Outfit: Nautical Stripes


This is one of my favourite dresses at the moment and I considered it a bargain when I purchased it in a recent sale at Forever New. When I look back on my outfit pictures over the summer, it is very obvious that Forever New has been my favourite store recently. At the moment, most of my outfits incorporate a piece from this shop. It seems to have replaced my Modcloth addiction (since I decided to take a break from online shopping given the high shipping costs). I love this new bag that I received as a gift the other week. I saw it with my mother in law a couple of weeks ago in David Jones and she bought it and said that I could have it! I like it because it reminds me of a bowling ball and I absolutely adore tenpin bowling. Rydog says it reminds him of a poker ball.

Red, white and blue is one of my preferred colour combinations to wear so I enjoyed combining many of my red accessories to form this outfit. I wore this outfit on Saturday. This weekend was one of the most enjoyable I’ve had for a long time. I went to the Taylor Swift concert, tenpin bowling and shopping and spent lots of time with family. (Just as well I had a good weekend, it was my last weekend of being 22!).

Last Thursday, while at the shops, a little girl and her mother told me that I looked like Snow White. I was wearingΒ this outfit, with a few modifications. I guess it must have been the red lipstick, pale skin and dark hair. I was really surprised at first but the more I think about it, the more I like it. I’ll definitely take that one as a compliment. It’s made me feel good for the last few days.

  1. Ah! This dress is gorgeous!! I love red white and blue as well. This dress is soooo pretty and it looks amazing on you! And hey, we both have red bows in our hair in our most current blog posts!

    How was Taylor Swift live? I've seen her on TV live a bunch of times and she's pretty hit or miss. But I like her!

  2. your hair cut, skin tone, and red lips are very snow white – esque – that't actually a huge compliment because she was saying you look like a princess! that's cute. little girls just point at me when i wear dresses in the winter and say 'mommy she has no pants.' haha.

    i love this dress – skater dresses like this are my favorite and i love stripes! the blue and red are great together – i love that awesome bag you have.


  3. You look simply beautiful! I would definitely take the Snow White comment as a compliment πŸ™‚

  4. I love the nautical colour scheme, the dress is so pretty! Definitely would take the snow white comment as a compliment, I would love to be compared to a disney princess haha! x


  5. You DO look like Snow White!! I definitely agree you are the fairest of them all. You're so pretty. πŸ™‚ You've always reminded me of Audrey Hepburn in the last three years, but you also give off a very modern fairytale vibe. There is something so naturally lovely about you and combined with your whimsical style, it is so magical.

    Love this outfit. xoxo
