Navy Wedding Inspiration

Navy Wedding Inspiration by Delphine

Navy doesn’t have to be nautical, it can be elegant and timeless, also. We love it paired with light greens or blush tones. Here we’ve featured our Chevron invitation, flat printed in navy and gris inks.

wish list: nautical tote bag

photo: Old Navy

I get the warm fuzzies for tote bags. And you guys know I adore anything nautical and chic (I’ve posted about nautical trends several times before). When I spotted these anchor tote bags on Old Navy (one of my fave spots to pick up clothes for my 7yo son who is growing like a weed, by the way) my heart skipped a beat. The anchor! The cool rope handles! The nifty leather details! The only thing that stopped me from buying one is that I cannot decide which color. I like them all. Which one do you like best?

stripes (yes, again)

So you may have noticed I have a thing for stripes. I’m seeing them everywhere lately. Usually they just show up in “Resort” collections, but this year they are lasting into winter. These four are some of my favorites: Top left: Stripe long sleeve shirt from Chance; top right: stripe wool sweater from Target; bottom right: stripe cardigan from Aerie;  bottom left: stripe hoodie from J. Crew

wish list: summer showers

One of the things I miss the most about living in the South is hot summer showers. The kind that come on quick in the late afternoon. Oh, how I used to love walking on the beach in the rain. Of course in South Carolina it was way too hot to wear wellies in the summer (I was usually barefoot or in Kino sandals). It rains so rarely here in Southern California that I don’t even own a functional umbrella anymore. While all the goodies shown above are on my wish list, mostly I just wish for a simple walk in the warm summer rain. I don’t think I’m cut out for this dry weather.

Shown above: 1. Carnival umbrella from Fishseddy 2. Sailor knot rope necklace by The Vamoose 3. Chic navy tank from Madewell 4. Reversible yellow tote (the other side is yellow/white stripes … LOVE) from LandsEnd (!really!) 5. Navy wellie boots also from LandsEnd

I’ve been so inspired by this nautical thing lately that I designed a new personal stationery design called Newport Stripes. It’s live now on the site in our personal stationery section. You can switch out the anchor for another motif (like a star or a birdie), and change the stripes, colors, fonts, etc etc etc.

Here’s the same design in a different color palette — printed for my bff’s daughter’s very first trip to overnight camp:

sweet summer soirée: a lobster bake outfit

While I have never been to a lobster bake (I’m more of an oyster roast girl myself … think flip flops, jean shorts and cold beers), my alter-ego would simply love a fancy beach party involving shellfish, white wine spritzers, and a kitchy outfit like this.

shown above: 1. lobster dress from anthropologie  | 2. rattan purse by tory burch  | 3. red sunglasses by kate spade  | 4. hand knotted rope bracelets  from knotworks | 5. black espadrilles with shells by nanette lepore

nautical stripes for spring

Every March the nautical stripes come out. I think it’s part of the “resort” or “cruise” collections at all the stores. You can count on it, just like every September plaid will make an appearance. I’m comforted by these classics! Stripes really put me in the mood for spring.

details: 1: set sail trousers (anthropologie) ::: 2: Nautical personal stationery and calling cards (delphine) ::: 3: nautical tote (l.l. bean) ::: 4: low heeled espadrille slides (old navy) ::: 5: pin tuck white shirt (loft) ::: 6: anchor charms (cardsandcraft, etsy) ::: 7: rope necklace (brooklynrehab, etsy) ::: 8: nautical striped scarf (h&m) ::: 9: vintage brass anchor locket (thebumblingbird, etsy)

I’ll admit that I have more than a couple stripey tees in my closet, including this new one by Jean Paul Gaultier for Target:

Because one entire side of the shirt is open, I also bought a box of safety pins. I plan to wear a white tank underneath, and also “sew” it up with different sized safety pins. It’s going to be my beach & pool coverup this summer.
