Hey Sailor! Vintage Outfit Post and a Glimpse of Coney Island

One of my favorite elements of 1930s and 40s style is the nautical look.  

That's why I swooned when I saw The Black Pinafore's two piece nautical play suit on sale.  With super cute anchor print fabric, rope trim, and nautical buttons how could I resist. 

Plus it perfectly matches my favorite summer hat, a 1930s sailor number.

 I originally planned to wear the outfit to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade, but my plans fell through at the last minute.  So last Friday John and I took our own trip to Coney Island 
via bike and ferry. 

Much of Coney Island was destroyed by Sandy.  The boardwalk has been rebuilt. 

We visited Spumoni Gaedens the best place for Sicilian Pizza and Spumoni Ice Cream. 

It's so good and such a summery place!  I'm sure will make the trip again next year.  Summer is fleeting remember to enjoy every minute! 


  1. Oooh! I would wear everything in those photographs!! I love summer beach style clothes too much! That dress with the anchors is fantastic and that hat! Oh the hat! I want to go to coney, I'm oozing jealousy right now, can you tell?

  2. I'm sharing Krystie's jealousy. I love them all. This post reminds me of the old musical "On the Town" where sailors came to New York on shore leave. I would love to see the Broadway version but I live across the country now.

  3. That fabric is stunning! What a great outfit
