Being near the ocean always inspires me to make style waves with a nautical feel. A weekend trip to the beach became the perfect backdrop for blog photo shoot in Lewes, DE.
I’ve said it before, but you can never go wrong with stripes. They are classic, timeless and can work for any body type. This crisp navy and ivory top from Ann Taylor Loft is a great wardrobe staple. It works here with Ann Taylor khaki shorts, but would also pair well with cropped khaki trousers and pumps for work or boyfriend jeans and sandals on the weekend.
Sight seeing around town is much more comfortable in these beige and gold leather sandals from Anne Klein. The neutral color will adapt well with many pieces in my wardrobe. And a nude-colored shoe elongates the legs and makes you appear taller.
To finish out the look and top off the nautical feel, I accessorized with red accents. The red and gold J Crew inspired “bubble” bib necklace and my favorite red envelope clutch were the perfect compliment to this sea-worthy outfit.
