Nautical Love


My favorite color combinations for spring/summer is hands down the nautical combinations.  There is always a navy blue base, but you can add in green, red, white, and add gold accents. I like to call it yachting chic, even thought boats make me sea sick.  I was pumped to see these colors already on display at Nordstrom. These are pants are so comfortable and travel great, which is good because I hate ironing. The day of my trip, I slid into Nordstrom to see what I could see. LOL. I am so excited for spring, and the Encore section was filled with beautiful spring jackets, brightly printed dresses, and springy, lightweight fabrics.  Yep, it's spring.  

I found these pieces just in time for my mini vacay to Santa Cruz.  I love trucking down there because it's close to me, but far away enough that it gives me a chance to get away.  When I on vacation it's important for me to look put together, but also comfortable. I wanted something that I could go to dinner in, look nice, but without a whole lot of thought (or ironing).  I wore this to Aquarius with the hubby, which was a restaurant at the Dream Inn, the hotel we stayed for the weekend.  (Shout out to the Dream Inn for letting Shug stay.  Apparently, they aren't a pet-friendly hotel, but Orbitz had them listed as such).  The food was good, but our room was even better.  We had a seaside room, right off of the beach with a beautiful pool and view.  It felt so good to fall asleep to the ocean.  It made me a little homesick for Brunswick and the smell of salty air. Sigh.  I can’t wait until I can get there again. 

Style Notes:  I adore spring coat.  This trench is no exception.  It's from the Sejour brand at Nordstrom but wasn't on the website.  It is a lightweight coat that is the perfect spring coat for those chilly nights. Shoes are from Nordstrom and bag is from Olivia + Zoe.  Note to my girls who are comfortable tucking in, this looks can easily be worn with the shirt tucked out.
