Accessories are not to be taken lightly: they can make or break the outfit. Accessories are an extension of your style, an exclamation point at the end of your “statement”, a cherry of top! 
Today I'm featuring the new styles by one of my personal favorite Nautical Brands - Sail Swag... 

 
 
I have not met a girl yet that doesn't have a shoe addiction. I love shoes! Heels, flats, wedges...all of it! But the Nautical Lifestyle has definitely had a major impact on my shoe taste. I now have many pairs of cute flats and boat shoes in every nautical shape and style: stripes, anchors...you name it! These Blue-Anchor-Beauties just recently stole "the Shoe corner" of my heart. 
So In this post I'm featuring them and one of my fav shoe brands: Loly in the Sky

 
 
The summer is here and the boating season is officially open. It's always kind of a mystery what to expect and what to pack for your day out on the water. I think this list of important essentials might just put your mind at ease.
Are you Yachting this weekend?...

 
 
Your bedroom might have the world's best mattress, but your bed is only as comfy as your bed sheets are...and a stateroom bed should feel no different!
Nautical style, comfort and functionality...where do I turn to?

 
 
Accessories...no outfit is complete without it. Anchor bracelets, belts, nautical stacks & watches...these amazing brands are taking Nautical into Stylish & Fashionable!
So here are some of my recent favs...

 
 
I wanted to do a post about a few beautiful pieces I got from the Los Angeles based brand Sienna Rose.
I'm in love with this colorful and stylish blouse, that I have chosen to wear as tunic in these pics.

There are not many truly Nautical prints out there. And the Stripes would be sad and lonely if it wasn't for the Chevron. Gotta love the Chevron.

Last weekend was the Newport Beach Boat Show. It's not the biggest or the baddest Yacht Show we have in the US, but never the less we had to go...since we are still shopping for an upgrade (yes, my hubby is on the Yachtworld.com every day. #obsessed
So, once again the question is What To Wear? 

"Going to a Yacht Show with no info about the dress code is like hiking through the jungle in your bikini...unpleasant, to say the least."

 
 
It's not easy to be “The Real Deal”. It's also not a constant, not something you have achieved and don't have to do much after. On the outfit-by-outfit basis you have to find the balance between FF: Functionality and Fabulousness. When “The Real Deal” steps her foot onboard, she Rocks it! It doesn't mean that all she wears are shorts and pants...

I just recently had a friend on board who wore a super cute summer dress, but she had a pair of tight shorts underneath. She was able to be comfortable, but still unique in her fashion sense...

 
 
Unlike “The Could Be”, “The Wanna Be” woman makes a tremendous effort to look Nauti. She monitors Ralph Lauren, J.Crew, Guess or Travel magazine campaigns and takes notes. When you see “The Could Be” woman on board, she looks fabulous! Beautiful flowing, backless maxi dress which she pairs with some tall espadrille wedges or rhinestone covered flats, and a stunning jumbo brimmed hat the size of a flying saucer tops off the ensemble. As lovely as it may look in the print ad, the functionality?  Well, I don't have to explain...Let's just say it only works when you are docked.
 ”The Could Be” women are lacking the Nautical Lifestyle experience, and there is no one out there to help (well, expect for me. Lol I'm here for you, Ladies) ...

 
 
This woman has the advantage, the head start you might call it. She lives and breathes Nautical Lifestyle. She is either on a sailing team, owns a yacht, works in the industry or might even be a Captain. The Nautical style would automatically come with the territory, right? Wrong!
Somehow “The Could Be” woman is still stuck in the transitioning stage...
