There are many things that can be said about me. One of those things is I have a very certain style of clothing I am the most comfortable in. Now it’s not sweat pants outfits, or superhero capes or anything of that sort. I am sort of in a serious relationship with dresses. I actually have so many that I could go about a month with never having to wear a pant at all… and since I live in California… basically I live a dream pant-less existence.
Earlier this week my mother told me showed me a dress that looked a bit like a mid-century-modern-sailor. And since that is basically the style I go for, I told my mom she was pretty spot on. I loved it so much I had decided on purchasing it!
And then I realized the next day that I had a problem. I have 3 versions of that very dress and have no real need for that dress at all! As heart breaking as it is it would be silly to have 4 blue nautical inspired color block dresses*… unless of course I was going on a cruise on the love boat, and then everyday I would want to show up on the deck like the most convivial passenger on a boat (which I would be.)
But since I have to work in an office 30 minutes away from the beach… I must suppress my nautical desires. But, I can still have my dreams…
*I’m pretty much blaming my need for navy blue clothes on my 4 years at Catholic High School. It just goes so well with everything, and makes me feel spiffy. However Nuns, I still refuse to wear white socks…

Dresses are so easy too. Cute post…
Thanks a ton! Dresses make everything nice!
That’s really amazing, I have a number of dresses but rarely the ‘occasion’ to wear them and wear the same pairs of trousers all the time. I wouldn’t normally consider wearing dresses to work, sometimes a skirt but that’s rare too. Half of the reason is probably the weather though, it’s a fair bit colder in London.
Lol you could always sell or donate some of your nautical dresses and keep one or two just in case you boating :-)
Well it is about time to tidy up my closets. But, I will never give up my nautical look, its so crisp and fun!
Lol I understand and since that’s the case this site has quite a few cute nautical dresses http://www.chicstar.com/storefront/listCategories.aspx?query=sailor though you might them already! I have a coupon too STYLESTAR for 25% off.
OMG. I think I’m in love with that website now, thanks so much!
I love anything that remotely resembles a nautical theme. I had four different shirts with anchors on them, two different blue and whit stripes shirts, and a strange hat which made me look like a captain. I don’t wear dresses, but I totally get the obsession.
Avast there Jen! I too love shirts with anchors on them! I like to wear them and pretend briefly that I’m Popeye (especially if I’m eating a salad) … but, I digress. I’m just glad to know that I’m not alone in my nautical obsession!
Dresses are awesome! Too many people refuse to “dress up” these days!
Thanks.I love to try to dress nice… sometimes I get really excited to go out. And I put on a dress, and make my hair nice… and then my friends/ family say “Where do you think we’re going?”
Then I say, “to Applebees of course.”
Hey, what this world sorely needs are girls dressed for musical nautical adventures. It would be such a happier place then. Yo ho ho ho….
That is what I think too!
Personally I’m working on the number “Jolly Hollers.”
Love it! I’m going through the same thing with skirts. But as I come from a place where its either cold and/or raining 11 1/2 months of the year, they are hard to come by. PS the sailor look rules!
I feel for your plight. Also since this post I have bought a white eyelet skirt, and this week is all scheduled for rain!
sublime cette tenue!
Thank you so much!
I hate gray and navy knee socks as well as oxford shirt thanks to 8 years of catholic schooling.. ugh. Nice blog :)
Hahaha, oh the years of Catholic school really do a number to us. I must say I know these aren’t trendy things, but nearly 10 years later I still feel comfy in an oxford shirt, as long as no one is checking my skirt length with a ruler…
