Would you call this nautical?

I love nautical look but in a subtle (?)way. I mean not simply red ,white and blue. All these colors are in my outfit but in the form of the patterns which makes things a bit more interesting.

I plan to add simple cotton dresses in my wardrobe (better say sew myself) in many colors as they make great layering pieces .This one was bought a year ago for just 1euro and I plan to embelish the hem line.

I only tried to match the colors but the patterns match in a weird way like nautical and hawaian surfer's pattern together.For me this takes the outfit to a totally different level as it speaks to my love of combining things.Not everyone can notice or appreciate it but I feel special wearing this outfit and that makes my day a bit more fun.
