Nautical With A Twist + Zara Gift Card Giveaway

It’s no secret that I love any and all nautical-inspired pieces, however my style is always evolving. Lately I’m just trying to have a little more fun with fashion and avoid looking like I came straight out of a J.Crew catalog (don’t worry J.Crew, I’ll never be able to quit you!) This Zara origami skort is a fun way to give this navy and white ensemble a bit of edge. 
Since I love Zara so much and I’m happy that I’m living much closer to an actual Zara store now, I’m giving away a $25 Zara E-Gift Card to one lucky winner! To enter, scroll on down to the end of this post. 

top – h&m
skort – zara
sandals – prabal gurung for target
crossbody – rebecca minkoff
watch – michael kors
necklace – house of harlow

a Rafflecopter giveaway

    You're originally from Baltimore!? I never meet other bloggers from an area so close to mine! I grew up in Carroll County, but I'm moving to Howard. How can I not support another native Marylander? And living in DC is pretty much Maryland as far as I'm concerned, haha 😉

    PLUS, I love this nautical outfit! Especially those red shoes. I really want a pair.

    I'm glad I found you through one of the giveaways. Great sense of style! 🙂
