I’ve used the phrase “navy or nothing” to describe my aesthetic for years now and while it’s gotten me some pushback in the blogging world (“do you own any other color?!” etc.) it will always be the color I feel most comfortable in. (And yes, I do own clothing in other colors… but mostly shades of blue, white, pink, tan, gray, and the occasional green or lavender.) I sometimes cringe looking back at past outfits where I stepped way outside my comfort zone; personally, I’d rather stay true to myself and what I genuinely feel good in than try to dress like someone else. It’s funny because everyone in my family wears navy all the time, so it’s honestly never something I noticed about my style until I started sharing parts of my life on the internet!
There are lots of brands that do navy well, but one of my favorites this spring is Sail to Sable. I’ve talked about them on my blog for several years now and they continue to make some of my favorite preppy dresses and tunics for the warmer months. This spring I picked out this navy and white flounce top, which is so easy to throw on with jeans and a trench for a dinner date and will be perfect to tuck into shorts come summer. I’m also excited about this color-blocked romper (hello, favorite color combo), this everyday t-shirt dress, and these sweet striped shorts.
Lastly, if you love a good budget-friendly buy, I just realized all the accessories I’m wearing in this outfit — from my pearl drop earrings and tortoiseshell sunglasses to my basket bag and suede bow sandals — are under $150! Love when that happens. 🙂
