Going Overboard #giveaway
Posted February 16, 2014 by Texas Two Steppin' - 13 comments
If you’ve read a few of my prior blogs, you know that while most people get Spring Fever I get Sea Fever. Right now I am dreaming of sun, waves and salt air and have become sorta obsessed with all things nautical. So when I stopped at Charming Charlie the other day, I was able to find a few inexpensive accessories that gave me a polished look that suggested I was going yachting.
Now, when you are doing a nautical theme, you have to be careful so you don’t look like you are celebrating Independence Day a few months too early. That’s why I picked items that weren’t a set or too matchy-matchy. I also plan to wear the necklace, which makes a subtle statement, in unexpected ways. For example, I’ve wanted to try the “mixing prints” trend and think that the striped necklace with a yellow and white polka dot pullover, jeggings, and boots would be cute. For work, the entire set would perk up a cobalt blue oxford, tan pencil skirt and some nude heels. But the outfit I’m really excited to try the necklace with is for weekends–rolled, faded jeans, white oxfords, pink T-shirt and neutral cardigan.
Note: While Charming Charlie does have a website, if you have a store nearby, stop in for the shopping experience. There is jewelry, purses, tops, scarves, hats and heels. Because pieces aren’t expensive it is a great way to indulge in a trend guilt-free (though it was hard to keep myself from going overboard with purchases). But, the best part is that the store is organized by color. Trust me; you’ll love it!
What other outfits do you suggest trying and have you seen any other great nautical looks?
