One of summer’s biggest trends that has been gaining increasing popularity lately is nautical style. Clothing wise it’s pretty simple; combine navy, white, and some stripes and you’re ready for a day of sailing, without ever having to leave the dock. On the accessory side things get more creative and you start seeing a lot more of sea-related symbols such as anchors, ship’s wheels, and little sail boats. When you think about it, anchors in real life aren’t that pretty; they’re just large hunks of metal covered in sea grime that sit at the bottom of the ocean. But there’s something about the look of an anchor on the side of a handbag or engraved in a ring that just really captures the eye and brings out those summery, ocean vibes.
And despite the fact that I live nowhere near the sea this summer, just in the middle of the Arizona desert, I’m guilty myself of having several nautical themed pieces that I wear whenever I want to pretend I’m walking along the oceanside enjoying the cool summer breeze.
These particular pieces I purchased at Charming Charlie at their semi-annual sale (which is happening now!). They have so many great pieces from necklaces to rings that if you’re looking for the perfect sailor bracelet to match your new navy striped shirt, this is your one-stop shop full of little treasures.
Hope everyone is enjoying a summer full of sunshine and the sea 🙂 Happy Friday!
