Finally it really feels like Spring! After schlepping around town all winter in Uggs and scuzzy sweatpants, I am so happy to be able to finally break out my warm weather gear and reintroduce my legs to a razor. So to continue Karin’s “Dress like Blair Waldorf” post, I decided to chat about my favorite Spring trend (which isn’t much of a trend since it happens year after year) — the nautical look. I absolutely love sailor clothes.
If it was socially acceptable to wear my husband’s old Navy hats and anchor cufflinks on trips to the grocery store — I’d do it. I think I love dressing like a sailor as much (if not more) than actual sailing. The stripes, the anchors, the ropes – oh my! It’s so darn cute and classic.
In fact, last year, while attending the Annapolis boat show, several people asked me if I was in costume — as if I were some sort of maritime showgirl. It was one of my proudest moments. I wore yellow sailor pants, a shirt with little navy anchors all over it, top-siders, and giant seagull earrings. I was like a parody of a person attending a boat show. I even contemplated donning an eye-patch and peg leg for the occasion, but Grey told me that was over the top. Go figure.
So with fair winds in the forecast for the next week — I think I’m ready to bust out my salty suiting! Yay!
