Style Perspectives: Navy Stripes or Nautical look

May 25, 2016, by Nicole

Welcome Back, it's Nicole here and I can't believe we're almost done with our Style Perspectives series! It's gone by so quickly.

Lets re-cap last weeks prompt: A Graduation Look

We're a bunch of beauties eh? 

And our most click link ups were:

Moving on, I've been both very excited and nervous for my turn at selecting a prompt. I did so way back in February when we were brainstorming this idea, and I picked one of the latest dates on purpose, to give me time to figure out what to style. I'm a huge fan of navy striped anything, and this gave me an excuse to buy a new blazer I've been wanting badly. Only trouble is, I couldn't find a shirt I liked with it. So I resorted to my all time favourite navy and white stripped dress:

I bought this old navy dress 2 years ago and love love love it. I paired it with my yellow tote from Target, it's perfect for outings with the family ( I had 3 kids snacks, 3 water bottles, a camera, my wallet and lord knows what else in there). We were out this past weekend on a family day and my sister also wore stripes! Great minds and all that, so I'm including her in my little collage below.

So after much debate, I decided to also wear my blazer and found a teal tank to go under it. I really like Kelly Green with Navy, but couldn't find a top to fit me. Insert sad emoji here.

My entire outfit above is from Old Navy (except necklace which was a gift). So there you have it folks, my take on Navy and White Stripes. I cannot wait to see what everyone else is wearing!! I hope you will link up with us below. And make sure to join us next week for styling a summer dress  (Yikes -I better get a summer dress!!)

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.
