Sporty Elegance

A white cotton sweater, black and white windowpane checked pants, a pair of gray polka dot sneakers and I have put together a sporty look to go to Hamilton marina again.

Add a blue/gray lace duster and now I have what I call sporty elegance.

I made that up but decided to check if such a term exists. Sure enough, it does! I suppose there’s nothing we can think of that hasn’t been thought of.

I wore this ensemble to the Hamilton Lakefront. We had a fun time line dancing and meeting a new friend who owns a sailboat. She invited me to go sailing, a fabulous adventure, but it was too windy! Better than swimming: I can enjoy the water and stay dry!

The perfect eternity scarf (100% cotton) with anchor print, hand-made by a dear friend. My sweater is 100% organic cotton bought in Seattle 8 years ago.

Wishing you all smooth sailing in the ship of life! Hoist up the sail of HOPE! Take the adventure, it’s worth the risks!

      Thanks so much Jodie! It’s a safe way to mix patterns: little anchors on the scarf, windowpane checks, polka dot sneakers and lace – all in a shades of black, white and gray.

      You’re right Maggie, I don’t dress sporty very often. This was perfect for a nautical look by the marina. Thank you for your kind words! I always appreciate your comments because you are my example of a classy lady who always dresses with style! 🙂

  6. This look is perfect for a day at the ocean in fall or even on the boat at this time a year. Love the mix of print and texture. It makes that all neutral look very interesting.
