My Style: Blue & Steel

Friday, August 9, 2013

Trying to figure out what to call this look was quite a challenge. I thought maybe "Breakfast in a Construction Zone" or something about sailing because of the nautical stripes, but then again I'm not on a boat. So I settled with a reference to Zoolander which I think accurately describes the mood.

Almost anything with stripes I will wear. I saw this jumper in Rag & Bone, and I lost my mind. I had to have it. And thank my lucky stars, it was on sale. Normally mixing patterns isn't my thing, but these floral platforms were too cute not to wear with the romper. I wanted something that felt light and airy like a vacation in Nantucket. To top it all off, this sky blue nail color is almost the exact hue of the signature Toms blue. Pure coincidence.

The Look
Romper: Rag & Bone
Shoes: Jellypop
Shades: Toms
Necklace and Bracelet: thrift store find
Ring: MKL
Nails: "I Need a Refresh-Mint" Wet n Wild

The striped romper and my short hair cut look some boyish, but The gold accessories and floral platforms add a little touch of girly. Such a great look when you're grabbing waffles and mimosas with your friends on the weekend. Now if only I could get that vacation on a yacht I've been dreaming about.
