A Very Nautical “Pennies & Posh”


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!

Ralph Lauren & Forever 21

This edition of Pennies & Posh bring us to Ralph Lauren and Forever 21. Ralph on top…. Forever on the bottom. The amazing gold loafers we are featuring today on “Pennies & Posh” are some of the best quality shoes in this price range to ever grace my feet….Full price at $29.00! I am seriously not sure how they were able to make such a well built shoe for this price! The quality rivals a beautiful Prada loafer.



Add in our sparkling Ralph Lauren top at around $5000.00… and it’s Posh at it’s finest. This crystal encrusted silk top is just about as elegant as it gets. Mixed together you would never in a million years know how inexpensive the loafers were. That’s the beauty of mixing your expensive pieces with your inexpensive pieces. Your Posh makes your Pennies look like you broke the bank putting the outfit together.
