Ship ahoy!

Today I'm wearing this playsuit from Urban Outfitters, its rather nautical in it's detailing but I also look at myself and believe that patients may mistake me for a nurse if I wore this to a hospital.
To think about it, what is the appeal of nautical inspired items? Only yesterday did I find online a white, slightly transparent shirt imprinted with small navy anchors and within seconds I was considering what I would wear with such an item. 
I can only imagine it stems from our parents desire to dress us as small children as if we were sailors, miniature members of a yacht club. I'm surprised that more babies first words aren't 'ahoy'.
But then why do our parents choose to dress us this way? Perhaps it is the clean lines and smart uniformed look to these kinds of silhouettes.

  6. The collar of this is so perfect. I also love how you have such a soft, light haze over your photos. Do you edit them?
