Nautical Chic

Nautical Chic by Amber Jane Butchart

I recently spotted Nautical Chic on the shelves at Juliska in Stamford and it's on my growing wishlist of coffee table books.

I started to compile some timeless nautical looks and this simple style caught my eye first.

I immediately thought of this Olivia Palermo outfit - one of my favorites. Now, to find that perfect cableknit sweater to wear season to season. And a navy peacoat. Can you tell I'm anxious for fall clothing?!

Bette Davis, 1935 (colorized). I'm pretty sure that every fashion blogger has posed exactly like this in their round shades over the summer.

My Pinterest perusing led me to this. Transform simple nude heels with this DIY knotted rope heels from Vogue Australia. This pair of Steve Madden heels is perfect for the project. Would be cute for a nautical themed engagement shoot with a navy dress.

 We can't forget the classic blue and white striped tee. Duchess Kate loves her stripes and says hi.

Yours truly! I've been into nautical fashion since the 80s.


  1. I still haven't ordered the book yet (totally forgot) but I can't wait to see it in person!

  2. Olivia P. can do no wrong - I need to scope that book out! xo, biana -BlovedBoston
