Navy Nautical + Link-Up


And this rounds out the Style Perseptives series on The Blended Blog. I think I can speak for all that we have enjoyed putting this together and seeing all the looks that have been linked up. Don’t worry we have more style up our sleeves and there’s more about that at the end of this post.

But for now it’s Navy/Nautical day here with Nicole from Nick & Nicole +4 up on The Blended Blog with her prompt idea. Please stop over and see what she put together!

I decided to pull out some short for today’s look. My navy and white striped shorts fit the prompt on both fronts. And yes, it’s time to start pulling out the shorts in my neck of the woods.

I bought these shorts last summer but didn’t actually wear them out and about. When I put them on, I realized I really like the fit. Yep, I’ll be wearing them this summer.

Did you catch the graduation looks last week? If not, here’s the recap. These ladies continue to always knock it out of the park!
