Let's Get Nauti!

I am a sucker for nautical accessories! I just can't help myself when it comes to navy stripes, anchors, and pops of bright turquoise, coral, and yellow. Even though nautical styles reappear each spring, they always manage to feel fresh. Probably because it is a timeless style. With spring in full swing and summer fast approaching, I thought I would share what is on my nautical wish list.

I have a mild obsession with stripes, and they are one of my favorite prints to mix with just about anything. I am also loving that boater hats are making a comeback this spring. I found an adorable one with a bow in the market here in Florence that I can't wait to wear all summer. Especially since walking around under the Italian sun can do a number on the color of your hair. I also live in espadrilles in the summer in Italy. They are comfortable, lightweight, and can be paired with skirts and dresses. I highly recommend Soludos and they come in so many adorable styles and colors, like the ankle-tie ones above!

What are your favorite nautical styles or pieces for spring and summer?

  1. It's funny you discussed your obsession with stripes because I was just talking last night about how I tend to gravitate towards striped prints and need to be better about browsing other prints like florals. Alas, this post will bring me back to my stripe purchases!

  2. I have an Italian silk neckerchief that I wear all spring and summer long. Now my 9 year old daughter asks to wear it on a regular basis too!
