Trend Report - Nautical

The nautical theme always seems to become trendy every summer, but I really like the twist that keeps popping up this time around - the great rope necklaces make a bold and interesting statement piece that will update a simple outfit.

Here are some great nautical themed photos that will hopefully inspire you as well!

I love this great ship that is hanging in the middle of a room like a chandelier.

Here are some of the great rope necklaces that I was talking about.

Of course sailor shorts (or trousers) are always a classic.

More rope necklaces.

Ropes showing up everywhere!

Even more rope necklaces.
