I hadn't planned on this outfit being head to toe Next, but I recently got the most beautiful, blue Pandora bracelet and anchor charm, and I really had a tailored, nautical look in mind... Lucky for me, Next really got my style!! I wanted an outfit that would feel relaxed, but smart enough to wear to work.
These navy tailored shorts are perfect for a hot, Summers day in the city... They are slightly shorter than I would normally wear to work, so to keep them office-appropriate, I teamed these with a more covered up top and a comfy flatform... I mean, how cool are these shoes really??? I'm in love! As you can probably guess, I love a statement shoe, and these are practical yet stylish.
To take the look from the office to the boardroom, I would add a navy blazer and this stripey tote is perfect for carrying a notepad or tablet!

Of course, my beloved Daniel Wellington watch was ideal to go with this outfit. I featured this in my Stripes on Stripes outfit post, but I think against this simple white and navy outfit, the Canterbury watch really pops out.
I have to bring your attention to my accessories...
As mentioned before, the inspiration for this outfit was this blue Pandora bracelet with it's lovely silver anchor charm*. Both of these are new to the Pandora Spring / Summer range and are available from Joshua James Jewellery. I love that the blue, leather band is fun and colourful for Summer, and the new range of charms match this perfectly!
I completed my look with this triangle diamond ring from Gemporia* I have been obsessing over Gemporia rings ever since Millie Mackintosh featured a ruby and diamond ring on her instagram last year... They have a HUGE range of the most gorgeous, stylish rings. It literally took me about a week to decide which one I wanted!! However, I couldn't resist this diamond, sterling silver ring! And, as you can get a lovely piece from less than £50, I'm sure this won't be my last Gemporia ring...Accessories:

I hope you like my Nautical look!
So, tomorrow I'm jetting off to Amsterdam for Fashion Week with Fashionchick and I'm trying to organise my wardrobe for that... I am SO excited! I can't wait to get blogging about this :-)
Have you been to The Dam before?!
