We are officially half way through the Summer of 2015…. and I am so hoping that at least once you have pulled together a nautical oufit. If not… I am hoping to inspire you today!! It is so easy to go Nautical – Red, White & Blue are our base colors, add in stripes, anchors, sequins, a navy double breasted blazer, a crisp white button down (mens or womens), a straw clutch or tote, some white Keds, red Louboutins, black or navy lace espadrilles, loafers, a knit skirt…. the list goes on. I think you get the picture.
We kept it simple today as we headed down the stairs in the Neiman Marcus parking garage… hahahaha! We started off today’s “Nautical Pennies & Posh” with a Zara sale top that came in around $19 and our black lace espadrilles from Target ($29) then we added in the Posh with a white Valentino knit skirt from the archives of my closet. If I remember correctly, it cost in the vicinity of $1500 and it was worth every penny….. as it looks as good today as when I bought it 6 years ago. Please remember… when buying the classics…. go for the posh!
With a Sailor’s Salute… and some Seaworthy Love,
Ahoy ye Mates!! Have been and I feel always will be in Deep Love with everything and anything Nautical! Maybe because I love the water or sailing , the Look is always Chic and Fresh!! So sea-worthy LD, love it all!
Nautical is my all-time favorite style.
Love the Nautical theme! I love the locations you have been using for your photo shoots! Pics are great!
I have a similar skirt and it has really lasted the test of time and seasons.
I lived in Cape Cod for many years and this is totally the style.
A little bit preppy, a little bit beachy…I love this look.
All you need now is a sailboat in your pictures!
Edgar is amazing and you are lucky to get to work with him!
What a super cute top! I love Zara and their prices!
Pennies and Posh is my favorite blog to date!
Isn’t it amazing when you put one posh item with a pennies item, you think its ALL posh?
I live in these skirts in the summer!
Stripes are almost a fashion faux pas if worn wrong but you have it right on.
I am so embarrassed of my varicose veins so I can’t pull off the skirt but I think I could replace it with a cute pair of preppy navy chinos!
Chic, chic, chic!!!
