I always think of the Navy when I see stripes. I’m not even sure why, the uniforms are not even stripped. Oh well, here is my take on nautical. I did not add any anchors, even though anchor jewelry has been really popular. I have a lot of vintage jewelry in red, white, & blue, but I wanted to go another route. Hence, my blue and gold outfit.Gold spruces up any outfit. It takes this blue and white sweater that I bought last year at Old Navy and makes it look elegant. Easy, peasy. All the gold jewelry here is not “real” gold, just costume items. I had a housekeeper relieve me of my real gold a couple of years ago. Any nice jewelry I own is now in a safe deposit box. I love it when you look like a great deal of effort went into an outfit, and all you did was put on a sweater, a pair of jeans, and a blazer. These jeans are hand-me-downs from my daughter. She wears a 36 inseam, and I think these were too short for her. I just roll up the hem and they are perfect for me.My Stella & Dot purse, in its unzipped state, looked great with this outfit. I love that the name of this purse is “Hello Gorgeous”. I have carried it before and you can read about that here. It is no longer offered by Stella & Dot, but you can usually find it on Ebay. The shoes I have were Marc Fisher’s and yes, I got them at the OVC overstock outlet for 25.00. They are beautiful AND comfortable. You can barely see the ankle strap peeking out from under my ankle cuff. These are suede and I would call the color buckskin. This is one of MY favorite outfits that I have posted since starting the blog. What do you think?
