Lilly Pulitzer Nautical Summer

Cool sea breeze, sand between your toes, and the sound of the waves. That’s music to my ears. But if you’re temporarily landlocked like I am for the next few weeks, bring the nautical world anywhere with some gorgeous selections from Lilly Pulitzer’s summer collection. The nautical look is always a classic and is easy to achieve. Pair nautical navy with crisp white and it’s a winning combination. Add a pop of red, pink, or yellow for extra flair.

Lilly Pulitzer’s embellished Aude top is positively the “knot-tiest” top you’ll find this summer. I adore the rope embellishment on the flattering empire shirt. It’s comfortable and easy to wear.

The Raquel dress is back again this season. Lilly fans love the comfortable fit of the dress and nautical details like the rope belt. I love it that I can wash this at home and that it does not need to be dry cleaned! Beach Club Blue Docksider is the perfect nautical print.

My next pick is flying out of stores! Get your Winona bow top while it’s still available. Many sizes are already sold out online at, and many stores are reporting limited quantities in stock. In Bright Navy, it will match all of your Lilly and looks fabulous with crisp white shorts and sandals.

Since I believe that you can never have too many Murfee scarves, I added this nautical scarf to my current wish list. Wrap a scarf on your bag and stay comfortable in over-air-conditioned buildings in the summer or on a cool summer evening. The sailboat motif of the Take Me Away print is perfect until fall!

Sandals are a summer staple in my wardrobe. The anchor hardware of the Lilly Pulitzer summer sail away sandal is stunning and adds nautical flair to the simplest outfit. Love!

Don’t worry about getting your McKims wet at the pool. Wear a pair of jelly sandals instead of leather sandals. I adore the jelly sandals…and the price!

Do you love wearing nautical styles in the summer? What is your favorite look?



  1. I love nautical year round but especially in the summer!

  2. So true, Kayce! Nautical is always in season! xoxo
