Friday's Fancies: Nautical by Nature



(Images via Pinterest)

***

Happy Friday, everyone!

I'm joining my friend {av} for another Friday's Fancies feature! This week she gave us a nautical theme- something I simply adore! I've seen lovely nautical posts popping up on some of my favorite blogs lately, so I was thrilled to do my own take on it and be able to throw together a polyvore set to match!

For me, the nautical theme just screams summertime- breezy dresses, bold stripes, sky-high espadrilles, shiny gold jewelry, and maybe (if the opportunity presents itself) one of those cute sailor hats!

Happy Friday, loves!

I have a fun weekend ahead- finally going to see Midnight in Paris tonight and a fun cookout tomorrow at one of my coworkers' place. Maybe I'll take a cue from today's post for my outfit inspiration?!
