Nautically Themed - Part One

Next week is the Mister's birthday and to celebrate we are going to spend a week on the East Coast.  I had started looking for some new outfits to wear on our trip and was inspired by all of the nautical themed clothing out there.  I thought it would be fun to share some of them with you, but there are so many that I have decided to break it up into a couple posts.

'On the Water' Nautical clothing

I love this cute casual outfit with the cropped pants, just begging to wade out into the ocean waves.

'Sail away' Nautical clothing

I am crazy about a red, white, and blue color scheme.  Not only are they patriotic colors but they lend themselves perfectly for a nautical theme.

'Beachy' Nautical clothing

Isn't the print on this bathing suit darling?  Perfect beach wear, and this bag is big enough to throw some beach towels in and go.

'Stripes and Stars' Nautical clothing

1) Here  2) Here  3) Here  4) Here  5) Here  6) Here  7) Here 8) Here

This yellow purse would add just the right splash of color to either of these ensembles, and what about those adorable macrame shoes.

'Striped' Nautical clothing

Stripes, stripes, and more stripes.  Perfect for lounging around on the deck of a yacht, dining on lobster or just combing the shore for seashells.

Generally, when I think of nautical, I think of a casual setting, but the trend in nautical fashion these days lends itself to a more professional setting, and many of these outfits could be worn to work as well as the beach.  I think that nautical fashion shows a look of sophistication and style that makes it perfect in any situation.  What do you think of this nautically inspired round up?  Which is your favorite?

Stay tuned for part two.


  1. I love the nautical look. And these are some wonderful combinations, Denise!

  2. Love all the pretty nautical styles. I have been having fits of spring fever here in Iowa, because spring just will not happen here! Just a hint, I found that same basket style purse at my local T.J. Maxx for about $30.00. It is as adorable as it looks in the picture. Now if it would just stop raining long enough for me to bring it out of the house. :) Have fun on your trip to the east coast!

  3. These are all great looks. All the dresses are really great.

  4. These outfits are all so fabulous cute! I wish I could press a magic button and have them appear in my closet right now. We don't live on the sea, but our town does have two hefty lakes and as such I'm always on the prowl for fun vintage-y nautical pieces to wear to the beach during the summer months.
