Fashion Cents: Sail Into Spring

I live close to Lake Michigan and the boat owners are preparing their lovely ladies to sail the high seas (okay, low lakes) this season. Although I am not a boat owner, I love the nautical look with the exception of boat shoes. I actually hate boat shoes and can't figure out why they won't go away. I blame it on Charlie Sheen and his character on Two and A Half Men...but as usual I digress.

So here are a few tips for getting a nautical look (minus the boat shoes) that will work on land this spring and won't break the bank:

1. Search for blue & white treasures in your own closet
2. Chose embellishments that say "ahoy matey"
3. Don't go overboard
Now watch the video to see how it all comes together.

Happy sailing (into spring)!
