This striped top is very nautical and affordable at only $12.95. The denim shorts were only $9.95! I sized up in the top for a slouchy fit, and I feel like this would be a great outfit to relax in with a beer after a race.
Theses are called the boyfriend shorts, and I'm sure I'll get at least $10 worth of wear out of them.
This colorful tunic blouse was $12.95. I love the bright colors and the print is lovely in real life. I could also see this working with wide leg linen trousers in the summer (if I ever found a pair that would look good on me).
This simple knit dress was $14.95 and I feel like this would be a quick and easy swimsuit coverup. Also would be a great weekend dress during the hot summer, paired with a pair of gladiators or Jack Rogers Navajo sandals.
I probably won't bring this blue ruffle dress on my trip, but I couldn't resist it! I love the ruffles, the navy color, and it's very floaty and lightweight. And the price tag is even better. $9.95. That's right, under $10 for this dress! At first I thought it was mismarked, but I checked the others and it was the correct price! I added this fun Forever 21 belt (available in brown/black here) and I think it will be a cute look for spring.
Some cute nautical themed items under $15 that I <3:
I actually have this tote and I love it! It can be folded up real small into my purse and fits a TON, whether I'm shopping at F21 or at Trader Joe's. I don't believe in spending a lot for a reusable bag, so this is perfect!
So there we have it, everything in this post was under $15! I know the nautical look is ubiquitous this spring (as it is every year it seems) but I have always loved it, whether it is "in" or not. I find it to be refreshing and classic, and now that I'm about to go sailing next week I'm even more attracted to it!
ETA: I just finished watching women's figure skating and Kim Yu-Na was amazing!! It was the most amazing Olympic performance I have ever seen and I am so proud to be Korean at this moment. I was definitely tearing up during the national anthem. It was Korea's first medal in figure skating ever and it was GOLD! She is absolutely magical on the ice.
