Girl Sailor

Girl Sailor

I've pretty much already worn this outfit. Forget the fact that it's my new top, the white capris and a striped top were done last month.

Almost Americana

Oh well. This time I clearly pushed the nautical element, with my anchor necklace, starfish necklace, and starfish ring (which isn't in the photos because I took it off to do dishes and left it by the sink).

 Dispite this being the seventh striped shirt I have acquired, I still need one more. Seriously.
I need one where the stripes don't go all the way to the top, preferably with 3/4 sleeves. I'd like this sequined one from J.Crew, but at $72 that's not going to happen.


Without sequins and $15 would be just fine. Know of any?

The shoe quest continues. I'm now finding it to be so hard! I just want a shoe that makes my heart pound, and a price that doesn't... make my heart pound. 
Two new contenders are shoeaday's very affordable nine west option ($35):



and this Jessica Simpson I found today ($46).

Still on the table are the Aldo ($50) and the French Connection ($60).

Another strange and sudden must get now item: a lion belt.


Just popped into my head this morning that I needed one, and I anxiously awaited my 10 am break so that I could look for one on ebay. Found one right away and the auction ends in a little while. I hope I win!
Have you heard about the Surprise Ball Exchange at Oh, My Darling? I've signed up! The participants will each get a random name and must fill a ball up with random trinkets of fun and mail it off at the end of the month.


I must go, Burn Notice is on in a few minutes! And thanks to everyone who left me sweet comments on my last post, Wednesday was a bit better, and today after a brief freak-out over a non-printing printer (that turned out to not even be my fault) was much better. And tomorrow is Friday!!!!

I love the sailor theme!!! Love all those nautical accessories. I really like the Jessica Simpson shoes that you covet. :)

Ali said...

I saw a shirt like that the other day but don't remember where, hmmmm~ haha but I love your little sailor theeeeeeeme, it's cute. :D I have so many striped shirts now I feel like I'm re-doing outfits, too. ; w;

La Fille D'or said...

You look so cute you can never have too many stripes! hehe I too have a collection of striped tops. They have some tops like the J. crew minus the sequins at Zara - I got one it was about $19 if I remember correctly.

Also- Lion belt! Did you win it? hehe I have one too! Seen here http://iwasthegoldengirl.blogspot.com/2010/05/chambray-kinda-day.html
it's vintage and has gotten a bit tarnished - i need to find out what to clean it up with!

Lyddie my vote goes to the Jezabel Sandal, it's such a great shoe, I'd buy it myself if I could walk in heels that high (anything past 3" is very high for me). I love this outfit better than last months because it flatters your figure the best! You have such a tiny waist I envy it! hehehe =D

casual ambiguity said...

that top is SO flattering for stripes, wow!

wonderfelle.com said...

That striped top is really flattering - I'm totally scared of stripes but I like the mix of directions! I fell in love with a Christopher Ross lion belt on ebay awhile ago... never made it mine though :( I love Burn Notice - is it just me or is Michael's acting getting progressively worse though? I love Fiona though, she's fabulous!

April said...

Ooh, a lion belt would be perfect!

Beth said...

Great outfit! I love white capris in the summer- they look cute with everything

Elaine said...

Wow. Totally want white capris and a flowy black and white striped top and an anchor necklace! I love that you did two takes on the nautical look - one is classic and clean, the other is summery and fun!

I know how you feel about the stripes conundrum. I found a cardi at old navy that meet your requirments, http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=26195&vid=1&pid=696876. It's pretty awesome.

Also those nine west shoes are EXACTLY what I was going to recommend to you! My professor was wearing them the other day and they were super cute.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Try H&M. They have striped tanks, at least, and you can layer. =) Love the shortsleeved one especially!

uber chic for cheap found a shirt like that at Gap, on sale. So it's supposed to be pretty cheap. Just so you know. Cute look, btw! I totally need a sailor outfit too

Julia said...

You look like a goddess in these pictures! That shirt is the perfect way to do stripes -- a little eclectic, a little nautical, a lot of class. Superb!

Melissa said...

Thanks so much for the sweet birthday wishes! And for spreading the word about the surprise ball exchange!!! It's just gratitude all around, haha.

Lorena said...

Haha, I get weird cravings too. I now want a gumball machine for my house. So I can eat gum all day.
I really like how you did the nautical look adding those necklaces....

Frances Joy said...

Love the striped top! My jaw may have dropped, I love it that much. And the lion belt is awesome. Hope you get it! Also, my vote goes to those Aldo shoes.

Jessica said...

Asta said...

Amazing outfits! Stripes just happen to be one of my recent obsessions, and I have been looking for something like your striped top for a few months now but so far, to no avail. How do you always manage to find such great things?:)
*sighing enviously*:)

Eyeliah said...

And then you also threw in the red sandals, very nautical and I like it.
