I think at last count, I had at least 10 striped shirts in my closet. Not going to apologize for it- I live here in San Diego, a mere 10 minutes from the beach and a striped shirt with khaki shorts is my go to outfit for a walk on the beach or out in La Jolla.
I love the preppy look of nautical inspired fashion - it's definitely a classic look that transcends all trends.
Here are some great retailers that I love for nautical finds:
