Look of the Week: Preppy Nautical Style

On a dreary weekday, we headed out to Crescent Beach for a change of scenery. It was pouring rain and didn't make for the best of circumstances while taking photos, but it was fun nonetheless, and the town still looked just as quaint. Where else would be better for a nautical outfit post than along the shoreline?

One of my best friends has been insistent on a Kate Middleton-inspired post, and finally I got my hands on all the elements required to re-create this look which the Duchess of Cambridge wore last year. Coloured demin is still a big trend this season, and as you've seen from my Summer Colour Inspiration Board, this hue is on my list of must-haves right now. I kept the look preppy, like the Duchess, by adding a blazer to the coloured jeans, but instead opted for bright cobalt rather than navy while accessorizing. The result is a nautical twist.

I also played around with a new lip colour (NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick): an orange to contrast my complexion. I actually quite like it! If you're not a fan of big change or out-there colours, try a red with just a tint of orange. The only thing I would recommend is adding a bluish colour to your lips before adding the orange lipstick: this will keep your teeth from looking yellow. Don't ask me why, it's just some advice I heard a long time ago, and it seems to work!
