Nautical Summer Clothing Collection

When I saw this dress I knew that I wanted to create a nautical look with it. It’s not your traditional nautical colors but black and yellow are secondary nautical colors. This black and white stripped strapless dress is perfect for the summer heat. The material is light weight and will keep you cool during the summer. Because the dress has a low neckline having the perfect necklace is a must. To help give this look  a nautical theme the anchor necklace was the best idea I had! I really do love the anchor necklace. The bird necklace came with it but I would probably not wear the two together. The nude aviator sunglasses match the necklaces and pair nicely with the yellow in the dress. I could not decide which shoe and purse combo I liked more. I decided to go with wedge and backpack for day trips or outings. I like the black and white ballet flats and the zig zag tote more for evening events. Having kids I need big bags but hate carrying a diaper bag. Both the backpack and the tote are large enough for me to carry all my essentials without looking too much like a Mom bag.
