On Vacation With... Style Obsession

This is Jessica from Style Obsession. I can't remember the last time I've taken a real vacation, but this summer I'm dreaming of a New England escape.

It's no secret that I'm smitten with anything nautical - Breton stripes, anchors, rope motifs, you name it. Maine would be just the place to indulge in my seafaring fascination - and maybe even learn to sail.

One of my favorite parts of any vacation is carefully editing my wardrobe. For this outdoorsy ocean escape, I'd keep with the nautical theme, opting for crisp cottons and relaxed knits. Here are some of my top picks.
