Commander in Chief

I feel like I am in charge today !
But, trust me, I am not.
Well, maybe I am in charge of what I chose to wear !
(Does that even count ?)
I went to Zara yesterday and they had a sale.
I did not buy anything as all I saw was
pretty much nautical.
As much as I love nautical I know I have stuff in my closet that
resemble and can pull off the look.
SO that, I tried today.
White is always a good start while creating the sailor look 
so I chose this white jacket and pants. 
These have been in my closet for at least 5 years and I paid no 
more than 6.00 USD for each piece.
The red top has also been in my closet for at least 7 years.
The brand is Carven and this top is just
so comfortable !
The shoes you have seen before. 
They are striped red, white and blue
from Lela Rose's collection for Payless and the bag
is my old yellow Lulu bag.
The last thing I put on was my gold plated coin pin.
I had been looking for a vintage sweater guard for sometime.
I mentioned it to my great aunt and she pulled this out of her trinket box.
It use to be my aunt's, who passed away from cancer a few years back.
Unlike yesterday's look, 
today I feel fresh, young, comfortable 
and even pretty !
Oh, how I wish I could look like this everyday!
