I honestly cannot think of a better theme for May's EBEW than nautical inspired style! Year after year there's just something about the early spring that has me instantly drooling over stripes, deck shoes and all things seaside. Not exactly sure what prompts my annual obsession but I do know that without fail I do come out of May with up to 3 more striped pieces added to my wardrobe.
I'm not sure what the most nautical part of my outfit is. My tights and nails are sea foam, which is arguably nautical, although perhaps not in the traditional sense. The striped blazer is a good contender, as are the boat-shoe inspired wedges and the high-waisted sailor shorts [although a navy pair would have really brought it home]. However, I really think it's my sea urchin necklace from RunFree RunWild that brought the whole look together and took home and sailor prize. I mean what could possibly more nautical than a little friend from the sea worn ever so elegantly on a chain?
