Sailor Ally

I'm naturally drawn to styles that are bright and youthful. So I leapt at this sailor top in a thrift-store ($5). I rounded it out with a striped skirt, girlish heels and gold stockings. And lots of bright makeup. Oh, and I'm wearing a mermaid-necklace given to me by a girlfriend!

What do you think?

By the way, I really enjoyed putting this together. Creating the outfit, wearing the clothes, taking pictures... it's all so gratifying. Sharing the joy with you magnifies it even more. Thanks for visiting!

  4. Ahoy there Ally! I LOVE this outfit. The sailor look is one I particularly adore and this is an excellent outfit! So cute and I love the shape and the detail of the blouse! What does the back of the collar look like? (Whenever I wear a sailor item, I always like to include a photo of the back! Show us your back girl!!)
    You look very happy in this pretty outfit!x

  7. Everything about the look of that outfit, from makeup to shoes works well on you. You do look happy. It is hard to quantify the feelings of peace and happiness that some of us guys get when we are able to express ourselves as you do so nicely.

  8. Sometimes it's hard to find the time to do the things that make us feel the best, isn't it? I love this fun outfit, especially that lovely skirt. The nautical theme is so much fun!

    1. Yes, it is and has been especially so for me the past few weeks. Holidays and work meant public duties and not private pleasure.

  11. You look amazing in that outfit, Ally. That sailor top is very cute, it would have come home with me too. And I am seriously coveting your mermaid necklace. Your make-up is spot on too. I agree with Suzanne that you look happy! xxx

    1. You're right -- and, for me, finding "natural" in women's clothing is a steep uphill climb.

  13. Love the nautical look---classic & sexy in a low-key way. The French seem to do a sailor vibe very well!!!
