A NAUTICAL PINUP DRESS
What I wore:
Pinup nautical theme dress (Jodi style) – c/o Voodoo Vixen, Steve Madden sandals – c/o Lulu*s, Bamboo bag – Cult Gaia, black shawl – Marshall’s, Oversized cateye sunglasses – Express, vintage/deco pearl fly ring – c/o Chloe & Isabel, gold floral earrings – c/o Ilaments, black vintage bangle – thrifted
Major heatwave here in Southern California. It’s been wacky. 90 degrees and then it rains and then it’s hot again and raining again. I wore this cute pinup dress before it started pouring! It is perfect though because the fabric is not too thin and not too thick. And major brownie points – this dress not only has cap sleeves, but it also has pockets!!! hooray. Probably the cutest nautical themed dress I’ve ever worn or seen. And wouldn’t you say the sweetheart neckline adds just the right touch of romance?
If you’ve been following me on snapchat (@marlitacupcake) or instagram, then you might have seen me talking about converting the belt that came with the dress into a headband. No special tricks, just wrapped it around my noggin and tucked in the ends. I couldn’t bare to wear my hair down another minute so I threw my hair up and stuck bobby pins anywhere they would fit! And for extra flair/ functional fashion, I decided to wear a lightweight shawl in case it rained and turns out that was a pretty smart idea!
How are you staying cool in your neck of the woods? Do you have a pool? If so, I’m jealous.
