Nautical Style for Fall 2019
Who says nautical fashion is just for spring and summer? Die-hard sailors like my husband will sail year-round, so who’s to say we can’t sport nautical styles on the shoreline in all seasons?
This navy blue 1960’s nautical maxi dress and jacket was an exciting find at the Canvas House Antiques & Design Center in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. The 1950’s and 1960’s were an era of fabulous dress and jacket and skirt and jacket sets. I shop for vintage online through etsy, ebay and even instagram. But there is nothing like being able to try something on in person, so I love frequenting my local shops. I also have an alert set up with estatesales.net so I get weekly emails about estate sales close to my home. Before I attend any estate sale, I look carefully through the photos posted on estatesales.net. I often mix my dress and jacket sets with other pieces if I don’t feel like matching. I have paired the navy blue blazer with crisp white pants and a red blouse.
My favorite part of this nautical outfit is the wide belt with rose gold filigree detailing. A bold, wide belt is the perfect way to break up a solid maxi dress and to add more structure to a flowy dress. Nordstrom’s Penelope Dragon Belt features striking gold interlocking dragons on bright blue leather.
The backdrop for these photos is the historic downtown in Pensacola, Florida. The University of West Florida Historic Trust has restored dozens of historic homes and buildings which are open to the public.
