Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge:Nautical

Luckily today's wardrobe challenge was a fairly easy one for me - nautical! I've got quite a few nautical items in my wardrobe and as today was my first day at work after my Auckland break I decided to wear this simple sailor style frock as it meant I didn't have to think too much about what I was going to wear when I woke up this morning.
The weather lately in Wellington has been exceptionally hot (by Wellington standards) so much so that polyester is actually beginning to lose its appeal. Crazy I know - the air conditioning broke in our building and I was sweltering in this dress today. I even had to go and get an ice block for morning tea with my work mates (that's right - I HAD to!!).
The car park in our building which was once completely full every night seems to be empty most of the time, except for one lone scooter. I think the ongoing building work may be putting people off as its not really pretty to look at any more. What do you guys think?
I think its pretty hideous - but I just pretend its not happening most of the time. This is the back of the building so I don't really notice it too much. I just hope it look fabulous when its all done.


Dress - Trade Me
Belt - Glassons
Beads - Equipt
Shoes - The Big Shwop

Oh you must have a ice-block when it's this hot, it's a rule.
The sailor dress is super cute, you just cann't go wrong with that style. Ahhhh but polyester is a little hard to handle in the heat.

That dress is so cute on you! I'm like a lizard, I never feel the heat, send some this way!!
Your building looks very grim, hopefully it won't do when the builders have finished! x

Well Hello Sailor, you look fabulous! Love the nautical dress, it's great. But yes, polyester and high temperatures are not such a good combination... Hope the work on your building will be finished soon. xxxx

Ooh I love nautical style, though your blog makes me realise I don't have much of it at all Trees. That dress looks fab even if it was too hot. I'm not sure what an ice block is either, I'm imagining an ice pack for your neck and face or something like that? xx
