A Little Bit of Nautical in My Life

Sorry about the title. I heard “Mambo No. 5” on the radio right before I uploaded these photos.

So I really like nautical things like navy and white stripes, anchors, and boat shoes, but normally only one at a time. I feel like a phony wearing too much nautical-inspired gear at once considering my boat knowledge is slim.

Starboard. Sail. Ahoy, matey. Iceberg: right ahead!

That’s about the extent of my expertise. As you can see above, I broke my rule recently and wore navy stripes AND navy Sperrys at the same time. But somehow I have a feeling no one’s going to mistake me for a ship captain – except maybe for a Carnival cruise ship captain, because Carnival seems to have pretty low standards these days.

The Perks of a Statement Trench

I love a good statement jacket or trench. It’s a good spring layer, and it makes getting dressed easy. I can throw on jeans and a t-shirt and let the trench do the talking. Because sometimes I just don’t have that much to say. Like right now for example.
