I've been admiring lots of great nautical fashion in the shops lately - Blue, white and red stripes, polka dots, pretty bows, anchors and sailboats seem to be everywhere. I love the 1950s feel alot of the items I've seen have. This theme is definitely going to feature in my wardrobe alot this summer! I'm wondering if I can pull off red lipstick to go with a navy striped neck scarf ;)

Above are some of my favourite nautical accessories on Etsy this week. I do love the Skipper swimsuit from FablesbyBarrie, but as a starting point for the less brave, it might be easier to inject some sailor style into your wardrobe with the cute clutch bag from BagNoir or a some jewellery, like the Americana earrings by Summon or a charm bracelet like the Somewhere Beyond the Sea one from my own shop. A quick and easy way to update a white, blue or even red cardi with a nautical twist could be to change the buttons to these gorgeous little vintage bows from NicedaySupplies! I've already bought some of these for myself :)

  1. Hi Bet,
    Thank you so so much for adding my purse in ur block. You got great picks here :) Love them all :)

  2. Great selection and thanks for including my blue bow buttons! I love that pic by FablesbyBarrie, I really love the pin-up look.

    I'm currently doing some graphic design for a burlesque vaudville show, it's so much fun, I can't believe I'm getting paid to make pictures of things I love!

  3. Oh wow, what a cute gallery you curated! It makes us crave summer fun. What an honor you featured our Ahoy letterpress print in your post. Thank you kindly! What a surprise!
