Sail into Summer with Nautical Stripes!

Nautical pieces are a must for every fashionista's closet. Just make sure the stripes aren't too broad or wide because you might end up looking like a prison inmate circa 1920!

this is my on my lust list:

a Marc Jacobs Nautical Dress This retails for about $270!

but fear not my fellow fashionista's. This look can be easily recreated for a lot less!

a cute nautical shirt like these ones below can be paired with a black skirt to re-create this look. take heed:

here are some more cute options:

for a smaller strip there is this American Eagle Tank for under $10

If you want to spice things up you can change the color or go with a bolder print! I love this BDG Urban Outfitter's Tank

pair one of these 2 cute skirts from Urban Outfitters ($29 and $38 respectfully) and you've got yourself a smashing new outfit, captain!

On the f.R.i.N.G.e!!

Fringe is a must have style for the summer. It has been spotted everywhere from vests to purses and most importantly..shoes!! But tread carefully my fellow fashionista's because too much fringe will have you looking like a hippie or Pocahontas. Luckily for you, I've done some research and found you some awesome summer sandals...check it out!

These super cute Camel Faux Suede Fringed Gladiator Sandals from Torrid are only $29!!!!

Overstock has a beautiful pair of Steve Madden fringe sandals available in black, natural, or chestnut. These are a bit more expensive at $52.99, but I think they're well worth it.

Urban Outfitters has an affordable pair (that I happen to own myself -in tan!) Luckily for you they reduced the price from $48 to only $29!

In the mood for some color?!? Not a problem! Just check out these colorful fringe flat sandals from Metro Style for a cool $34.99


Need Something dressier? I have you covered!

Payless has these flat black fringe sandals for $24.99

DSW has these cute 3 1/2" high fringe sandals for a night out on the town! rawr.

and lastly. I found some awesome fringe wedges (another summer must have) from Lebo's for 40.00!
