Ladies and gentlemen, ’tis the season for boats and bonfires! If, however, you aren’t able to vacation on a gorgeous body of water in, say, Nantucket with a yacht waiting to tote your crew around the bay with champagne and hors d’ouevres in tow (ahem, moi), I promise wearing anchors and stripes is the next best thing.
In my opinion, nobody does nautical dresses like Lilly, and her newest Summer arrivals are downright fabulous. It was difficult to narrow down the options from her most recent collection, but here are my 3 top choices//newest additions to my closet:
Summertime in Florida completely reduces your casual wardrobe to shorts//skirts. Pants, jeans, or anything covering the majority of your legs are not an option in the 100 degree weather (plus humidity, people), so when I came across Lilly’s Callahan shorts in a slew of adorable new patterns, I fell in love. Here are 3 of my favorite boat-appropriate prints:
Nautical accessories are just as integral in completing a summer outfit, and Marley Lilly//Etsy//Happy Gal have some fabulous anchor-themed embellishments. These are a few of my favorite jewelry picks:
Lastly ((and most importantly)), one of my favorite aspects about the sailing lifestyle is the optimistic mentality associated with the sea. The ocean brings about feeling of hope, faith, and personal growth, and Hebrews 6:19 is my main go-to verse for Summertime inspiration. I hope it offers you some comfort, as well.
