
