Instant Crush: In Knots

With spring fast approaching, nautically inspired pieces are easily found. Sidestepping the anchors, boats and crustaceans, I'm falling in love with the simple knot.

For jewelry, the gold knot bangle is at the top of my list. Wear it now, wear it through the summer, actually never take it off. Nautical may start trending in the spring, but in my mind it is season-less.

In clothing, I love the rope motif in blue and white. These colors just speak to the notion of an endless summer. Layer up the sweater and it could be worn today. The shorts might need to wait for a memorial day weekend debut, so perhaps hold out for the possibility of a sale?

  5. Spring is NEVER coming to Kansas. I have straight up given up hope. I haven't seen the sun in about 2 weeks and we are constantly getting snow or rain. Pretty prints are taunting me right now!

  7. I have always loved that gold knot bracelet from Kate Spade! It's one of those things I want but can't justify the price on. Definitely something I need to ask for as a gift!!

  9. What a cute selection! When spring comes - or is supposed to be coming but hasn't quite yet - my mind always goes to nautical styles. But it's so easy to go over the top, I love how subtle all of these pieces are. Especially that gold bracelet!

  17. In Ireland we're not yet quite there. Spring hopefully will come after St.Patrick's Day(it always cold on this day). Your lovely selection makes me dream of spring and summer even more.

  19. I love designs using rope in blue and white too. It just makes it more nautical. I agree with everyone else that those sandals are amazing, but I think I am liking that white top with the rope heart more.
