Naughty Nautical

Silk floral tunic top (shown here), Striped asymmetrical skirt, Forever21 bag (can you believe it?! - similar), Zara heels, Michael Kors bracelet (shown here - got my eyes on this one), Ralph Lauren earrings (similar), Mirrored aviators (similar), Essie "Naughty Nautical" nail lacquer {thus the post title which I thought was apropos with the skirt's style;}

I once read this quote that said "regret not what you buy, but what you don't buy." I couldn't agree more because sometimes I run into a certain piece of clothing that normally I would pass up because it is not completely my style, but somehow for some inexplicable reason or for the fun of it, I often end up buying for either its unique style, color or the feel of the fabric. It's as if it speaks to me, saying "you know you like being 'different'..."

This skirt is no exception. It was a purchase from last summer that I never got to wear until recently. What I liked about it was the asymmetrical boho'ish cut of it and of course the classic nautical stripes. The flowy fabric makes this skirt an excellent versatile piece for a breezy spring and/or summer day that could also be worn with these sandals. And since this year's trend is all about mixing patterns, I decided to combine the skirt with one of my favorite tunics to add interest, depth and color (told you I'm not afraid of color). I Rounded out the look with a simple thin blush colored belt that tied in with the bag and my newest favorite pair of heels from Zara.
