Open to Interpretation: Nautical


Sweater: Macy's, old school
Shirt: H & M $3
Skirt: American Apparel $6
Boots: Mervyns, ancient history
Purse: Michael Kors, gifted from mr. shopfreak

I wore this outfit, just to take part in Freckles in April "Open to Interpretation" challenge.  

Here's the inspiration photo: 


 I wish this outfit was already laundered so I could rewear it and bring the outfit up a notch. I'll be sure to repost again when I get a chance to wear my intended outfit. Maybe next time I can force myself to take pictures early enough so that the sun is out.  How much does the picture quality affect your decision to  return to fashion blogs? I have to admit, I tend to be a little snobby in this respect.  Not that you can tell from my choice of pictures though :)

You are so pretty and I love your take on this look with the striped shirt and chunky cardigan. Thanks for joining in with us!

I know what you mean - the early darkness has totally thrown off my outfit photo schedule. It's hard to wake up early enough to take them.

Even with the night shots, you look fabulous! I love how you made it more nautical! Thanks for participating!

That red skirt is adorable!

And I completely agree on the early shots - my husband goes into work at 6am, so it's dark then, and gets home around 4:30-5, at which point it is dark AGAIN.

Yes, photo quality is everything! But I'm biased. That said, these nighttime shots still look good. This outfit is another one of my favorites! I love how you wore this sweater in an earlier post and it was a completely different look!
