It's not like we haven't seen it before, in fact it usually pops up in our fashion world most summers, but lately with the heat-wave thats been going on in the New York area, I want nothing more than to throw on a navy dress with some detailed bows and trek out on a boat into the breezy waters! Unfortunately I don't have a boat, and I only have one such dress in my possession, so I have to go a different route. Stick humid NYC calls more for cut-off shorts with a navy striped tank top and some gold accessories! I'm trying to get over the heat and grin and bear it for some good outfits though - after seeing Zooey Deschanel wear a sailor dress and tights when performing as She & Him on the 4th of July in 100 degree weather, I'm motivated to man up!!!
Anyway, it seems I'm not the only one who is inspired by these themes lately - check out my friend Q's blog to see a recent post of hers on Breton stripes, along with more great inspiration! So, dear readers, I leave you with the source of all this sailor love, in the form of a ton of pictures I've found lately that I can't get enough of! So roll up your boyfriend jeans, throw on a sailor cap and enjoy!
