A sailor is an artist whose medium is the wind.- Webb Chiles
Stripes, anchors, dots, rolled hems and gold accents. I can’t stop think about nautical elements and how I am going to incorporate them into my spring wardrobe. Today I am featured on eBay Canada’s Fashion Pages sharing some of my favourite pieces for spring. The weather has finally turned around in Calgary and we’ve got some warm winds coming through making it perfect for cropped pants and NO SOCKS!
My look was completely inspired by preppy girls on boats, sailor garb and the Teddy Girl movement of the late 1950s. I love their effortless and casual style – a few menswear-esque pieces paired with ultra-feminine makeup and soft wavy hair. Let’s just say, you can’t go wrong with the red, white and blue combo as you welcome in the spring. Just don’t forget to throw in some beautiful gold pieces of jewellery to glam it up a bit.
