Ocean Whispers: ootd

    I didn't grow up near the ocean, far from it, but the first time I stood on a beach staring out across the Atlantic and the most beautiful sunrise I'd ever seen, I was in love.  I've been a collector of all things nautical ever since.  When I found this Pitter Patter Skirt by Maeve on ThredUp for $17.50 and I was instantly drawn to it.  The colors reminded me of ocean waves thick with foam.  
    On the same trip browsing ThredUp, I also found this lace blazer from Forever 21 for only $8 and I knew these two were meant to be.  My favorite thing about this jacket is the little gathering at the back.  Very sweet and unexpected, it gives it that extra something.  
    I accessorized with nautical and seashell jewelry just to tie in that ocean wave feeling I got when I first saw it.  This outfit, especially the jacket, is surprisingly comfortable.  I'll switch the heels for walking flats and this will be my new running errands outfit.
