EB:EW, Nautical

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Of course I'm taking part in this EB:EW- Nautical = Stripes = half my wardrobe. I can't wait to see what everyone does with this prompt.

I very purposefully kept it toned down so as not to get too overzealous and go to work in a bad costume. And preppy is a lovely style, but I didn't want to look like I should be at the helm of a yacht circa 1990, complete with cotton striped tee, high-waisted khaki walking shorts, braided leather belt, sweater draped over the shoulders, and a chin-length bob with feathered bangs.

You can totally see her, can't you?

Instead, the stipes are a subtle underlayer, ocean turquoise in the belt and a nautical charm bracelet. I'mma guess this is a more work-appropriate version of the trend.
