Nautical Vintage – Wednesday Wish List #2

With the first May bank holiday drawing ever closer my mind is turning to summer clothes and, as a result, this week’s Wednesday Wish List has a rather nautical theme. Let’s just hope we get some sun for the three-day weekend!

Breton Top by Boden

I absolutely love Breton tops. They have a real vintage Rivera feel about them and, of course, were made iconic by Coco Chanel. I love to team them with denim capris, red wedge sandals and a red head scarf for a truly nautical look. Last summer I was without a Breton top as, my old one was so worn out, it was embarrassing to wear.  However, this year I will definitely be buying this one from Boden as I know it’ll be good quality and it’s only £25 (a bargain for them!).

Stella Sweetheart Doll Dress by Collectif

How cute is this Stella Sweetheart Doll Dress from Collectif? With its halterneck top and gorgeous red polka dot fabric it just oozes summer and would be perfect for just about every event or social gathering.

Sailor Blouse by 20th Century Foxy

I’ve beenkeeping my eye on this 1930s style Sailor Blouse from 20th Century Foxy for some time now and have finally just purchased it, so I can’t wait to see it when it arrives.  I love the sports inspired looks of the 1930s and know this blouse will go really well with my black 1930s style sailor trousers.

Anchored blue playsuit by Rockabilliy Pinup

This Hell Bunny Playsuit from Rockabilly Pinup is just the epitome of the nautical look with its sailor stripes and cute little anchor embroidered on the leg. This is definitely a must this year if the temperature heats up. I have to say, I love the shoes too!

Ruby Shoo Polka Dot Dorothy Shoes by Tiger Milly

I’ve only just discovered Tiger Milly but as I was browsing their website I instantly fell in love with these Polka Dot Dorothy Shoes. Mary Jane’s are my absolute favourite style of shoe and these certainly don’t disappoint. I love the red loop trimming around the edge of the shoe and the contrast of the red against the navy and white polka dot. These would finish off any nautical inspired outfit perfectly.

Noe Striped Drawstring Handbag by Ugg

I didn’t realise Ugg did handbags but this Noe Striped Drawstring Handbag is just gorgeous. Being an Ugg product I would expect it’s very durable and would last quite some time but then you would hope so at £135. Oh, I can dream!
