Son of a Sailor...




What I'm wearing:
H&M Striped Dress
H&M Tights
Black OTK Boots fro eBay
Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch in Burnt Orange
anthropologie Submerged Necklace

I don't know why but I am always a sucker for nautical themed items. It may be because I love sailing, or because the symbol of my sorority is the anchor. I've always loved anything that has to do with boats and water. That is why I had to have this Submerged Necklace, how cute is the little bit of "rope", the pearls, and the wee octopus? It may be overkill but I really wanted to pair it with my striped dress from H&M, so it's nautical all around.

Here's a better look at the necklace and bag~

  1. I love that necklace on you, Rosa. I saw at my local Anthro the other day and should have gotten it (all the more reason to go back, heh heh).

    I love stripes too - it always reminds me of spring.

    How's the weather in NYC? Ready to get dumped on again?

  2. I love the clutch! I just wish I could not be such a packrat that could carry a clutch. :) That is a beautiful necklace with the dress. And stripes are always a hit with me.

  3. I'm loving that necklace with the striped dress. I would never have thought of that! I'm thinking of "borrowing" this idea.

    You look great! I am a sucker for Nautical, too.

  6. There were a couple of the Submerged necklaces at the Lenox Square location in Atlanta when I was there this weekend.

    I didn't even notice the necklace before I saw it on you, Rosa. Now I kind of really want it ...

  8. Hello from a first-time poster! I love your blog - you have such great style!

    I noticed you have a nice RM collection and wondered if you put any sort of leather protectant on your bags? I just got my first Nikki and am scared to take it in the rain. Thanks!

  10. Lisa,
    The weather today during the day was fabulous! I wore a light coat and I was fine. I am excited for the snow though!!

    Emily,
    None of my bags have any sort of leather protectant, and they've faired pretty well. I am careful in foul weather though, but a little bit of rain never hurt any of them.

  14. I LOVE the pairing of the striped dress and that necklace. I saw a bunch of the necklaces last week in my local store. I will have to head over tomorrow to see if there are any more left!

  16. stephanie, It's hard to tell (i always have this problem) but i'm pretty sure they are black stripes. i got this at the SoHo H&M (the one with the downstairs)

  18. I've been reading your blog for awhile and now i know that we are sisters in the same sorority! Love the clothes... in fact -- I've been searching for a striped dress like that! Perhaps for the same reason?
