Sometimes you just wake up to a day feeling navy. Solid, no mischief, honest & hard working N-A-V-Y blue. The day started out sunny and ended up with rain. But I was ready for it, peeps. I was ready.
Wore a big over-sized vintage blazer that has sweet satin cuffs. For some reason I chose to pose with the blazer over me like a shawl, so you can't see the cute sleeves. The shirt is a recent re-creation for the Citizen Rosebud. Formerly a dress, it now lives happily as a top with added buttons in front and on the sash in the back. The belt is a rope which for some reason seemed nautical to me and therefore went with my white & rope espradrille wedges & suitable-for-yacht-living red/white/blue with gingham lining tote. The bag is a one-of-a-kind creation by my dear friend Kris Laskey, the designer of the Sacramento-based label, Butt Ugly. She gave it as a gift from her my last birthday, and I love it!
Kris & I share a nostalgic love of red, white & blue. For me it reminds me of my childhood summers. I love the crisp, clean innocence about the color combination. Right around Memorial Day weekend, when you all are busting out your white shoes, I'll be releasing my "Americana" colors out onto the world. Today, it's just a simple study of blue & white. Because I'm in the navy now.
