I love being near the water. It does’t matter if it’s a lake or an ocean, I could sit and sunbathe waterside all day — and be happy as a clam (as long as I have at least SPF 85)!
The other week I wrote about how I love nautical fashion — and how you can get the look. I told you that I have lots of nautical-inspired clothes in my closet, so I wanted to show you one of my sea-inspired looks! Christopher and I went to the lake this past weekend, and I wore my nautical best:
[Sperry Top-Sider Tasslefish: c/o Planetshoes.com]
[Striped top: Charlotte Russe (old)]
[Bag: H&M (old)]
[Bracelets: Banana Republic & Handmade]
Planetshoes.com sent me these Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes, and they are SO perfect for a day at the lake! I chose the Tasslefish style because in the past, I had problems with Sperry shoes untying. The tassles on the pair I chose are CUTE — and they can’t come untied. I’d say that’s a win for nautical fashion.
I also wore a navy and white striped top that I’ve had for a couple years. I love its scoop-necked bow collar and ties at the bottom.
I carried my bucket handbag that has a white rope drawstring, and I wore a couple bangle bracelets. The gold bangle with the shell is something I pieced together. The shell charm is a vintage pendant that I added to a plain gold bangle bracelet.
We had such a fun day at the lake! The weather was perfect: sunny and near 80 degrees. We packed a lunch, hiked around, and Christopher did a little fly fishing. We rounded out the day with some ice cream. It was a taste of summer during March!
