Week O’Nautical – Beach Sweater

I  gave in to my Week O’Nautical Wish List… hello new nautical shorts.  You know what goes great with nautical shorts during Week O’Nautical?… beach sweaters!  Memorial Day can be cool and cloudy or warm and sunny which is why pairing a beach sweater with a pair of shorts is an effective way to dress for the long weekend.

Beach sweaters are lightweight, usually with some sort of open weave and perfect for a little warmth but also keeping you a little cool.  Ideal for places like the beach when the cool breeze can hit or when the warm sun can, well, warm.  I’ve had this sweater for a while now from mark. but I just recently learned to love it.  In the spring it pairs perfectly with shorts.

These Old Navy shorts couldn’t be a better pairing for my nautical look with my beach sweater.  I’m so glad I got them, they’re unbelievably comfortable and as we know, #1 on my wish list.

Accents of coral are just the nautical pop of color I needed in my clutch and flat sandals.  Navy and white are so classic and neutral that any of your summer colors go great with them.  This ombre clutch from mark, the mark. Fade To Fab Clutch $30, is going to be in heavy rotation this summer.  It’s so fun and functional!  Slightly oversized, extra pockets and a killer summer hue!  Check the inside:

Because even in a casual outfit I need a little glam, the mark. Clear Choice Necklace adds a nice sparkle.  Paired with an arm party, graphic earrings, some sunnies and my favorite nude lip and bronzed cheek my nautical look is finalized.  I mean what’s the kick-off to summer without some brozner (mark. Caliente Glow) and some sunnies (mark. Throw Some Shade Sunglasses)!?

The Ibiza collection has a special place in my heart.  It’s the exact campaign when I joined mark. in 2011, pre blog, so I don’t have any looks but it’s what introduced me to these Instant Vacation releases and I’ve been forever smitten and brings me 4 years later to the Buenos Aires Vibe collection!

Destination:  Buenos Aires!  Cobblestone streets, neoclassical mansions, surly tango parlors… Welcome to South America’s chicest metropolis, where old world elegance meets contemporary cool.  Today’s biggest decision:  Explore the bohemian barrio of La Bocca?  Shop the posh boutiques of the aristocratic Recoleta neighborhood?  Or maybe just linger over a cortado at one of the city’s cafes, staring at the impeccably dressed locals, aka portenos?  Either way get ready for a night on the town, weber the clubs start thumping at 2am and you’ll dance till dawn.  This is Buenos Aires… let our fashion and fragrance take you there!”

Check back for my reviews and looks from this collection that will fit your summer vacation no matter where you go!  Here’s a few looks from the collection and Lucy Hale I’m totally loving!
