Feeling Yachty?

Spending the weekend at the Montauk Yacht Club (pictured above) totally got me in the mood for all thing nautical. That and looking forward to spending some time on my in-laws sailboat this weekend -- and yes, Anonymous Commenter from a previous post (have I mentioned how I despise anonymous comments??) Gray will be sporting his infant life preserver -- has made me obsessed with all thing nautical.

Although some nautical interiors can be on the kitchy side, there is something about all of that crisp white paired with cool blue that makes me instantly calm.

Now, if I didn't still have 20 pounds of baby weight to lose, I'd be sporting one these nautical little numbers over the holiday weekend.

These Vineyard Vines totes are the perfect bags for sailing, shopping or as an overnight bag. Love 'em!


Oh, and you can't forget your non-marking boat shoes courtesy of Sperry

Yes, and this is what we look like while we're sailing (in my dreams). Doesn't the "dad" in the photo look like a maniquin? Creepy, no?

This is the oh-so-glamorous reality. That would be me at the helm...what was I saying? "Arrrrrrgh, matey"??? Who knows.

These shorts would be perfect for the boat (also courtesy of J Crew).

These Lands End totes are the quintessential boat bag.


Loving the tangerine color of this beautiful beach towel from Lands End paired with the navy accessories.


And we can't forget about the bambinos...




All found at Janie and Jack - too cute.



Happy 4th Everyone!

Laughing at the anonymous comment comment! ; )
That pic of the family is a little creepy, especially the dad, but everything else is just fabulous! Have a great time on the sailboat.

I love the nautical inspiration you've put together! Blue and white in all forms are a great combination! Happy 4th!

Great post - I love all the nautical themed items (and decore). And what would we all do without JCrew?
