My personal style includes a mixture of classic designer pieces and inexpensive trendy items. When I saw this striped blazer by Tory Burch (retail price: $325), I knew there was a designer space for it in my closet. The simple shape is given a new look with nautical stripes. I’m already running imaginary outfits through my head!

Cobie Smulders may have slipped under my fashion radar for quite a while, but when I saw her rocking a pair of bright green A.L.C. cigarette pants along with a white sheer blouse, also by A.L.C., and neutral colored heels I couldn’t help but be absolutely smitten by the effortless elegance of her look. Find out below how to rock a similar ensemble as Cobie.

Budget Look – Nautical by Nature

by Irina on January 22, 2012

Fine, I’ll just come out and say it: I’m totally addicted to all things nautical! Stripes, anchors, the combination of red, white and blue – I’m naturally attracted to all these things. So while doing my daily new arrivals research I had this idea of creating a Budget Look with a nautical theme. Do you like it?
