Nautical Stripes

August 10, 2010

Nothing says summer quite like crisp blue and white stripes.  They are just so oceany.  I of course am terrified of the ocean, and most of the creatures that can be found there (sharks, giant squid, creepy things that live in the deep…).  But that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy my blue and white stripes from the sand.  Well since “the sand” is a gillion miles away from my land locked desk, I’ll just enjoy these from here.  Here are a few recent etsy favorites.

[ A beardy sailor print from NanLawson ]

[ Stockholm messenger bag from ikabags, also in red and yellow and green ]

[ Vinyl whale decal from SeaLubbers ]

[ Navy Blue Wedges at Dear Golden Vintage ]

[ Handpainted wooden pirate dolls from mooshoopork ]

[ Adorable striped plushie camera from onelatenight ]

[ Hand knit baby booties from pleasantlyplumpknits ]

[ Upcycled T-shirt skirt by SnugglePants ]

All these beachy things are getting me thinking.  I need a vacation.  Who’s with me?

    ME! Pick me! I would love a vacation… and a set of the pirate dolls, and the baby booties. SO cute. You find the most adorable things.

    I’m totally up for a vacation!

    I’m also loving on the blue/white striped thing. I got a pair of pants that are blue and white striped sailor looking pants and I just LOVE them, they feel so fresh and beachy.

    The pirate beard looks like an octopus tentacle, full of suckers.

    And the shoes don’t have stripes–just thought I’d throw that out there. 😉

    Oh, that messenger bag is to die for… looking at these oceany pictures is helping me feel cooler already! 🙂

    I need a vacation, but not to the beach. Too much sand and sun and water makes me cranky. I love those blue wedgie shoes. Super cute.
