Live In The Nautical

Author: K.M. Sutton

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!

  “Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.” ~ Rumi Change Things are changing.

What Do I Wear?!?! Dudley Season

“A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.” ~ Unknown Dudley Season First Fourth day of fall and I think I am more excited about it being Dudley season. Though who am I kidding? It was Dudley Season in July, when I was at the beach huddled under towels and their fleeces attempting to keep warm, because I do not ….

Summer’s Swan Song

“We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.” ~ Henry Rollins Summer’s Swan Song I wasn’t going to post until September 22, but it has been a tradition in years past to post on Labor Day about my summer and what usually begins a newish year as the ….

Wanderlusting: Boulder Loop

“When you go to the mountains, you see them and you admire them. In a sense, they give you a challenge, and you try to express that challenge by climbing them.” ~ Edmund Hillary Re-Discovering My Hometown  It is funny, because I feel like it has been a hot second since I did a Wanderlust post, but in actuality I ….

The Ins and Outs of Tula Skincare

“All the makeup in the world won’t make a difference without great skincare.” ~ Khloe Kardashian My Skin Taking care of my skin has always been incredibly important to me. While I love the sun, I use sunscreen like it is my day job and hide my face under wide brimmed hats to the point people laugh because their is ….

Wanderlusting: OOB

What DO I Wear?!?! Summer Sun Daze

“I’m a die-hard lover of high-waisted skirts with crop tops.” ~ Jillian Hervey Never to Old In June, I made an Instagram post reflecting on when and IF someone is to old to wear a crop top. Their were a lot of opinions, but the general consensus (admittedly because my friends are kick ass) was that you are never to ….

Friday Favs August 2020

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie Grateful Framily, I truly am touched and so utterly grateful for the messages ….
