Could I Have That

That Nautical Vibe.

Good morning!  And welcome to the new Magpie design!  After SO many issues with the technical aspects of Le Blog over the last few months, I finally sorted through them and settled on a new design with some better features.  LMK how it’s working for ya!

I saw this gorgiiiine look on the blog Could I Have That and d.i.e.d.  Not to be a copycat (though, I am a copycat), but I need to recreate this look STAT.  I love the slightly nautical vibe, but mainly love that everything about it is so on-trend and at the same time classic.

A few pieces on my lust-list to help me channel her supah chic vibe:

+These darling bow-topped slides — love them in the gingham ($130)!!  (I’ve already swooned over many-a-bow-topped-slide, but these are list topping!)

+The exact linen wrap skirt she’s wearing in the shot above ($198).  Get the look for far less ($45!!!) from Gap here.  I also love the non-denim version in this chic utilitarian olive green color.

+This denim wrap skirt, on sale for $98, is also on my radar as an option.  Or, for those prepsters out there, this striped wrap skirt from J. Crizzle, also $98.

+Love the idea of pairing with a nautical/preppy vibe top, like this gingham asymmetrical lovely.  I also love this gingham OTS style from J. Crew ($59).

+And while we’re talking preppy shirts, OMG. This.  Must-have.  Bows, stripes, and under $70!

+Perhaps inspired by the styling associated with this precious H+M pleated tennis skirt I posted about yesterday (now sold out, BOOO!), why not go all the way with a varsity-style sweater (Frame, on sale for $281)?

+Speaking of all things preppy, I’m trying to finagle a way to justify the purchase of this amazing Johanna Ortiz one-piece.  TOO GOOD.  It needs to be worn with a straw hat and a goblet of rose.

+Everyone and their mom owns the Cult Gaia wood bag ($128) she’s wearing in the snap above, and, as one of you recently pointed out in the comments on this post, it may read “sooo 2016/2017” in just a few months.  But, there’s always this epic lucite version that few will have and everyone will covet.

+FINALLY.  In a totally different vein, but inspired by all this preppy goodness, THIS GOWN.  What a gorgeous statement for a wedding in Nantucket!


  1. That Halston striped gown is AMAZING. Perfectly easy but so stunning. I seem to have more formal summery events these days (weddings, fundraising events, etc.) and I might just need this in my closet. I’m picturing great sparkly earrings and maybe a slightly oversized tuxedo jacket for those cool early summer nights.

    1. LOVE this image. For some reason I’m also conjuring this romantic vision of myself wearing it barefoot on a beach with a glass of champagne in hand. What?! Suddenly I’m writing a romantic novel??

  2. The color is very light for the links to click on to see the item to shop. LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!

    1. AHH! OK, let me see what I can do about that! Thanks for the heads up. xoxo
