|Hello, sailor! This is my modern interpretation of a nautical look.|
|No need to collect shells: Tatty Devine made some printed ones to wear.|
|Nowadays, mermaids wear metallic skirts and like cute sushi bags from Japan.|
|Scarf Magic: Not from under the sea, but from amazing Cléo Ferin Mercury.|
|Kawaii: Yummy sushi to go.|
|Lilac Lace: Mermaids might be afraid of fishing nets, but lace they love.|
|Pure Love in Silk: Can't get over the prettiness of those colours.|
|A Mermaids Dream: Does it involve a prince or having legs? We will never know.|
|Shiny Silver: Did you expect golden treasures in heavy chests? I'm sorry, silver must do.|
|So sailor, what do you say, will your ship come back to my harbour?|
How to style a nautical look without being cliché? This is what I tried today, so instead of stripes I wear a pleated skirt as my modern interpretation of a mermaid's tail.
The look doesn't spot the classical blue and white nautical style, but a mixture of lilac, silver and blue. Metallic pieces go very well with a nautical look, just think of shiny treasures hidden in the depths of the sea. I know I'm such a dreamer, but I'll never stop my fascination for mystical creatures, no way!
The highlight of this look is my silk scarf by Cléo Ferin Mercury (See my post about their SS15 Nautical collection here). The print is even better than in real, and my neck loves the good quality. I think this is a piece I'm going to keep forever. It's a perfect scarf for the current time between winter and spring, and I hope it will protect me from catching another cold while I'm living my dreams of being a fashion siren.
How do you like this look lovelies?
