Old Navy

When I bought this sweater, it immediately reminded me of my father and old pictures of him when he was in the navy.  I decided to really do up the outfit and I came up with something that made me feel like a vintage sailor girl, circa 1920’s to 1940’s.  Then my sister and I went out to Harbor Drive near Downtown San Diego, so that we could have pictures with The USS Midway in the background.  It was a beautiful day, which really made the pictures even more like the ones in our dad’s old photo albums, especially with the sepia color.  I miss my dad, and it’s nice when we can pay some homage to him in small ways.

    1. Thank you so much, and thanks for stopping by my blog! I just checked your’s out and I loved those Marc Jacobs mouse flats. What a great find!


  1. Wow Cy! Looking excellent in this mod-sailor outfit! That first photo absolutely exudes a vintage flair with the sepia tone! Love to see a zoom shot of that pendant, it looks like it’s fab! /Madison

  2. Wow! This is probably my favorite photoshoot of yours, ever!! I absolutely love the outfit and the oh-so-appropriate setting. Plus, the editing you did on the photos just completes the look!

  3. I have a soft spot for sailors- ok the sailor outfits, and your sweater is a keeper! Best of all, you’ve created an outfit that makes rooms for warm memories- so that they live on a little longer. Lovely lovely look!

    1. Thanks Bella! I have the same soft spot, and for both reasons! Since I was little, I have had some form of sailor sweater or shirt, and I know it’s the influence of my father.
