Double up

Double the stripes means double the nautical fun! Plus the sailors knot bracelet and starfish ring - it's nautical x4 and I love it.

For the record, I had to iron this skirt this morning. I ironed, in the AM. Before work, even before coffee. I'm not saying I deserve a medal or anything, but it would be nice.

I totally have that shirt, and I've never thought to wear it tucked in. Thanks for the inspiration!

Rachel said...

Good for you, I haaaate ironing! That does deserve a medal in my book! The stripes together are beautiful! Cute dog too!!

Style Journey said...

I hate to iron, that's probably why half my wardrobe doesn't get worn! So yes, you get a medal, lol :-)

This skirt is really cute and I love the striped top paired with it. You have no fear with your pattern mixing, which I love!

Chloe looks so cute in all the pics, but especially that first one. I can never get Wally (family dog) to look at the camera. He's always wondering off in the corner of the photo somewhere, (usually with the tail-side toward the lens!)
I love your double stripes, and definitely double points for ironing - ever - let alone in the a.m.

I hate ironing. Have you tried garment steamers? My husband had luck with those de-wrinkling his dress shirt.

Julie Del said...

You totally deserve a medal for the ironing! And the double stripes and starfishy are super cute!

You are so funny! Quadruple nautical! You remind me of my friend who attends college in the other side of the country (booo...:( ). She just loves ANYTHING nautical; the more, the merrier! Goodness, I would not even wanna try to iron in the AM. I'm afraid I'll be too sleepy to even notice what I'm doing. I may even burn myself...eeks.

You are an expert pattern combiner, seriously! Love the stripe-on-stripe and all the nautical elements. And ironing in the morning? Yeah, you definitely deserve something special for that.

Kelsey said...

striped two ways and pulled off together so well! outstandingly chic <3

simplychic said...

mixing stripes is a fantastic idea! got to try it...

Gray Skies said...

I love this look! And I like that it's not overtly nautical - it's very subtle.

Jenn said...

I really love the blues of that skirt! I've never seen a darker hued striped anything that I liked, that is, up until I saw your skirt.

If I had a medal I would give you one. I hate ironing too - so half of my wrinkled clothes go unworn :(

Great stripe and stripe combination!

Cara said...

Yes, you do deserve a medal. One thing I miss about living at home is that my dad would do my ironing. My solution in the last few years has been to just not wear anything I need to iron!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I wish I had more stripes so I could wear them together like this! Ugh I am like the worst ironer ever. I once went through this phase of ironing all my shirts right before I wore them.

You should get an award! If something needs to be ironed in the morning, it probably means I'll be wearing something else. And I'm loving the quadruple dose of nautical too! Seriously, can I just steal this whole outfit? I love every bit of it!
