Every year for the May long weekend, we go boating with friends of ours up the BC coast. It's always one of the most highly anticipated trips of the year for me: a chance to fully unplug from daily life, relax, spend time with friends and the bf...and in nautical style, of course!
Below you'll find my must-haves for a nautical summer look, many items of which I've already picked up for my upcoming trip! Stripes, linen, coral and gold will all play a big part of my boating outfits- of course, with the weather here always uncertain, it's important to have a good variety of tanks, sweaters and jackets, so you're prepared no matter what.
For beauty, I want to keep my warm-weather routine simplified, so I found a BB cream, blush and lipstick that would keep my face looking refreshed without over-doing it. I searched high and low for the perfect BB cream for my insanely pale complexion; as we get closer to summer, a lightweight tinted moisturizer with SPF is a must. A dusting of coral blush and a swipe of vivid lipstick from London Drugs will keep the look flush! Oh, and I can't forget that John Frieda Beach Blonde Salt Spray...smells like summer in a bottle, and gives the perfect beachy waves.
I'll definitely be posting my outfits once I'm back, so stay tuned for more summer style inspiration!
