Feeling Nautical

Daily Look sandals c/o (similar here)

The Northeast has finally been hit with summer weather! It is such an unfamiliar yet wonderful feeling to be wearing shorts again. Summer is my absolute favorite time of year, not just for the obvious reason of being out of school, but also for the wardrobe possibilities. As much as I love a great coat, I prefer not having to think about layers. I love the feeling of freedom that comes with throwing on a light day dress or simple tank and shorts.

Today I'm dreaming of the sea in this nautical-inspired look. I absolutely love the crisp, clean feel of the summer season's nautical trend. It's one that rarely goes out of style and only needs to simplest pieces. This top from H&M is the perfect interpretation of the sailor style with its high neckline and boxy silhouette. It's the subtle details that make the look. What trends are you looking forward to this summer? Let me know in the comments below!
