Have you heard of Sailor-Sailor? This Connecticut based clothing brand is made in America and has so many dresses/tops/skirts with dozens of nautical patterns. While “preppy” can be defined many ways, Sailor Sailor is preppy in the truest sense of the term – like pieces you stumbled upon in a cute shop in a small beach town. The patterns are whimsical and fun, the fabrics are durable and hot-weather friendly, and the fit is truly flattering.
You know by now I’m a sucker for a sailboat pattern! Joe and I were engaged on a sailboat and he gave me a gold Tiffany sailboat necklace on our wedding day. I love the use of shades of blue on this dress and how it looks worn by the water.
We haven’t had a truly hot summer in Michigan in years, but this summer looks like it’s gonna be a hot one! I love hot weather so I don’t mind, but now I’m more mindful of the dresses I wear to endure the heat. I reach for sleeveless dresses to keep me cool, and the fabric of the Sailor Sailor dress isn’t thin, but it is lightweight and cooling. It’s not see-through one bit!
Check out Sailor-Sailor’s line, even just to see all the cute patterns. There’s many great navy/white options are well as some preppy pink and green ones that are really nice!
