It's time for a new wardrobe theme at Petite Career Girl...Nautical! It's perfect for spring and there is always a large selection in the stores. However, for some reason I never wind up buying any. Therefore, I've made a concerted effort to pick out Nautical inspired pieces from my closet and the stores, that mix n' match well. Here was my strategy:
- 5 Dresses
- 4 Blazers or Cardigans: to go with the dresses and bottoms
- 4 Bottoms: I chose mostly skirts, since it's spring and already 99 degrees in AZ!
- 5 Tops: to go with the dresses and bottoms
* I didn't buy all of these items and shopped my closet for about half of them.
** Then I moved everything else out of my closet, so that I could see what I have and not feel bombarded. (The exceptions to this rule are neutrals like jeans, white tees, denim shirts, etc...they go with everything.)
(I want to thank You Look Fab and Cardigan Junkie for inspiring me with their capsule wardrobe posts. I've been a long time follower and love their blogs!)
Instead of showing you everything I bought, I thought I'd make you wait until I wear the outfits. :) Therefore, I've shared some cool Nautical inspired dresses from Ann Taylor, Gap and One Stop Plus, as well as some accessories from Banana Republic and J. Crew. I hope you enjoy and I'll post the first outfit starting next week!
