How to incorporate nautical into Fall and Winter (part 1)

It's rare to find nautical pieces during fall and winter. But don't stress: you can make nautical work year round! I'm lucky to live in a place where you can wear flip flops and shorts pretty much year round so those can be the nautical details. If you live somewhere where that isn't possible then you need to think of other ways to incorporate nautical details. I will be doing a series of blog posts devoted to the nautical look year round.

1. Add brown to navy. I think navy is inherently nautical (duh!). The navy and white color combination is perfect for spring and summer. Add brown during fall and winter. I've blogged about this outfit before. I just love it! The brown bag and brown sandals make this look less summery. I think this outfit is perfect for the beginning of fall when it is still warm enough for shorts and sandals. As it gets cooler: add jeans and brown riding boots, striped sweater instead of t shirt. I think sailor striped shirts and sweaters are super easy to transition into fall and winter.



  1. I love this, great post! I def wear nautical stuff year round, I know that's shocking, ha

  2. Great tips! I definitely want to get a Petit Bateau or Saint James white and navy striped sweater this year.

  3. Mmm! I love all things nautical. I swear if my husband would let me, everything in our house would be nautical! Cute post.. excited for fall.. this post made me even more excited!


  4. Great tip! I pretty much live in my brown riding boots fall through winter and I have a navy peacoat. I should wear the two together :)
