Nautical Summer


 I can't believe I haven't posted an outfit since Tuesday. My new camera remote still hasn't arrived, and it's absolutely dreadful asking Jake to take my picture. I thought it might be easier to just set up the tripod and ask him to hit the button for me! He was still as goofy as ever, but at least I managed to get one decent photograph from the batch.

I forgot to show this shirt with the haul of thrift finds I brought home the other day, but it was just another  item I picked up at Saver's. These shorts probably aren't familiar to you, but believe it or not, you've actually seen them before. They were a pair of silk harem pants from U.O. that looked absolutely ridiculous on me. I tried to sell them in the grand opening of my Etsy store but nobody bought them. I've been dying for some scalloped shorts, but I'm too broke to buy any, so I figured I'd d.i.y. a pair. They're not great and actually look more like waves than scallops, but they do the job and quite comfortably at that!

Wearing this nautical look actually made me think about all the other nautical pieces I had in my closet and how I haven't photographed either one of those dresses this summer. I don't know how they've been left how because I swear I wear that navy dress weekly, but somehow they have. It has to get done before summers over though! I just need that camera remote...

Oh wow! I'm jealous as of right now. Those are all so gorgeous. Did you buy them all at thrift shops? I haven't done much thrifting, but whenever I have I haven't found anything. I get really jealous when I see beautiful things that people have thrifted. Great post!!

Much love,
Erika=]

Starr, I know exactly what you mean. I have been dying to get a tripod because my brother/photographer just doesn't get how outfit shots are supposed to look. He either makes me look like a speck in the distance or zooms in on my face completely. I am grateful for the help but I need that tripod now! :P Hope you get your remote soon.

I wouldn't have even figured out that those were D.I.Y scallop shorts. I think you've inspired me to turn my harem pants into jogging shorts!

Your nautical dresses and navy swimsuit are just the greatest ever, btw :)

I could do nautical everyday for the rest of my life. I never tire of it! Also, I love the scallop/ wave shorts, I don't have any money to spend either so I guess I'll copy your DIY.
