Nautical Style Inspiration…


Today I’m wearing a billowy top from ASOS White, skinny Citizens of Humanity high rise cropped flair jeans, red Primark wedge shoes, and my buy of the day, a versatile and durable Next clutch, which takes its inspiration from JW Anderson.


When styling my three lovely ladies this morning I focused on how stripes can be flattering, fun, and fresh for summer.


Paula, First Look

Balancing a color-blocked navy Finery top with classic Zara trousers in the same color worked to elongate Paula’s legs, a pair of fashion forward, chunky-heeled white Next shoes tied the look together, and a Next bag in just the right shade of red added a pop of color.

Daphne, Second Look

Many petite woman wonder, “can I wear a culotte, I’m only…?” Daphne’s answer for her 5′ 2” frame is a resounding yes – this Mango nautical jumper with delicate sleeve details tucks into flattering high-waisted, wide-legged red M&S trousers (with a fab white button detail), and a feminine gingham heel from TopShop reminds that patterns (stripes and gingham) can coexist with the right strong color between them (in this case, red).

Mary, Third Look 

Figure-flattering jumpsuits are great for summer, so easy yet sophisticated, and this blue Monsoon stunner is no exception. Teamed with a short white cape jacket from Zara (pictured in black above) for breathability, and timelessly cool embellished leather white trainers from Dune (pictured in black above), its full speed ahead.
