Christian Dior s/s 2011
While the sailor hat might be a bit costume-y for real life, the rope sandals are perfection.
Keira Knightly loves her sailor pants. I think they would a lot better if she wore them longer with some chunky heels for a leg-legthening look. Now is the perfect time to find a pair; with the seventies back in full-force there are plenty to be had.
An ad for the French label, Petit Bateau, the makers of the original iconic sailor shirt. Always a classic choice.
Sperry Topsiders, not just for preppy guys from the East coast anymore, now come in so many fun colours and prints. I especially like the metallic and the plaid ones I've seen in stores. Super comfy as well as cute!
Love, love, love this dress from H & M! I bought it myself inthe navy and white version. My favorite part is the rope detailing on the straps.
Christian Louboutin s/s 2011
These would look amazing with some white wide-leg sailor pants, or with the H & M dress, shown above.
Miu Miu clogs s/s 2011.
I love these clogs! So cute. Perhaps a bit trendier than a wedge, but if you can have it all, why not?
I own this Vero Moda jacket from the spring 2011 collection. I love it worn with seventies-style bell-bottom jeans. I always get compliments!
A final piece of advice, I would avoid wearing more than two nautical pieces in one outfit. This can make you look like you are wearing a costume. Wear it while you can, because summer in Canada never lasts long, and most of this would look ridiculous in the winter.
