I’m sure you can tell by now that my personal wardrobe is very influenced by mid-century styles, particularly the 50s and 60s. Even when I shop at modern stores I find ways to create looks that fit in with my aesthetic. Old Navy is the perfect place to shop for staples that can be used in all types of looks. Since spring is right around the corner, I picked up a few mix and match pieces to create a pastel take on nautical wear.
The button up, linen-blend top has a very early 60s silhouette with the cutest flutter on the sleeves.
It’s SO comfortable, you guys. Textured linen always feels very “yacht club” to me and the detail in the fabric reminds me of rope, which also feels very nautical. I paired the top with brightly colored denim in the shades Strawberry Dust and Tattle Teal. The colors and ankle length tapered cut mimic 60s style pants pretty well, but have all the comfort of modern stretch denim. I very rarely wear pants, if ever, but these are definitely something I’ll wear all the time, whether it’s around the house working on projects or out on the beach.
Classic flats finish off the look, like these sky blue Faux-Leather Moccasin Loafers.Finally, to top it all off I tied a light pink scarf in my hair. Now you see how picking the right pieces can give you vintage vibes, even if it’s from a modern store like Old Navy!
This look was created in partnership with Old Navy. As always all opinions and ideas are my own.
