Most Wanted Mondays - Set sail

I have only been sailing once. My family and I rented a small sailboat one day while in Rhode Island. Since both of my parents grew up there they know how to sail and all the terms that come along with it. My dad tried to explain to us what each thing meant and when you had to move. My rebellious middle school self just let all the information in one ear and out the other. When it was time to have the sail move to the other side of the boat everyone quickly ducked to the other side except me. The boom(?) nearly knocked me into the ocean. Whoops. Thankfully my dad caught me in time. I haven't been sailing since. Aside from me nearly being knocked overboard it was a lot of fun. Yeah, yeah...get on to the goods, right? For today's post I thought a nautical theme would was appropriate since I am currently missing the ocean.

1. ModCloth - Rachel Antonoff Crimson and Collars Dress.

2. ModCloth - Merry Mariner One Piece.

3. ModCloth - Sip at Your Own Risk Tumbler.

4. ModCloth - Yawl Come Back Dress.

6. ASOS - Liquorish Scenic Boat Print Dress.

7. ASOS - Sailing Boat Over The Knee Socks.

8. ASOS - ALDO Chiou Floral Boat Shoes.

9. ASOS - Sugarhill Boutique Sailor Dress.

10. Atpalicis - Blue sailor wolf.

  1. It was a good thing you didn't get knocked overboard. Sailing looks kind of glamorous but it doesn't appeal to me since I get seasick. I do like a little nautical style though :) Knox the Nifty Knit Narwhal is too cute!

    Ian & Rena thank you for your sweet comment! Happy Monday!

    1. I am so glad I didn't get knocked overboard. I probably would never consider sailing again. I am sorry you get seasick. I love being out on the ocean. My roommate has a knit narwhal and it is adorable.

      Of course :]

  2. Love your choices! The last time I was on a boat I had really bad seasickness - granted it was going over the Irish Sea but it was in a huge passenger ship so the idea of being on anything smaller and on a rough sea makes me sick thinking about it!

    1. Oh no! I am sorry to hear that. It is so pretty being out on the ocean. I love when it gets really wavy. So many people get seasick though unfortunately.

    1. It was alright - sailing that is. I just prefer to go fast over the waves :] The sailing style of clothing is great though, thank you :]

  19. I really like nautical stuff, I also love mermaids although yeah, sadly, they aren't real. That modcloth bathing suit is gorgeous! I've never been sailing, I love the water but I get so sea sick.

  20. Okay, mermaids are totally real! So are sea monsters.
    Anyways, I love the nautical theme too. I love that shark cup and that bathing suit. I just wish the abdomen part wasn't so shiny haha

    1. Ha. I love that cute sailing clothes can make people miss the ocean. The ppcollar is one of my faves - I love that you shortened it to ppcollar because it is such a pain to keep writing out. I will probably steal that. Thanks :] That wolf picture is so sweet. I was afraid he was getting lost in the clothes.

  22. Oh dear LORD!! Those knitted narwhals might just be the cutest things ever.
