Backless Nautical Navy

Ooo!!  It’s summertime and I have to admit, I’ve been baring my arms and legs much more than I ever had in pervious summers.

Blogging has gotten me braver in my outfit choices and more confident to rock things I’d normally shy away from.  Like this fantastic dress I picked up cross-border shopping recently … I was immediately drawn to it on the rack.  Buuuuut upon picking it up I noticed that an important piece of fabric was missing ….that critical piece of fabric that covers up my giant bra clasps and that loveable back roll that gets formed upon wearing said giant bra.

Doesn’t this dress just SCREAM: Summer!!!  I just love it!

The hi-lo skirt is perfect for petite beauties as there will be zero ‘tripping-up-the-stairs’ incidents as there might be with lengthy maxis (least it’s the case for moi…seems I’m terribly clumsy).  I’ve already professed my love and devotion to all the nautical-ness in fashion since the Spring…so this dress just needed to be mine!   Click here and here and here and here for all my previous nautical love posts friends!

A special shoutout to the lovely coral floral necklace and earring set I’m wearing in this post.  Picked it up from this cute lil’ boutique called One Girl Who on St. Clair West in Toronto.  Recently rediscovered it among all my jewellery….. doesn’t it just add to the summertime fun feeling of this outfit?  🙂

#OOTD: Anchors Away!

 

I’ve gone overboard for Anchors!

You maybe remember me going on and on about this cutie red anchor sweater in a recent post20140304-172330.jpg

Well I found this fab lil’ navy pencil skirt with red anchor print from Old Navy too – it was on sale for $17 (Reg. #25…still a steal!).  I’ve already worn it so much, I just haven’t posted about it. So here I go!20140327-122158.jpg

Mostly I’ve worn this skirt in a more dressed down weekend look – like below with this lacy-back sweatshirt  I picked up on sale from Pennington’s around Boxing Day Sales time.

Pennington’s MBLM line seems to size things very generously – I was very excited to find out that I was a size 0 in this sweatshirt that I had to Intsagram about it immediately from the change-room!

To take this cutie-pie skirt to the office, I decided to mix patterns pairing the anchors with a collared blue pinstriped shirt (DressBarn ages ago).

I belted it and wore my red pumps (from Aldo) and my cherry accessory set to complete the office-day look.

I really love how it turned out!  What do you think?
