Walk into my closet and you’ll find three navy striped nautical sun dresses, and five navy striped nautical shirts. So you can kinda sum up that I’m a nautical nut. There’s this airy and summery feeling when I think of sea shells, sailor rope, sand, crisp white and blue hues. Hello coast. I love you the way the Kardashian ladies love botox…A LOT!
Lake season is around the corner and I’m inspired by some nautical decor to kick the season off. Simple roped vases filled with sand and candles, some rustic frames, and of course rustic lighting. I can’t wait for the first bon fire, or hearing the water lapping slowly into the dock, and the buzzing of boats at night going by the cottage. Have you ever seen that sign with the saying “Life is better at the lake?” I hate to tell ya, but it’s kinda true. It’s the place where I unplug and soak up what’s all around that there is to offer. But for now we wait, so in the meantime I’ll gather up a few items to scatter around the house to feel nautical until then.
