During my Day-After-Christmas shopping expedition I bought four things at Gap. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was shopping thematically. Dark blue skinny jeans. Navy & white striped sweater. Navy shirt. Navy & white striped shirt. Basically, I kind of, seemingly, love all things nautical. I'm not entirely surprised by this given this year's quest to find the perfect blue paint for the living room, and my obsession with the picture that is our blog banner, but I didn't realize how overt the love was. And then I started shopping online for clothes for our trip to Maui in a handful of weeks. Of course I fell right back into the same patterns as I did the other day.

Of course, I'm also very, very cheap so I'd never buy all of these at one time. Especially since one of these dresses cost more than the entirety of what I got at Gap the other day. But I really, really, really want one of them. I'm thinking the one in the middle, yeah?

While I'm talking about fashion, can anyone out there explain to me why all bathing suits are halter style? I absolutely abhor having that tie around my neck. I feel like it's choking me within seconds of wearing it. I can't be the only one that wants regular straps, can I?


  1. Those outfits are very cute, but I think I look terrible in stripes. I'm sure they will look great on you. :)

    I like the middle dress, but love the one on the right. I think it has something to do with the A-line fall of the skirt and the belt. Plus the thinner stripes might be more flattering. Are all three from Gap or elsewhere?

  3. I love stripes, even though they're not the most flattering. I don't know why.

  4. They're from Lands End.
