Nautical in a Rush

Shirt - Old Navy
Jeans - The Limited
Ballet Flats - Old Navy
Locket - Thrifted
Purse - Charlotte Russe
Bow Headband - Forever 21

All of today I was dying to get out and go to store, so - after dinner - my mother was kind enough to take my little sister and I to Ulta. I was just wearing my plaid shirt and jeans. I was not very pleased with this outfit, and I so hate going to nice stores when I'm not happy with my outfit as it makes me want to buy stuff even more - so I decided to dash upstairs and throw something else on real quick even though I knew I only had a few minutes.
After a couple unsuccessful attempts I finally grabbed my new black and white striped shirt, my ballet flats and locket. Usually I would have softened this look with my pink flower pin - and I was tempted to do that - but I decided not to. Instead - inspired by this picture from Marc Jacobs latest fashion show - I decided to try it.
It was definately a more bold style than I would usualy go for, but I like it - bold is more summery, in a way. The only problem was I had no make up on - just some concealer. Luckilly a 50's style (light eyeshadow with dark mascara and eyeliner and very red lips) is easy and quick to put on and - I think - has a very nautical look about it.
After a quick brush of eyeshadow, a sweep of mascara and eyeliner and a rubbing of red lip stick I was off! And I felt fabulous all evening! <3

    **rows away whistling a song of the sea -
    "And it's windy weather, boys!
    stormy weather, boys!
    When the wind blows, we're all together, boys! Blow ye winds westerly,
    blow ye winds, blow!
    Jolly sou' westerly -- steady she goes!!"**
