Nautical niceties | COW & Sperrys

Sperry boaters

This outfit feels incredibly nostalgic for my student life, as this lace n' print combo became something of a staple in sunny Sheffield. These tartan shorts are actually part of a playsuit, which I bought from COW back in the days of 6th form. It's a vintage reworked piece which is fitted around the chest and baggy around the bum, for optimum comfort and swishiness. It seems fitting that COW instilled in me a love of vintage back then, so much so that I'm now a COW ambassador.

To think I was running around as a sprightly teenager in this playsuit still makes me smile!

Lace t-shirt - H&M
Faux leather rucksack - New Look
Lola skimmer shoes - c/o Sperry

I think my love of nautical attire is rooted in wanting to be a pirate. I'm a sucker for anything blue, striped or even anchored, so these Sperrys are pretty much perfect to help me feel like I'm by the seaside. Along with my sailor tatt and bottle of rum hidden in my rucksack (shhh), I could definitely pass for a deck hand, right?
