OOTW: Sail Away

Jesse L. Brooks


Summertime tends to keep our minds on being near the water, especially in this stifling Kentucky heat. This week we are focusing on our love of waves and boating with a new, super chic Outfit of The Week. We envisage showcasing Gucci's sailboat printed shirt midi dress around marinas and boardwalks alike. Made from crisp cotton blended with linen, the elegant style is framed with a lavallière neckline, pleated skirt and covered button-down placket. 

Since the dress has such a lovely color story, we wanted to enhance it with equally striking accessories, starting with classic red sandals perfect for summer soirees. We admittedly can never resist a campy bag moment, so we really had no choice but to add this sparkling ship clutch by Little Luxuries Designs. This incredibly luxurious metal style is designed in the shape of a ship to invoke memories of the infamous Titanic Cruise Ship. Talented artisans decorated the purse with thousands of hand-set Austrian crystals. 

For an additional shot of blinginess we next added Liven Co's diamond ring, which reminds us of glorious ocean waves. Seeing as how our look is made for a sunny summer day, sunglasses are a must. Warby Parker's Leta design serves up a classic cat-eye shape that radiates instant eyewear elegance. Our final touch is a fresh and juicy red lip courtesy of Tom Ford Beauty. This innovative lip formula combines the easy application of lipstick, the gleam of gloss, and the rich emollient of balm. 

Whether you're shopping for vacation or simply looking for a little July style inspo, this look will have you more than ready to "Sail Away" with us!
