What I Wore: Lucky We Live By the Sea

Just a simple office outfit today, made more interesting with an obi from Megan Mae (two men’s ties – isn’t it funky?) The cotton shirt (similar) was thrifted and the denim pencil skirt (similar) is from Old Navy, worn at least a dozen times so far.

I really enjoy these ankle strap sandals (similar), from a company that is no more, Colour of Cocktails. They seem to work with most any summer look, and they are so comfortable.

But I really just wanted to show you our new wall decal, purchased via Etsy from 3rdAveShore. It captures our feelings perfectly, and sits beneath a primitive island scene, an authentic Hawaiian Alaia surfboard that Sandy hand-made, and Dad’s guitar. A wall of happiness.

Surround yourself with love today, and stay fabulous,

  1. This is my kind of outfit! Love it. And that obi is marvellous. Can I make it myself you think? If I find some nice ties in my husband's closet. He doesn't wear them anyway. I have to say, she did carefully select the colours and patterns to go together.
    I will check out her website.

  2. The outfit is quintessential Patti – chic and simple with a flash of colour and flair – and the wall is beautiful. Yes, you are lucky to live by the sea, it's my dream! xxx

    Those sandals are hot with the red insoles.
