After a few winter setbacks, it seems like spring is finally here! It’s time to replace all those winter clothes by pretty spring outfits and go out for long walks in the sun. Especially maritime looks are great to get a feeling of warm summer days while looking fresh and stylish. A perfect all-rounder for spring and summer is the Bateau Sweater by Pretty Retro.

A maritime All-rounder: The Bateau Sweater by Pretty Retro

I especially like the 50s inspired cut as well as the boat neck of the sweater. Due to its short retro length, the Bateau Sweater goes so well with high-waisted capri-pants, summery swing skirts, and classy pencil skirts. As long as it’s still a bit chilly outside, the sweater looks also wonderful in combination with long swing pants like the Pretty 40s Swing Pants in “Navy” by Pretty Retro.

By the way: The Bateau Sweater is also available in navy and white. 😉

A trench coats protects me from the cold wind while still looking stylish. A hairflower picks up the red of the sweater, while I matched my blue earrings by Glitter Paradise with my trousers. Red heels as well as a basket bag finish my maritime retro look for spring.

A classy retro Makeup for Spring

I also matched my makeup with my retro outfit. My eye makeup is quite subtle, but on my cheecks and lips, I’m wearing a bright red. The CC Cream by Chanel is not only a great foundation, but also protects my skin from the sun, thanks to its SPF 50. So I’m able to enjoy the spring sun withough worrying about my skin. 😉
