This Outfit of the Day is a bit of a flashback to last month when I went on my first cruise to the Bahamas. What a treat that vacation was. See this nautical look in full after the jump!
“Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea — the LORD on high is mighty.” Psalm 93:4
I love committing to a theme. Granted, most people on board the Majesty of the Seas could care less that the styling equivalent for ships is stripes and high-waisted buttoned shorts (in my mind), but for me it was an opportunity to go full-on nautical. So I did. With gusto! I paired my scoop-neck, black-and-white, three-quarter sleeve shirt with my tried and true high-waisted “sailor” shorts with gold button accents. Since we my pal Zita and I were leisurely laying out on the deck, I decided to wear my cute, black Steve Madden sandals with the bow detail. They’re not exactly the easiest to walk in, but by golly they’re charming. I tied it all together with some simple gold stud earrings and my darling nameplate necklace from Etsy.
While dressing like a sailor on the ship (and getting oodles of compliments for my attention to detail) was fun, the highlight of the cruise for me was seeing God’s majesty revealed in that seemingly never-ending, big, blue ocean. It was a reminder of just how awesome and powerful God truly is. Like the verse says, He’s stronger than the roaring of the ocean. My heart is gladdened by that image of my Heavenly Father.
