5 little things

i LOVE nautical. i’m sure you’ve noticed {yes, i am saying this with a little smirk because, well, look around…}.
i adore all things red, white, blue, green. nautical-inspired. complete with anchors & stripes & structure.
i saw these darling bow bracelets today and took my chance at winning one in the giveaway!

today i am sharing 5 of my favorite things right now and then adding this post to the Back to the Basics Blog where my sweet friend Julie hosts a monthly link up & with Friday Finds & Favorites.
