Daily Threads: Nautical




top: banana republic outlet
pants: c/o karen kane
shoes: bandolino 
bag: target 

So maybe this isn't your classic nautical look, but I definitely feel as if I should be on a boardwalk, on a pier, or at least near some large body of salty water. Hearing the waves, smelling the sunscreen, eating the fresh seafood... I need to get to the beach. Now. Wouldn't that be so nice? Oh, and as a side note, I general don't like seafood. Tuna and shrimp are ok, but I stop there. I usually don't even go there - but every now and then I can do it.

I thought reminiscing of the beach would help me avoid talking about the weather, but it doesn't. It's hot here. We are in the 90's, people - and no, I'm not talking Gonna Make You Sweat 90's. Although,  the 90's will make you sweat. Wait, what are we talking about?

What a beautifully simple, classic outfit. I love how you paired nude shoes with it - makes your legs look miles long (though you're pretty tall to begin with.) Your writing made me crave time at the beach, which unfortunately just doesn't exist here in Dallas!

I love any nautically inspired looks, and this is no exception!

Funny you should mention that song, recently got into a debate about who it was by, and if it was a one hit wonder (which it sort of was, or so I argued.)

Melissa said...

You look so fresh and chic. I love the neutral heels instead of the expected white. Love this outfit!

Wish we had a target in Norway. People always seem to find so pretty stuff there. Amazing bag and outfit.

Hi Linley! I am new to your blog. Is the top from BR outlet recent?

Linley said...

@Alicia - hey there! glad you stopped by my blog! I got this shirt at the outlet about two months ago - back in March. It was in Hilton Head, GA.

I love the pants and the top! You look great, Linley.

I'm not a big fan of seafood. I do eat salmon and most (but not all) fish, and shrimp and crab, but I cannot touch shellfish, they totally gross me out.
