WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

May 19th, 2015 at 2:00am

The final weeks of school are upon us, and students cannot help but daydream about their summer plans. Many people in the area of Fairfield, Connecticut enjoy the warmer months on the water. Students have already started taking advantage of this luxury by spending their weekend days at local beaches. With stripes lining the runway this season, the nautical look is trending. I don’t know about you, but I am all aboard!

Since it‘s still a bit too chilly to throw on your favorite bikini, a more modest outfit is suitable. This Fashionsta plays around with the preppy look pairing her Sperry Top-Sider shoes with fun, floral-themed patchwork capris. Take a closer look. The pastel prints on each patch are oh-so springy. Plus, her navy-and-white-striped sweater sails along stream perfectly with this nautical theme.

Her accessories keep this look simple and casual. Her elegant, multi-strand necklace sparkles in the sun with its gold hue and complements her watch nicely. Her Alex and Ani bangles clink in the breeze, signaling that it’s the perfect weather for a sail on the water.

Follow this Fashionista’s footsteps, and you are sure to achieve a look that is casual, weather-appropriate and preppy enough for the yacht club scene!

One Simple Change: Ready to take this look from daytime casual to nighttime fun? Ditch the boat shoes, and throw on a pair of wedges. It will dress the look up all the while elongating your legs, giving you the boost of confidence you need to feel fabulous after a day in the sand.
