Who else wants to be on boat right now, savoring the warm sunny rays and breathing in the salty summer breeze… cocktail anyone? Yep, that’s my ultimate Friday fantasy this time of year: when winter gets way too long and spring just can’t seem to get ahead of steam, just take me to the beach, plop me on the deck with a glass of wine, and lets set sail.
So in honor of the 30th year celebration of the Palm Beach International Boat Show taking place this weekend in Palm Beach (we’re talking mega yachts and all sorts of boys-with-toys eye candy) I teamed up with J. McLaughlin to bring you the best of Nautical Chic so that all of us can at least dress the part while waiting for our ship to come in…
If you build it, or rather dress for it, it will come.
J. McLaughlin’s spring/summer collection is ultra fabulous in so many ways. Not only is the clothing classically driven, when it comes to great quality, weight, and color palette, but the cutting and tailoring of their dresses, shirts, sweaters, and shorts have taken on a more youthful slender shape which in my opinion makes this brand one to not only watch, but to stock up on before the word gets out. JMCL is back.
But if that isn’t reason enough to get you to head over to the J. McLaughlin site, then let’s talk about the amazing accessories line that is sending everyone flying from their Florida stores with giant bags full of stunning sun hats, creative belts, gorgeous dip-dyed pareos, and totes for every big, small, and just fun occasion. It’s a total dream collection that will immediate transport you to standing on the shores, sands, and sailboat teak of summer’s chicest moments.
All aboard, ladies. See you, and your nautical chic stripes, on the high seas.
