Outfit Of The Day: A Nautical Autumn

Nautical For Autumn

Those of you that have been following my blog for a long while now, may be aware of my love affair with all things nautical. It could be attributed to the fact that I grew up by the sea, it could be the maritime town I went to university in that inspired me, but living in London has done little to dampen my love for all things sea-inspired- especially when it comes to my wardrobe. When the lovely guys at Joules recently contacted me about giving one of their dresses a go, I couldn’t help fall head-over-heels for this simple yet classic striped number that I feel perfectly evokes that nautical vibe. So, let’s have a look how I paired it…

Being as it’s getting slightly cooler here now in the UK, I thought a striking bit of outerwear would look great with this simple dress. I picked out the white from the stripes in the dress, and opted to amplify it with my outerwear and footwear. The coat I’m wearing was an absolute steal at £20 from the Topshop sale over a year ago, and has been a staple in my wardrobe since. I think it adds a nice juxtaposition to the fitted, feminine dress. Of course, the dress is Joules and I have to say it genuinely is one of the most flattering and comfortable dresses I own. Its simplicity means there’s a world of outfits to be created with it, and the craft that has gone into making it far supersedes that of most of my wardrobe. Although at £50 this dress is higher on the price scale than I typically go for, in terms of value, I think it’s well worth it, as it’s not going to bobble and ruin after a couple of washes, and there isn’t a stray or frayed seam in sight. This dress and I are in it for the long haul.

Finally to finish off the look, I went for these TK Maxx boots, which I picked up for £24.99 a little while back, (there’s a full blog post on them here). To keep accessories minimal, I went for my Monki Unni sunglasses, (again there’s a full post on them here too). If you’d like to see more of this dress, then you’re in luck, as I recently featured it in my August Collective Haul on my channel, which you can find here. It may just help you see exactly what I’m talking about when I’m waffling on about the quality! That brings today’s post to a close, let me know as usual what you think of this look! I’ll be back on Friday with another post for you guys, so I’ll see you very soon. Until next time…
