I grew up spending plenty of time at the beach. As a kid, I was constantly taken to Malibu beaches in southern California where we would picnic and bask in the sunshine all day. Then from age 10 on, I lived in beach houses on the sand until I moved out as an adult. So it makes perfect sense that I am very frequently drawn to nautical items, from style (sailor-style apparel is my favorite) to homes, even tattoos (I have a big anchor on my arm and plan to get an old-timey mermaid someday.) Since I have no real plans of moving back to the coast, surrounding myself with stripes, anchors, and vintage beach items makes me happy.
