Nautical Jumper You're The One...

Striped Jumpsuit + Rubber Ducky

The world' s largest {and cutest} "mama duck" was on display this weekend in Sandusky, OH for their bicentennial Festival of Sales. She sits 61 feet tall (6 stories!) and brought smiles to every face... needless to say, I found the world's largest rubber ducky charmingly amusing.

What to wear when meeting the inventor of the #duckface? I found this nautical ASOS jumpsuit online, and ordered it in a petite. I usually stick to regular sizes, but was worried about the ruffles at the hem hitting the wrong place. (I'm 5'3.) It was a perfect fit! Between the blue and white stripes, suspender style straps, and flared ankle I was sold.

Paired with my favorite J Crew yellow bow flats {a rubber material} and a bamboo basket bag, I was ready for the open seas! If you know our family, you know, it's a pirates life for me!!

The Shirtdress

Yeassss to breezy dressing for the long weekend!

I found this lightweight shirtdress dress back in the spring and have been styling it non-stop all summer. Local boutique Ragazza carries one of my favorite blogger brands -Cupcakes and Cashmere – you have to check out the darling pieces from her collection in their store!

It’s been the perfect piece to slip into for warm summer days spent walking around the farmer’s market or exploring the tiny shops around the peninsula. Bergman’s Orchards is up by the lake house and we pull off the side of the road to have a gander almost every weekend! They have the absolute sweetest peaches (as seen here) and the freshest selections of yummy fruits and veggies.

I stocked up on my produce and maybe snuck a bite into a peach or two before we left the grounds!!

If you are looking for fall/summer transitional pieces, a cotton fabric button down shirtdress is always a comfortable choice. I like this one for the nautical faded stripes and slender tie that defines the waist. If you want to layer it up, try a pair of camel boots and a denim jacket.

You guys know I am a huge proponent of “the third piece” so slide on some shades and pop a sunhat on your head and your ready for meandering walks, a bite to eat, or a 5-o’ clock “somewhere” drink!

Also, did you notice my jewelry? These earrings are by Kentucky Gypsy, the new jewelry collection I am currently obsessed with! (You can read more about the collection here.)

I hope you all enjoy the long holiday weekend! Now, home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

***This weekend remember to appreciate the small things my loves. I have had the people of Huston on my heart, and it’s been a reminder that everything we have is given to us and can so easily be taken away. I know I will be taking some extra time while I am with my family to let my loved ones they are SO loved and attempt to keep my mind in a state of thankfulness. As always I appreciate you following along! Cheers!

Nautical Winter White

Maritime Chic: Fisherman Fashion

Navy and white will always look chic, especially when set against sandy dune-backed beaches. 

When planning for a winter seaside escape, go for modern maritime with sleek lines and clean details. 

We took advantage of a warm front last weekend and spent the day exploring near the shore. The beach was pretty much our own deserted island. Enchanted, we chased seagulls and gathered shells (and had multiple heart attacks when the kids tried to dip into the freezing water and climb the craggy rocks.)

Draw inspiration from the sea, with a captain’s fisherman hat and a chunky knit pullover that will keep you warm, with minimal effort. 

A thick cream cable knit is one of those items every closet should have. Irish Celtic lore originally inspired fisherman or Aran sweaters. The cable stitch is said to resemble a fisherman’s knot or rope, representing safety and good luck at sea. The sweater’s traditional cream color comes from bawneen or un-dyed wool. With its soft almost golden hue and beautiful knots and loops, a hand-knit Aran sweater has become a kind of mascot of the Irish islands, and classic American wardrobe piece. (J.Crew

When shopping for a fishermen style sweater, look for a one that is tightly knit, heavyweight and in a natural shade. I guarantee just sliding one on will make you feel stronger and studier.

When imitating this look mix with a few preppy touches, like this Brixton cap. Add a structured bag and understated makeup (a love of lobster, anchors and sailing doesn’t hurt either.) Layering with a navy coat (this one last seen here) and other warm details, like lace-up ankle boots and thick knit socks. Balance out the chunky cable with skinny jeans.

There is no better time than the middle of winter to snuggle deep into a sweater that will never go out of style. Plus, any excuse to add a few nautical-inspired pieces to your wardrobe.
