Naughty or Nautical

Nautical-Naughty-Savvy-Spice-fashion-blog

Do you fight naughty or nice? A few nights before Christmas my husband and I got into a little argument, like any married couple, and I made a rude comment which I quickly learned doesn’t really fly when you’re married to an only child. If you’ve ever dated or are married to an ‘only child,’ you’ll have a whole new perspective on personalities. They didn’t grow up with siblings and the daily bickering, joking and teasing that comes with the territory in big families…meaning they might be a bit more sensitive. 

After my childlike statement, my husband looked over at me

with his sensitive little eyes and I could see I hurt his feelings – but he had a comeback. ‘Well, I guess someone is going to have to give Santa a call tomorrow and tell him not to bring you anything,‘ he said with a smile on his face. Nooo! After apologizing, I made a mental note to always ‘fight nice‘ in the future. Whether you were naughty or nice this year, I hope you enjoyed your holidays! And if you’re hitting up the ‘After Christmas Sales,’ here’s a few of my favorite styles and trends (under $50) from a quick trip to Barcelona earlier this month in this nautical inspired look…

 The Scene ~ Barcelona, Spain

White-H&M-Jumpsuit-gold-Gucci-heels-red-lipstick-Makeup-Forever

Aviators ~ I love aviator style glasses and think they’re flattering for men & women. Depending on your face shape, choose the mostly flattering size frame. I always find aviators at TJ Maxx, Nordstrom or malls for $30 or less each season.

A Winter White Jumpsuit ~ I found this jumpsuit (new) at H&M for $20, but it was too chilly to wear alone so I threw on this navy sweater. (Style Sidenote – If you have a long torso or just want to look taller by wearing heels, I recommend going 1 size up from what you usually wear because jumpsuits never look good when they’re too small or short)

Vintage ~ I found this necklace at a vintage shop off one of the old cobblestone streets in Barcelona for 9 Euros. While everyone might be crowding malls to return Xmas gifts this week, check out your local vintage shops for a crazy pair or earrings or a gaudy gold 70’s necklace for New Years Eve!

Hobo-the-Original-Lipstick-holder-Savvy-Spice

Red Lips! ~ Check Sephora for the holiday gift deals! I just found this ‘Makeup Forever‘ kit including red lipstick, HD powder and more for under $30. PS – If you’ve ever had lipstick spill in your purse, these holders by Hobo the Original are perfect. It has a tiny mirror on the bottom too! $38

I unplugged the past few days spending a fun and snowy Christmas break in Frankfurt, Germany. I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are you planning to shop the ‘after Christmas’ sales or are you ‘shopped out?’

  8. Dale, I would’ve never known that was a jumpsuit underneath. Looks so good. LOL about you and your hubby! You guys play nice now. Oh gosh, I’m an only child and have to agree with you. LOL The worse is when an only child dates another only child! That was my last boyfriend! Oh em gee! He was more sensitive than ME! LOL

    • Thank you Kim and I was surprised the sweater worked so well over the jumpsuit. I can’t imagine only child dating an only child, I’m sure you have some fun stories. hehe

  13. I love Barcelona and I love this look on you, Dale. This makes me think that I could wear my wide leg black jumpsuit in a whole new way with sweaters. Fun idea! Happy New Year to you and I’m so glad we were able to meet up in Chico during 2014. Looking forward to your next visit to California and more fun. Cheers to you and 2015!
