Summer Nautical | Style & Home


 

I’ve mentioned before about my dislike of summer.  The hot weather, the clothes…. bleh.  BUT thankfully, summer does bring one of my favorite things – stripes and nautical-themed accessories!  This is what I’m craving right now!

I have been wanting to get a pair of pink jeans or trousers for quite a while now! I just know it would pair perfectly with the hundreds of stripes I own (it’s a sickness, really).  I’d love to add that striped shirt to the collection!

Thankfully, I can also find nautical items everywhere!  The jewelry is especially calling my name.  I’m not a huge ring wearer (besides my wedding rings), but aren’t those knot rings so sweet?

Stripes are my favorite obsession right now!cn7667839

Spring Mint and Stripes

Ah, Spring.  I’m waiting anxiously for Spring to stay put.  Here in NC, it’s been a bit sporadic, weather-wise. But I think Spring is here to stay for the time being.

Since I’m currently in the middle of cleaning out my wardrobe, I’ve been cruising clothes to fill in some gaps.  Plus, try to make outfits with items I already have.
