Party Girl: A Nautical Getaway

Today I have a special treat for you! The amazingly talented Jess Tierney, lead graphic designer at Bella Figura and a good friend of mine, is sharing her inspiration for her dream party. Jess officially has me dreaming of long summer days and preppy nautical stripes. You’re going to love this! Jess also has a fabulous blog so check it out!

My perfect party would be a nautical inspired weekend getaway with my closest friends to a dreamy beach house right on the ocean. I am all about celebrating in style with a fresh twist on the classic seaside color palette infused throughout preppy nautical décor. Just a few close friends clad in stylish outfits, sipping cocktails and enjoying a warm summer breeze with our toes in the sand – that’s my kind of party!
