Fit for a Sailor

Hey everyone!

So I know I just did a fashion post yesterday... buuut I saw Lilly Pulitzer's new arrivals had been updated on her site and it had me feeling a little inspired.These four different nautical-inspired styles are perfect for a Memorial Day weekend, especially if you'll be near a beach or by the pool.

I love summer. I think maybe a little too much.

Casual and Cool
Nothing says vacation quite like a pair of crisp, white shorts (Anthropologie). 
They're even cuter paired with this sea-foam blue belt (Vineyard Vines). 
I'm also loving the hot pink accents on this clutch (Lilly Pulitzer) and cork wedges (Sperry Topsider).

Sail Away
I love the anchors featured on these sandals (Lilly Pulitzer) and stud earrings (Fornash). 
This knotted gold bracelet (Charm and Chain) looks great with a tan, and an adorable beach bag (Lilly Pulitzer) is perfect for stowing all of your summer necessities.  

Classic and Cool
This pretty, preppy look can be achieved with a trendy straw clutch (Vineyard Vines) and a delicate beaded tank (Anthropologie) - I love the color of this one!
Complete the look with a summer essential: seersucker (Sperry Topsider).

Get Crabby
Look pretty by the pool in this nautical striped bikini (J Crew), and accessorize with red accents.
I love these crab earrings (Fornash) and bold bangles (Charm and Chain). 
Don't forget your sunscreen, though! Pack it in this cute makeup bag (Vineyard Vines) and you'll be set.

What is everyone up to this Memorial Day Weekend? 

My family is having a cookout on Monday, and tonight I'll be attending Speed Street, a festival in uptown Charlotte. They always have great country singers!
My friend Kelsey and I at Speed Street a few years ago
I hope everyone has a great holiday! :)

Love, Caitlin
