Boat party? Yes please

A few months ago friend asked me to help her  with an outfit for a boat party. After hours of questioning our friendship and some serious soul searching for reasons why I wasn't invited to this party, I put my emotions aside and went to work. What would everyone be wearing I  thought? Blue and white with boat shoes? Full sailor outfits like they were going into a submarine to fight for their country? I was going to do the exact opposite as usual.  So anyways in true Alero style I found these trousers on sale at HnM for £11.99 and thought, I better put together my own sailors outfit for a rainy day (ok not rainy rainy, I don't have pawa for ocean swimming biko). I sat at home for many days thinking, any day now someone will invite me to a boat party, any day.... and exactly 133 days later, I invited my own damn self and went on my own damn party with my family who love me unconditionally for who I am ?. I knew I wanted to wear a hat of some kind and not look like I was going golfing in a boat so my all season straw hat sufficed.  I paired this easy to wear shirt from Bershka and sold out high rise white trousers similar here. My bag is vintage from etsy and I got it for £22 which was a bargain. I love my bag and my bag loves me ???. Here is an idea of an outfit I could have rocked if I had more time to prepare. All items listed. Until next time buttercups.  Self portrait lace shirt JD Williams trousers LINK above. Earrings  and bracelet from Wolf and Badger  Kitten heels from Mandarina shoes

    Too cute!! Love that you added some colors and stripes instead of going the typical “all white”. Although, in the future would love to see how you’ll pull off a mandatory all white boat party look. Trust you would make it fun and different.
