preppy pastel

forever 21 hat, sweater, jeans, and necklaces (worn as belts), asos clutch, boutique 9 heels, vintage bracelet, gifted ring

For some reason I’ve never liked wearing nautical-themed clothing.  Maybe it’s because I know nothing about boating, the sea, or what exactly looks good with navy blue, and I don’t want to pretend.  But I went against my instincts when I bought this sweater a few years ago, and I’m happy with it.  The sailboat motif looks so friendly, and the colors aren’t your typical red, white, and navy.  Today I paired it with jeans in a matching periwinkle blue and a few necklaces worn as belts to add another splash of color.  (Ok, it feels a little like I’m wearing a belly chain, hello 1996!)


Also not sure why I closed my eyes in the last picture…
