landlubber

I have always had a love for the nautical look. A striped boat neck, linens, white bottoms, deck shoes and some sort of canvas tote are all quintessentially cruise worthy or not...depending on one's sea legs.
Quite a chic couple sporting such spiffy duds ready for any dock!
Do you bring along something fun on vacation, a festive happy little skirt.
Paired with a shirt or a little tank, this skirt would take me many places.
Perfect for those who are traveling South of the Border, right?
Are you on board for something sea worthy in your wardrobe or are you more of a land lubber when it comes to fashion?

PVE - I had to smile since I just received not one, but two, nautically inspired striped tops from J. Crew yesterday! Planning to pair them with capris and ballet flats this spring. And with the warm weather tomorrow, spring might be here sooner than we think!

Days at Buttermilk Cottage said...

The weather here this week is sunny and warm(ish). It, combined with your classy drawings have put me in the mood the change out my closet for spring clothes. But, I guess I should wait a bit longer yet. I love navy and white together and anything nautical.
Best,
Susan

EntertainingMom said...

Hmmmm perhaps the Look Book should start to your wonderful illustrations!

Just wore their new pink and navy striped boat neck Catalina the other day. It was like walking on sunshine!

EntertainingMom said...

posted too soon... meant to say the look book should start to feature some of your illustrations. Nothing like leaving out a word or two!

Joyce said...

The illustrations are giving me the spring feeling. Filling my head with memories on our lake and looking forward for new memories. xo

I'd say that fully half of Mrs. E.'s sweaters are striped. I pack the sailor's shirts for trips to the beach.

Must be the weather, but I'm aching to break out the white trousers and stripes! That would include my red and white striped espadrilles....

Janet-
The Sandals look like Bernardo sandals but I will ask, the clothes are from J.McLaughlin - my client and wonderful sponsor.

I've always loved the nautical look...but now that I live near the water, it seems even more prevalent in my wardrobe.

Can't wait to get back on the water!!

Your drawings are so much more inviting than the photos! Love the nautical look on the Mrs. We hit St. James and J.McLaughlins on Madison for the look. Picasso could really pull it off, I just wish I looked as good in a boat neck!

red ticking said...

I'm no land lubber! We grew up spending two weeks every summer on lake Chautauqua--I love it. I can't say much thought went into our outfits as we were fishing, boating, skiing and hiking and hunting for night crawlers. But, I do love a good nautical look and do try to pull one together when invited for an adult boating party. I just bought a couple striped long sleeve shirts too.

Love your drawings

Karena said...

Patricia, I adore nautical style and the sea, the beach, even poolside. Always nice to have several cute and colorful skirts to go shopping lunching etc.

Fabulous illustrations!

I am such a sucker for nautical clothing. Not sure what there is about it, but I love it all!

Look at these shoes that Maryland Pink and Green blogged about. They go hand-in-hand (foot-in-foot) with your post! http://marylandpinkandgreen.blogspot.com/2011/02/nautical-spring.html

I love JMcLaughlin and just bought two of their dresses to spruce up my Spring wardrobe. I also love the nautical look and your drawings are pure perfection.
