nothing but love for nautical

6 Apr

I’ve never lived by the water nor am I a boat person, but I ADORE all things nautical! There is something so crisp about the blue and white stripes and the clean look of the clothes and decor. Today, I’m dreaming I’m on the beach soaking up the sun and watching the sails go by. And, I’m taking the yellow and white striped bag you will see below with me…and you should too!

yipes … stripes!

1 Jul

Happy Fashion (July 4th) Friday!

So I thought it would be appropriate (not to mention super-patriotic) to post one of my favorite summer time fashions on the weekend for BBQs, pool parties, and good ‘ol fireworks! I am seeing stripes everywhere, and I am loving it. Black and white stripes, red and yellow stripes, navy and white stripes … you name it … I am liking it! Not only are fashion folks wearing big bold striped outfits, but also shoes, hats, and other fabulous accessories.

Show your patriotic self with bold color and stripes (and they don’t have to be red, white and blue … but if you feel the holiday spirit … go for it!) … in homage to our wonderfully striped American Flag.
