OOTD: Nautically inspired

Good Saturday morning to all!

I've added the Pages feature to my blog to make some things easier and a little less crowded on my sidebar. I'm really wanting to clean this all up a bit (because I feel like my blog is getting a bit cluttered) but I'm struggling with not knowing how to do anything unless blogger spells it out for me. I'm trying to learn HTML... but it's coming slowly

I wore this outfit the other night when going out for a happy hour. All of these items have been worn before (and recently) in other outfit posts but really seem to come together to make a totally new aesthetic when worn like this. I'm not really a preppy kind of gal, and I think the nautical look is preppier than I am. But I like the way it came out and I just love these pieces individually. So hell. Why not.
 
  
  
 
Jacket: F21 Articulate Jacket
Top: F21 striped tunic
Jeans: AE super skinnies
Shoes: I really have no idea.

Yeah, funny thing about the shoes: it's so weird for me to own a pair that I don't know the brand. All I know is there is some funny tan leather logo inside and I can't quite make out the deets. There used to be this shoe boutique in Dallas' West Village (you Dallas gals will know where I'm talkin' about) and it was great. They sold tons of stuff and tons of brands I'd never heard of. Best part was at season's end, the sales were legendary-- $200 shoes on sale for $20. Fabulous. Anyway, that's where these babies are from. Sad part of this story is that the boutique eventually went out of business. Probably because they were selling $200 for $20, but oh well. Got some deals out of it while it lasted, I suppose!

Have a fantabulous Saturday, lovies. I'm off for one last hurrah at this interviewing/school checking-out thing. Yippee.

  7. Very nice! That jacket is so neat - I've never seen anything like it.

    PS - the feather skirt took longer than anticipated, for sure (over an hour) but, ultimately, it's simple and involves a black skirt and several black boas ;)
