Nautical

These striped shorts from Old Navy probably would have been a better purchase earlier in the summer, but I couldn't find them in the store (I went to two locations!) so I finally ordered them on line and then had to wait for what seemed like ages for them to arrive.

So I styled them simply for a day at the beach with all my favorite nautical pieces.
I sat in the sun and read the NY Times style mag cover to cover (and by read, I mean look at the clothes).

It's the last day of August! How could this ever happen? I feel like I spend my whole life just waiting for it to be summer again.

I agree with Courtney--you are the Nautical Queen and I love that anchor necklace. The shorts are very cute--totally worth the wait!

I just scored a beautiful white vee neck Tahari tee for $5 at Marshalls very similar to yours. I don't own any shorts, but will try the cute partial tuck with a pair o' ankle pants :)

Oh, how I adore your nautical looks! Those shorts are adorable, and I'm sure you'll be able to transition them into fall with some tights in a clever way, since you're super clever and all. :D

That necklace is so pretty, too! I've been wanting some anchor earrings... Lyddie, your style is influencing me to buy things, I swear!

Alissa said...

Well I never saw these at all at my Old Navy because I so would have snatched these up!

Ali Hval said...

&& I did not use any external lighting! I just put him on a piece of white paper outside and increased the brightness on my computer a lot to edit them. :D

Elaine Hearn said...

What a great look on you! The necklace is gorgeous! I've a few magazines that I just bought yesterday to give a good "browse," and read through! :) Have a nice w/e.

Casual chic at its finest!! The addition of the rope bracelet and tote bag just put it over the top.

Have a great weekend.

Love how you kept this look simple with the white tee and shorts. Perfect for a day at the beach.

Absolutely stunning. Nautical styling always looks so chic

Alex Elizabeth said...

Just saw these when I was in the store with Nnenna! Old Navy had some really good shorts this year.

You need to be on a boat, for real. Or at a lobster bake in Maine.

Cindi said...

I absolutly adore how you styled these shorts... The bracelet and necklace are amazing details! I've always been quite fond of the sailor look for summer :)

I love this last day of summer look. I made the knotted bracelets all summer long after you sent me instructions, but none of mine turned out as lovely as the one you are wearing.
