Deep blue sea

This is my second outfit inspired by my desire for a tropical getaway; this time I let the ocean serve as my influence. Dark blues layered on top of one another, ever changing, ever moving.
Deep blue sea
The striped skirt was an easy choice, and I got to play up the nautical elements with the woven belt and anchor necklace.

Now, this is very important; I found this pair of shoes in TJMaxx the other day and fell madly in love but they did not have them in a size 8! With the determination of one of Cinderella's ugly step-sisters I tried to force my foot into the size 7, but much like Drizella and Anastasia, I was not able too. If anyone knows where to find these in a size 8, please let me know!
The brand is G by Guess and the name of the shoe is Farleigh-T
 
Help! Inspector Shoeseau? Are you there?

Haha. Still chuckling over Inspector Shoeseau! I adore these shoes. You've made me want to try my TJ immediately for an 8.5!
Ps. loving this tropical inspiration the last two days. The nautical accessories are perfect for your ocean look!

Rebecca said...

Those shoes are really cute. I'm an 8 too, and it can be hard to find deals on shoes.

A beautiful blue outfit which makes me think of the ocean..you did a wonderful job!!

TrophyBoutique said...

oh those shoes are dreamy. But not quite as dreamy as you in this blue color. You can really wear any color at all, can't you?

I love how out of everything going on in the outfit, the earrings really pop and catch your eye right away

Emily Saltzberg said...

BEAUTIFUL!! I love the anchor necklace paired with the belt.

Courtney said...

Great skirt, was it a recent purchase?

Rachel said...

I really like how this nautical outfit is a bit more subtle than a lot of the other styles lately. I love the bolder ones as well, but I like how this one's softer. :D

Sarah Dee said...

You must find those shoes!! They are too cute!

I just laughed out loud when I got to Inspector Shoeseau hahahaaaa. I feel as if you're destined for a tropical getaway sometime soon! Although I think this outfit would be perfect for stylish cruise to Alaska (although that would ne in the wrong direction I guess).

kileen said...

You look gorgeous in blue! I really love the stripes.

Anne said...

This might be one of my favorite outfits of yours! Have I said that already? Seriously, I love the way the blue stripes of your skirt match your shoes, and then all of the navy throughout. So cute! And you're so ready to sail away.

monica said...

i love that gold belt!

Jen HaHA said...

I love how your outfit is monochrome but you don't look like a blueberry. It totally works! Love those shoes!

I love this look! The skirt is adorable, those heels are covetable, and I wore a similar necklace/color story the other day. So cute!

Inspector Shoeseau here!! If I spot those mothers in my neighborhood in an 8 you can call them yours. I'm going through Marshall's in a day or two, and will try to drop into a TJ Maxx in the OC that's pretty massive.

I need my shoe sniffing cats on the case, but sadly they have wussed out due to the 40 degree temperatures.

Holy crow those shoes are the shiz!!

xo,
Carrie.
I mean Inspector Shoeseau

I know how you feel needing a tropical getaway although we don't have snow here. I love navy blue, it looks amazing on you. Those shoes are great too, I hope you manage to find some.

Lovely outfit! It's fun without being too self-consciously kooky. As for the shoes... sometimes you can stretch leather out by putting ziploc bags of water inside them then putting them in the freezer. I've not tried it myself though.

sofi moukidou said...

Moniek said...

your outfit is adorable! can I ask if you got that necklace recently? I've been looking for nautical jewelry online on etsy but it's a tad pricey which I know F21 is not. Thanks! -adeline

Mmm tropical getaway. I can see the inspiration, and it works despite the cold temperatures and snow! Genius. Love the anchor necklace especially.

Sorry about the shoe issue! I haven't seen them anywhere and our TJMaxx is horrible, so I don't think we'd have them here. Good for you for not buying them, though. I have a tendency to buy shoes I like if they're on sale, even if they don't fit. My feet shrunk a whole size a few years ago, so I like to think that maybe they'll fit...someday.

Amber Blue Bird said...

love the inspiration look here, i wish it was warm enough for a getaway to our local beach. I hope you can find those shoes in your size, they really a great looking pair of kicks!

Lorena said...

I like your inspired by nature posts!
I can totally see the ocean in this outfit and the small sailor like details such as the gold tone belt...

buttonjar said...

Love the skirt and shoes. You've got such a knack for color - absolutely stunning.

7 !!! I am so envious posting here with my 10 feet :)

Kavery said...

Can't believe how well-matched your tights and skirt are. Shoe size....hmm, I'm a 7.

Gracey said...

Hee on the Inspector Shoeseau. Hilarious. Sorry I can't help you and your tiny feet (I wear a size 10), but I hope you find them. They're very cute.

And I love this outfit - the skirt is perfect and I just love tonal matching.

Eyeliah said...

such pretty inspirations, you are making me miss my closet (lol). your anchor necklace is the perfect final touch.

kelseywilliams said...

I love this outfit!! Linley at Dwelling & Telling found those shoes at TJ Maxx, too. They are amazing!!! Hopefully you are able to find them in your size soon.

Claire said...

I love your skirt! I'm obsessed with stripes, and that skirt is fantastic! And I can see why you wanted those shoes. They're adorable! Good luck finding them in your size.

I just saw a very similar- though not as cute- pair at Payless. Hope this helps!
