I LOVE the nautical trend. I loved it before it was cool. ;) I've always adored the ocean, the beach, seashells, ships, ect. And a few years ago, my best friend and I decided that an (imaginary) tall, dark and handsome sailor was the love of my life. Oh yes. Be jealous. :) So I adore the whole nautical theme. Partly because I adore my imaginary sailor boy. Kidding. Sort of.... ;)
And in case you were wondering, this skirt is the mystery project I hinted at the other day in my post about dyeing. I found five yard of this wonderful striped fabric at Goodwill for $5 and knew it would be a wonderful skirt. And I still have a bunch left for other projects! I don't have a tutorial for you, because I was just kind of winging it, but this is good one. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, but I'm debating making the skirt a little narrower because it tends to look a little too full around the hips. Thoughts?
Stripes are very sailor-esque, so I paired my new skirt with a shirt with an anchor design on it. (One of my favorite, most comfortable shirts, by the way.) I added a belt to pull it all together. And of course, a fish tail braid.
I would love to style this skirt with a white t-shirt and cardigan or something too, but I need to buy a white tee first. I know. Shocking as it is, I do not own a white t-shirt. That needs to change.
How do you feel about the nautical trend?
