Nautical Style for Summer

Nautical on the East River

Nautical is one of the easiest trends to pull off. Navy + white. Keep it crisp, keep it simple. We had a lovely day last week when we set out to shoot the Monday Mingle photos so we went to the closest beach–the Brooklyn Bridge Park.

That’s Jane’s Carousel in the background–a favorite spot to treat the kiddos. (watch a youtube video about it Jane’s Carousel video)

Nautical Fashions

Since I was in a nautical mood, I pulled on this new sweater I bought in Nice. It’s so soft and made of very loosely woven cotton. I slipped on sandals and white jeans and was pretty much done. Sadly, I don’t think you’ll be able to get this sweater in the US, so I added a link to a cool on from ModCloth.

When it comes to accessories, think stripes and ropes. It’s all about setting sail. The necklace is from LOFT, but I don’t see it on the website. It’s from this season.

We shot these photos by the DUMBO Brooklyn Waterfront with  who also shoots and edits our videos.
