I live on the shores of Lake Ontario, and one of my favorite places to visit on the weekend is the cute Lakeside town of Bronte. The charming marina and lakefront park area with its beautiful sailboats, a lighthouse, and pretty pavilions was the inspiration behind my latest weekend outfit. Take a look.
I’ve always loved a classic nautical look in summer. Crisp white pants with navy and gold are so sporty, rich, and sophisticated.
Typically, you might pair a striped navy and white tee with white jeans, but I wanted something a little more elegant, which is why I chose this flowy top.
It’s a navy high-low blouse, high in the front and longer in the back, by Michael Kors.
I love the beautiful V-neck and the way it flows like a sail in the wind. It’s so cool and summery. My red bag ( also Michael Kors) adds a pop of color and is totally in sync with this nautical vibe.
I have paired my top with my favorite white Not Your Daughter’s cropped jeans with a frayed hem. These jeans are super comfy because they have many stretches, and the fringe is so on-trend right now.
Do you see the pretty pleats on the back of the blouse? What a gorgeous, stand-out detail!
This is a perfect weekend outfit for me..the sort of thing I would wear if I were going out to lunch with my husband down by the water. It’s casual but classy.
Here’s a better look at the eye-catching back of this high-low blouse. Look at that beautiful detail.
The right accessories also add oomph. I’ve added this pretty gold necklace that sort of looks like gold seaweed I’ve dragged up from the water. It works perfectly with the nautical feel. And I’ve added nude sandals to make my legs look long with these cropped pants. (Navy sandals would make my feet look heavy and my legs shorter.) The gold studs on my sandals add a touch of glam.
Here’s a closer look at that gorgeous statement necklace. I picked it up last Christmas on sale and had no idea what I would wear it with, but when I saw this top, I knew it was perfect to go with it. How do you like my modern nautical look?
Note this top has sold out, but here is a very similar top.
