My name is Donna and I am a nautical addict.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a ‘thing’ for nautical clothing. When I say thing, see slight obsession. It all started with my first sailor dress, the dress was monochrome, with micro polka dots and thee cutest sailor nap. It fitted like a dream and I’ve always regretted giving it the heave ho.
I’ve had the navy Topshop coat for countless years. The buttons have fallen off many a time, but I love it too much to let it go. I’m not making that mistake again. Each year, as my wardrobe evolves, I wear it in a different way. This year, I’ve seen it worn by The Magpie Girl with an Orla Kiely for Uniqlo dress, a dress which I own. I fully intend to be a copy cat, because the combination is simply gorgeous! Go see The Magpie Girl’s look here. (Warning: you will fall in love with her blog.)
So, there you have it. My love addiction for nautical clothing. Do I plan to change my nautical ways? Not in the slightest!
And now, a new (to me) sailor dress has finally winged it’s way to me via pigeon post. My wardrobe has come full circle. Although, this time I intend to pair it with berry coloured tights and a printed cardigan.
What are your favourite items of clothing? Do you have a nautical obsession too?
