Blue and White Nod to Nautical

As soon as the latest 30 for 30 challenge ended, I ran to Marshalls and treated myself to a few items from their sale racks. This top was one of those pieces. I liked the cut of it and I like how it mixed nautical-inspired stripes with a subtle floral and rhinestones. It’s a denim-y blue so I paired it with a denim skirt, but will go well with skinny jeans too (blue, red, or even yellow ones).

Top: Marshall’s
Skirt: Dress Barn
Shoes: Bongo

Does a striped shirt and dotted shoes count as pattern mixing? I’m trying to master that trend.

I really love these adorable shoes, but admittedly, I don’t wear them a lot. They’re very comfortable and I”m determined to remix them into my wardrobe more often. They’ll look cute with a red dress. What do you think?

  1. I would say that counts as pattern mixing…it’s just the subtler side.
    I love those shoes, and Yes they would look amazing with a red dress!

  2. I love the whole outfit! Nautical is so fresh and summery. The asymmetrical top with diagonal stripes is very stylish, shows off your tattoo perfectly! The polkadot shoes complete the look from top to toe!

  3. How darling are those shoes??? Fab!!

  4. I do love the shoes! I promise to wear them more often 🙂
