Ahoy there, Matey!

Can I just say right here and now how much I just love the nautical trend?! And not just the navy/stripe theme that's the focus of our looks today, but the whole theme.  I have lots of nautical stripes but I also love my anchor sweaters and sweatshirts!  Check out a few of my nautical looks on insta!

Now that I got that outta the way, on with the show.  So excited my Canadian soulmate Nicole chose this week's striped look.

I've  showcased my stripes a bunch of times on the blog, so I thought I'd pick a favorite of those looks for my Style Perspectives today!  This is one of my favorites, and I put it together when I participated in last summer's Create 28 with Whitney and Carrie.  I am so glad that Create 28 has made it's way to The Blended Blog.  We hope you'll join us for Create 28 this June as we once again create looks around super fun summer prompts. I put this outfit together for what I think was the baseball prompt.
This striped dress from last summer is so super easy to just throw on.  It will once again be in heavy rotation this summer.  As will my beloved denim vest.  My trend impulse buy that I totally wore the heck out of!  So glad I hopped on the denim vest train.    I thought this was super fun and sporty and fun for summer and wanted to share it with you all again.  Complete with my red sox cap to help keep the sun away!!

And my cons keep it comfy too!!

I wore this dress from Spring all the way into the fall!  Check out more of how I styled it here!   Now that I'm looking at this I guess it's more sporty than nautical...but stripes, it is! LOL

And here's a round-up of last week's graduation dresses.  I kinda loved seeing us all dressed up and fancy!!

14 bloggers each picked a look that defined their personal style.  
The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it.  
Make sure you stop by the Blended Blog to see the featured lady.  
Please link up on the Blended Blog to show us how you would wear the prompt!

  13. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
