Vintage Regatta Fashion

Nautical is everywhere right now, which makes me such a happy girl. Because my Dad built small sailboats while I was growing up, I saw my fair share of nautical attire - from practical preppy (deck shoes, Op tees and corduroy shorts, Patagonia sailing shorts) to regatta party and trophy dinner attire (madras pants, red sport coats, canvas/ribbon sailboat belts, and lots of sailboat print dresses). Here are a few of my favorite nautical Etsy vintage fashion picks:
Mod Sailboat Dress from violetvillevintage
50's Vintage Navy Sailor Sweater from lollycrispvintage
Nautical Red Day Dress from Thrush
Cherry Corduroy Shorts from StopTheClock
Sailing Day Stripe Skirt from stilettogirl
Nautical Pin-up Girl Shorts from robinhartman
1960's Red Anchor Sweater Vest from FASHIONRERUN
Nautical Tri-color purse from joyelizabethG
Sailor Dress from TimelessVixenVintage
1950's Swimsuit from RockZombieOldies
Salty Sailor 1960's Blazer from Planetclairevintage
Madras Pendleton Jacket (for Men or Women) from 10thAvenueEast
Nautical Flag Belt (Men's) from madmenvintage
Sebago Topsiders Boat Shoes (Men's) from bootmeister

On a related note, Anita from the fabulous RollingHillsVintage made this super-cute nautical themed "Victoria Was A Sporting Woman" treasury over the weekend. My sad little screen shot doesn't do it justice. Click here to see the treasury full-size.

Did everyone have a nice weekend? Although we didn't spend the weekend on a boat, we did manage steal away to Crossville on Saturday for a hike and a trip to my favorite small town modern store. And yesterday we finally listed one of the Eames Lounge Chairs. We've decided to enjoy the other one for a while...

That's so neat your dad built sailboats. How cool! My brother-in-law lives on a sailboat in the summer and I love going on it.

Hmmmm, I was a sailor (on the Alaska Marine Highway)for 10 years and I never got to wear anything that cute. I guess I missed the boat on that one!

I just paid a visit to your small town modern store...good thing it's not in my neighborhood or even this side of the rockies or I'd be in big trouble.I have never seen so much mcm goodness in one spot. Ever!

I grew up near the shores of Lake Michigan and spent many summers sailing. Brings back good memories. Thank you for featuring my treasury.

my grandfather built boats, but not sailboats..I have been sailing a few times..love it but felt like we were going to tip over-so I'll stick to canoes..

LOVE the RHV treasury..great addition to an already great blog.. And you're right Anita DOES have a fabulous etsy shop..

Growing up in MA we would spend summers at the Cape and the nautical theme was everywhere. Now I'm in the middle of a desert - oh how I miss the ocean! You've found a wonderful selection of items that bring back so many fun vacation memories for me. Thanks for including my vintage shirt.
