Styling Nautical Stripes With A Vintage Twist

Yay! It’s Friday!! Give me a F, give me a R, Give me ………… OK, that’s enough of that. Let’s get on with the post shall we?

If you follow me in Instagram you may have seen a pic I posted a couple of weeks ago of me wearing particularly cool sunglasses. I wore them on an awesomely sunny day in Ramsgate. Remember the sun? Big yellow ball in the sky? Radiates heat? No? Well, stick around for about ten months, and if you’re really lucky you might see it for about three days next Summer. You’ve got to just love the British weather!

Anywho, I just adore styling nautical stripes, but on this particular day I wanted to add a touch of vintage glam. Enter my glasses of much coolness and a retro style hair scarf and voilà – nautical stripes with a vintage twist!

The tee, jeans and shoes were, in themselves, quite a simple outfit. I adore how adding just a few unusual accessories can completely change the look of an outfit. I deliberately bought the tee in a larger size as I wanted to add the seam opening on the sides. Much cooler that a fitted tee!

How about you, do you accessorise to give your outfits a fresh look?
