Nautical Style: White Jeans & Navy Blouse

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.

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.blue blouse white jeans

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.

  1. Love the crop jumpsuit with the gold detail on the zipper. Earrings are perfect. Also love the navy nautical top with the beautiful detail on the back. You’re a hit coming and going.

    1. Hi Lois, this happens to be an old post so yes, the top is sold out but here is another Michael Kors that is very similar. https://rstyle.me/n/cwaaw7b52f7
      As for the necklace, unfortunately that is no longer available but I’m sure you could find something that would work well or simply layer a few necklaces.
      All the best, Deborah

  2. Happy New Year Deborah!

    Thank you for all your blogs and photos. I enjoy them immensely.

    Your style is very similar to mine. A style that is classy , comfortable and stylish. Thank you for showing us yours and inspiring us at all ages. I am in my sixties and still enjoy fashion and life. I do feel that it is important to express yourself and to dress appropriately foe ones age and still have some fun with today’s fashion.

    I live in Port Credit and love being near Lake Ontario. My husband and I spend two hours a day walking around the lake and the neighborhood. Even though it is cold and snowy we still manage to get out….lol. When we are not there we also have a home in Chatsworth, Ontario or we are traveling. So fashion still plays a big roll for me, even though we are retired.

    Thank you for all your well written blogs and beautiful photos. You put a smile on my face .

    Looking forward to reading more this New Year!

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Sheron, We are so lucky to live by the lake, and like you I like to get out and walk by it especially in the spring and summer. I’m thrilled you enjoy the blog and that fashion is still a fun, vital part of your life. Now that really puts a smile on MY face. Cheers! Deborah
