I must admit… I am often the Queen of Kitch. Dancing hippo or lobster patterns from Lilly Pulitzer and preppy pink whale emblazoned items from Vinyard Vines are some of my specialties! Of course, no theme is more kitchy than “nautical.” From old fashioned anchors, to traditional sealife, kitch is king (or queen, as the case may be!). This summer, however, I find I am more attracted to a slightly more sophisticated nautical dressing.
Above, I’ve highlighted a few of my favorite looks including stripes, white trim, and lots of gold buttons. Will you go nautical this summer?
