{Navy + Nautical}: A Palette Navy Blue, Camel + White

{Navy Blue, Camel + White}

One thing I've always said was if I could have planned a second wedding {same groom of course}, it would probably would have been a nautical themed wedding. Maybe it's because I simply love the relaxed feeling that being by the water brings... Or maybe I happen to be slightly obsessed with sailboats and seashells? Whatever the case may be... one thing is for sure! I love this palette and I'm absolutely smitten with the overall feeling it captures.

Details We Love
Striped Dress + Save the Dates by Swiss Cottage Designs + Love Jenna
Admittedly, stripes are another love of mine right now. I think the visual impact that they have really makes them great. Plus, who doesn't love the idea of incorporating subtle nods to a nautical theme throughout your wedding day decor? It's the sort of theme where you can really pull off a sort of casual elegance that you might not see elsewhere. So what do you think? Are you liking these ideas?
