Unconventional nautical


I love a nautical-inspired look, but sometimes it can get a little boring and repetitive - we've all seen the anchors and the red, white, and blue color-blocking.  So why not mix it up?!

Here, I did a bit of pattern mixing with a traditionally nautical red/white striped skirt and a blue floral shirt.  For an unexpected pop of color, I added some fun yellow wedges.  Instead of the typical anchor jewelry, I accessorized with knotted rope earrings and a seahorse ring - each nautically-inspired, but out of the ordinary.  Of course, no nautical look is complete without the perfect shade or red lipstick.

What do you think?  Would you wear this out-of-the-box nautical look?
