Sail Away with Me...

I'm loving that nautical is one of the "it" looks for spring/summer 2010. Here are my picks of some great nautical inspired pieces. Happy sailing! (Or rather, Happy shopping)? After all these picks are just too darn cute to sit on clothing racks!

Antro's Field Game Cardigan definitely makes me think nautical with it's white and navy stripes and gold buttons. The lace trim adds a nice girly touch, don't you think? At $118 dollars it's out of my price range but adorable and nautical inspired nonetheless.

Delia's Brooke Polka Dot Dress is a modern twist on the nautical look. I love the mix of the solid blue and red material with the polka dot print used for the lower half of the dress! The dress also ties in the back which I totally love!

For a more casual nautical inspired look this Roxanne by the Sea Tank from Delia's would be perfect paired with your favorite pair of denim shorts or capris! I mean c'mon how could you not love the sailboat print?!?! I think this tank would be fun to wear during the summer months ahead.

Ann Taylor Loft's Sheer Stripe V-Neck Cardigan would be a great alternative to the Antro cardigan I posted above. Especially if a $118 dollar price tag and lace trimming aren't your thing. The navy color and stripes give it a subtle nautical look. I love the simple look to this cardigan and think it could easily be paired other pieces.

What would this post be without a skirt? My pick is American Eagle's AE Nautical Skirt. I love the seer-sucker print and button detailing.

I started this post with an Antro item so why not end it with one too! If you feel like being a little daring why not try the Salty Seas Dress? The lobster print most definitely reminds me of the beach and summer!

Of course you can't forget a nautical-inspired accessory to add the perfect finishing touch to your summer outfit! I'm loving the sailor knot necklace available from the etsy store thevamoose.
