Week O’Nautical – Nautical Knots

Week O’Nautical – Nautical Knots

Let’s tie some nautical knots during Week O’Nautical!  Nothing is more nautical than a good blue and white striped top, but also super common.  Why “knot” step it up a notch with an off the shoulder version that knots on the side!?

Avon Striped Off The Shoulder Top

The Avon Striped Off The Shoulder Top is the perfect must have piece for Week O’Nautical.  I’ve been needing a basic top like this for some time so when this Avon one came out I took a chance and it paid off!  It’s super soft, the neckline can be worn regular or off the shoulder and you can untie the knot if you wanted to tuck it in, etc.

I paired it with a guard orange mini you might recognize from a previous Week O’Nautical look, but I’ve also worn this with jeans, white jeans like the mark. Nature Of The Bleach Jeans and shorts, so super versatile for your summer wardrobe.

Keeping it knotty I added this long knotted necklace (Loft), tie up wedge sandals, (mark. Wedge Issue Sandals) and my current favorite bag (mark. Isle Style Bag).

Happy Memorial Day with Nautical Nails

You got a sneak peek of my mani here and my pedi here so its no surprise what I’ve been sporting all week, but here’s a little more.

I wanted to do something different but I wasn’t very inspired.  After some google images searches I still wasn’t too inspired.  I knew I wanted to wear gold on my fingers and I knew alllacquredup.com did a great nautical flag manicure with last year’s China Glaze Anchor’s Away collection, so I took that idea and ran with it for my toes.

I have on the bright orange from my Julep intro box,  Natasha.  I then tapped off my big toe and did a diagonal block or Essie’s Midnight Cami, a sparkling deep navy.  I then used one of those Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen’s to do the line, which I can’t recall the shade right now but I have to say… eh.  They just don’t work as great as I want them to.  The flow isn’t even so I can never get the line to be how I want it, clean and precise.  However, it works for now.

For my mani, I used that same deep navy, Essie Midnight Cami,  as my accent nails.  I usually only do my ring, but I wanted a little extra impact this time.  The gold glitter on top is also from my Julep maven box, Oscar.  I did it in a gradient approach and I just loved how this color combo glittered in the sun with the dark navy base and bright gold glitter.  My regular gold polish used on the rest of my fingers is China Glaze High Tech.  I love this shade, its not to warm or cool and super metallic!  Check out how it looked with my arm party chillin’ at a weekend BBQ.

I’m of course wearing my Borrowed from The Boys Watch once again and my Cross Your Fingers Ring in gold both from mark.  The white bracelets I randomly found in my jewelry box and I think they’re from H&M years and years ago, but was pretty pleased I found them to wear with this weekend’s nautical looks!
