Hello-Hello, welcome to an almost-weekend here at The Prepatorium. It’s Friday, the monsoon seems to have finally abated: we actually have sun shining and it’s just plain gorgeous. It seems like a good time for some Friday Fun with a nautical slant, we begin with some amazing cakes.
The next come via Alana Scully Photography/Style Me Pretty (L) and Arte de Ka Cakes (R).
Here we see a trio of nautically inclined cakes via Bird’s Party Blog.
This one is by Miso Cakes, the photo comes via The Cake Blog.
I like the Nautical Stripes Charm Bracelet from C. Wonder, and the Blue Nautical Stripe shoes by Zara are cute.
More jewelry, Betsey Johnson’s Nautical Theme Necklace,on the left, the Nautical Knot Bracelet is by Madewell.
Other jewelry options include the Urban Outfitters Earrings or our Needlepoint Anchors Bracelet.
When it comes to apparel there’s no shortage of items at J. Crew, like the Anchor Tee Shirt and the Linen Pocket Anchor Tee.
Equipment’s Whirlpool Anchors silk shirt is on the left, on the right we show the Moschino Cheap & Chic Anchor Heart T-Shirt.
For your MOTH (Man Of The House) perhaps the Shanghai Anchor Smoking Slippers or J. Crew’s Lightweight Pattern Socks?
For the wee Prince, a few styles from Danish brand ej sikke lej, the Sailboat Owl or Sailor Dog tees.
From the same shop, your very young Princess In Training may enjoy the onesie, if a bit older the tee could work.
Ralph Lauren offers some darling onesies: a vintage print, along with an embroidered navy style.
One of my all-time favorite infant items: the needlepoint Baby Booties from By Paige.
By Paige also has footwear for grown-up girls.
But perhaps my favorite nautically influenced shoes come from J. Crew, the Bow Pumps in Ratti Regatta.
They’re not terribly practical they are so distinctive, once worn they are not easily forgotten. But they are darling. Perhaps one would get more bang for their buck by using their pin money for these. The yummy-looking sailboats on the left are by Pink Martinis and Pearls, the collection on the right was shared on The Cake Blog.
Our final item is something new to the Princess, the Reilly tote from Crabberrie Bags, featuring a vintage boat on the water.
We hope you enjoy a splendid weekend, be it on land or at sea.
