Fashion Outfit of the Week: Going Nautical

Navy Dress, $88 Ann Taylor
 Time to blog about where my true love lies: fashion.

My best friend is getting married at the end of June, so obviously - as Maid of Honor - I'm required to dress to impress. Not that she said this, but it's pretty much assumed.

Anyway, her Rehearsal Dinner - which is more like cocktails - is taking place on a Friday evening on a boat cruise in Florida. What better way to glam it up on a boat than by going nautical? I found this Navy Dress with White Stripes at Ann Taylor, which was having a 40% off sale and so I got this dress for $49 (originally $88) this weekend while birthday shopping with my mother.

I was a little weary as there were only 2 dresses of this style left, and both were XS. Yikes. But, I tried it on anyway, and it fit like a glove. The style, pattern and rouching in the front prevents it from looking too tight and bulgy on your body. It's also made of a breathable jersey material, which doesn't feel tight at all.

Fioni Red Strappy Sandal Wedges, $26.99 - Payless
The big question is: what to wear for shoes? I hate flats, so that's not happening. When I think navy and white, I automatically want to complete the trio with red, but not too in-your-face red. So I did some searching and found these Strappy Red Sandal Wedges from Fioni on Payless. I love and olwn several pairs of Fioni, and I love the Payless style: not to mention, they always have my freaky shoe size 11 in stock.

This match is perfect. The touch of red and the "cork" of the wedge pulls together the nautical look without going overboard (HA get it?). I approve.

Any suggestions on jewelry? I am first going to browse the selections of 6 In the Shipyard, or maybe will just make something to go with it. I'm thinking simple: maybe a pair of my Silver Starfish Charm Earrings will do...
