Aye Aye Sailor!

Sunday, 21 July 2013

On twitter, @FBLbloggers have created a monthly themed challenge and this month it is Nautical. For more details check out their twitter!

Who said you need to be a sailor to make a splash in fashion? Nautical themed clothing are perfect for a relaxed summer look, whether going to the beach or having a picnic!

The sea and sailor inspired look was first introduced in the fashion world when a four-year-old Prince Albert, Prince of Wales wore a sailor suit whilst on holiday on the Royal Yacht in 1846. Over the years, the trend has translated from a fashion for little boys into adult fashion.

The nautical trend has been featured on and off in fashion forecasts in recent years and features in the menswear S/S '13 trend report. However, that does not mean that ladies can't get in on the fun this summer! I think the nautical style is one of the easiest trends to wear for either casual or for an occasion.

Here is my simple nautical look that I wear...big thanks to my Mumma for taking the pictures!

It was windy...

Both t-shirt and shorts came from New Look.

My cat came to help, she doesn't look too happy.

Every outfit need its accessories! These came in a multipack from Primark.

Keeping with the sea theme - Fishtail Plait.

These images were found on Google and are in no way my own.


So it's simple! Think stripes, blues, reds and whites and you are all set for your very own nautical look!
I hope you enjoyed this sort of post, if you want more like this that aren't necessarily for the challenge leave me a comment with a theme below!
