Nautical

These striped shorts from Old Navy probably would have been a better purchase earlier in the summer, but I couldn't find them in the store (I went to two locations!) so I finally ordered them on line and then had to wait for what seemed like ages for them to arrive.

So I styled them simply for a day at the beach with all my favorite nautical pieces.
I sat in the sun and read the NY Times style mag cover to cover (and by read, I mean look at the clothes).

It's the last day of August! How could this ever happen? I feel like I spend my whole life just waiting for it to be summer again.

  11. Oh, how I adore your nautical looks! Those shorts are adorable, and I'm sure you'll be able to transition them into fall with some tights in a clever way, since you're super clever and all. :D

    That necklace is so pretty, too! I've been wanting some anchor earrings... Lyddie, your style is influencing me to buy things, I swear!
