Sunday Styles no. 27

In celebration of my recent investment piece and the warmer weather here in So Cal (it's about time!!!), this week's Sunday Styles is going the way of classic styling with a nod to Mama Matsuo & her musings on nautical-wear.

There are few things I consider sartorial panaceas...fashionable cure-alls...but this is one of them...


No matter who you are, there's just no way you'll ever look bad with a classic navy & white nautical shirt and a trench coat. Ladies, slap on some red lips for extra pizzazz. It's about as timeless and classic as you can get. Short, tall, curvy, stick-straight...there is a combination of this that will work for you. In the end, tailoring is what will count. Take these components and run with them, my friends.

Because of the suddenly scorching temps, I've opted for high-waisted shorts and because it's Sunday, flats...obvi. (Though, I have been jonesin' for a pair of basic black stilettos recently.)

As for the trench's use (I took the lining out - I'm not that prone to getting cold) on a hot LA day...lemme tell you something. Los Angeles is a desert. At night, the temps drop and it can get pretty chilly. AND if you decide to head west on a beautiful Sunday towards the water and end up in Malibu or Santa Monica (because you're wearing nautical clothing...why wouldn't you head towards the sea?) it's always a little breezier and chillier over there.

So, there it is, folks. Captain Nami, signing out for some rest & relaxation. Have a great rest of the weekend! xo!
