Ahoy, ahoy… here it is folks, the final layout for my posts on nautical gear! The whole point of this trend is comfort and ease… believe it or not, sometimes being too fashionable isn’t necessarily stylish. The “less-is-more” approach is a definite must in Spring and Summer fashions.
So this week, I want you to take notice on the three types of shoes that are a staple for this trend: the boat shoe, the canvas slip-on shoe and the classic lace-up’s. I wanted to post way more than what you see in the layout, but you get a pretty good gist of everything that is pictured.
I hope my last few posts about this particular trend has been informative and enjoyable for you to read. You now have a guide to complete your nautical fashion awesomeness…
Have an fantastic week everyone!

Hop aboard and sail away with me on this week’s cruise, while we spring forward into one of Spring’s classic trends… nautical apparel. The maritime concept promotes a cool effortless style that focuses on relaxed fits that anybody can rock, no matter your sex or size. I kind of like to think of it as a conservative style, but without being too stuffy or pretentious. To mix it up a bit this week, I felt like focusing on a “his & her’s” type of layout. Display below is a great example of how two people can compliment each other with their fashion choices, without being too matchy-matchy, and all the while being on-trend. Nautical attire is so easily accessible to everyone regardless of how big or small your clothing budget is, it’s also a quick way to show the fashion snots you know your shit when it comes to dressing yourself without really having to do a lot. It basically boils down to a pair of straight/slim chinos, a striped shirt/tee and some loafers or boating shoe. Boom! You’re done! I had to also include one of this season’s must-have colors, orange, into the mix and honestly, it really works well with this particular theme with the navy and white and pink, etc. Check back next week for more on my favorite nautical gear, and I’ll most definitely have some options that are a bit more price-friendly.
