When I was back in my hometown, Ann Arbor, a few weeks ago, my best friend Sophie and I reminisced our old high school shopping days by hitting up the local mall! As we were perusing the racks of Forever 21, I kept seeing myself being drawn to stripes, blue, red, yellow, white, knots, BOWS… catch my drift?? All of these things were nautical-themed!! And then I come on bloggyland and I keep seeing it everywhere and am falling in love all over again by the blog post! So therefore, I bring to you some of my favorite nautical finds! And because I love this theme so much, you’re getting a double dose of eye candy!
