Nautical themed clothing has been around for ages, and we all know the stereotype of the miserable, long faced kid, who’s been forced into a sailor suit (even though he is much too old for it) by his overbearing mum (often wearing a matching outfit) for a family portrait… Right?
Well… This look, while having a nautical vibe, is far from being the sailor suit in an awkward family photo. The striking navy and red color block “Marcie” dress from Monif C. is sporty yet sophisticated. I’ve paired it with lovely, white patent leather flats from Aldo, and gold jewelry to really anchor this look’s nautical feel without going overboard. Having at least one fantastic nautical look in your wardrobe is a great way to ensure that your transition into spring will be smooth sailing!
I’d love to see some of your spring looks! Please email me your photos at email@example.com or hashtag me in your pics on instagram (@flightofthefatgirl) and I will choose somebody to feature on my Facebook page next week!
It’s been an interesting couple of days as I’ve been trying to expand Flight of the Fat Girl’s social media presence; and I have to say a huge thank you to all of those who have liked my Facebook page, and have taken the time to follow me on Instagram for a more behind the scenes look! I’d also like to thank the handful of folks who have followed me on Twitter, which I am pretty new to, so bear with me, and keep the eLove coming!
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get down to business! In light of my recent expansion into the realms of social media, I’ve decided this adorable dress from Great Glam (or tunic style top if you’re feeling modest) was the perfect way to honor the occasion!
There is something about this dress that reminds me of a retro computer game. The squares mimic the pixelated images I remember so fondly and who could forget the high contrast look of bright color on black!?!? That being said, it’s definitely a modern look with its faux silhouette design and bodycon cut; and let me tell you, it fits like a glove.
I’ve kept the accessories simple, since the fabric of this dress alone, makes such a bold statement already, and I’ve gone with an understated black leather wedge from Aldo, a cool silver cuff bracelet from Armani Exchange that really picks up on the square theme, and matte, red nail polish.
After these past few days, I’m definitely feeling like less of a square and much more tech savvy; and in this great dress, I’m looking the part too! Now, if only I could just figure out Twitter… Ha.
