It's that time of the year again when New York's streets are flooded with strapping men in uniform. I've never actually experienced fleet week before because I always seem to be going on trips right around this time of the year. But this time, I'm here for it, and I'm gonna make sure I get out and find me a sailor! I've always been intrigued by Fleet Week, particularly because of that Sex and the City episode where the girls invade the party and hook up with random sailors. I don't quite have such daring aspirations. A photo op wearing a sailor hat, maybe a drink with a sailor or two, and lots of giggles with my favorite Aussie and Frenchie are all I'm out for tonight.
So what does one wear to go sailor hunting anyway? At first I thought of going the nautical route but they must be tired of seing navy and white stripes. Jodie and I thought it would be way cuter to do a ladylike look harking back to those ubiquitous war movies where you see men in uniform paired off with women in feminine dresses and pincurls. I just ended up dressed in a pencil skirt and frilly secretary blouse, but I think these ladylike yet summery outfits by Lauren Moffat would be perfect for running around the city in search for men in white (Well, except those high heels. That would be suicide in Times Square).
