It’s a cold and blustery day today, the kind where your bones shivers and a hot cup of tea just won’t cut it. But all this horrible rain has one upside (if you can call it that) it has me summer dreaming. That’s why I’ve been inspired to create this nautical board even when it’s ship-wrecking weather out there.

What I love about the nautical theme is that it’s so much more versatile and playful than it sounds. You can channel it with some well-placed stripes and navy or go for a totally different palette and plenty of driftwood. You can see what I mean in the images below.

I’ve also included three of my favourite bridesmaid dresses for channeling the nautical theme, the Davina and Bailey (both in Midnight) and the Dani Long in Sea of Love. Yep, that’s right, the Sea of Love. You can’t get more nautical than that!
