Anyway, back to land L...below are some great examples of nauticalness and I bet Poseidon would agree with me on this! I love the Motel Patriot Cardi - with the red, white and blue, you can see why the Americans named it like this. Plus, you’d be pretty patriotic of your boat while wearing this baby (if your boat was a country that is)! The District 9 pants by Sass & Bide are so sci fi and out there, while still being nautical! Clever! And these Melissa shoes! SO COOL! These are the ones designed by Vivienne Westwood, so pretty & girly! Karen Walker’s ‘The Village’ range has a big nautical theme and it was hard not to include all of her clothes in this! I love these Alice Boat Shoes and socks, they add a certain preppyness to the nautical look, which I really enjoy.
I’ve also sneaked in some things I’m crushing on at the moment – blazers (how hot is this ASOS number?), red lippy (oh NARS, I love you), cute handbags (adore) and silk scarves (they work with everything)!

Enjoy the nautical trend my fellow sailors, it’s so fun to pull off! Be careful with the stripes though, some can have an unflattering effect. Not ideal.
Have a fabulous day!
