Nod to Nautical

Look familiar? I took this outfit and updated it a bit for “spring.” I’m kind of living it my own little fantasy land and pretending that it’s already spring, even though it was 18 degrees (with the windchill) when I left my apartment yesterday. I AM SO OVER WINTER AND THE COLD. #endrant


I’m loving the combination of plum, rust, and navy. Saturated jewel tones? Me? No, never. 😉

These rust pants have a tendency to feel very “fall,” but I think the striped tee, plum pumps, and off-white give the outfit a fresh update.

    Such a cute outfit! You are right – the mix of colors are gorgeous. I am obsessed with those pumps – I’m guessing they are no longer available?
