Bridles & Baubles

Hey Sailor

It's that time of year when the stores are rapidly moving out winter merchandise at deep discounts and slowly adding in resort items. It never fails that navy and navy stripes in particular always play a large part in most resort collections. I guess they are less jarring than neons and pastels when the weather is still bitterly cold and the thinking is they still look good paired with dark denim and boots now but also look fresh paired with white denim later.

This navy combo from Bailey 44 caught my eye and actually got me thinking about adding them to my closet. The ponte knit navy pea coat is updated in a cropped silhouette that allows longer length tops to peek out. I love it paired with the Retreat top, which happens to be the most interesting sailor striped top I have ever see. The traditional navy and white linen shirt gets a boost from a contrast stripe woven shirting bottom hem. This whole outfit will allow you to dream about warmer days while still staying warm and cozy. Available at Bailey 44.
