Live In The Nautical

// Travel // Fashion // Lifestyle // Self-Love //

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!

Christmas Cards and Pictures

Getting Christmas Crafty

“For me growing up, Christmas time was always the most fantastic, exciting time of year, and you’d stay up until three in the morning.

What DO I Wear: Graphic Tees and Leather

Graphic tees are vibes. And I think they’re the basis of a lot of wardrobes, but that makes it challenging to distill what you’re brand means within a T-shirt. Virgil Abloh Graphic Tee Intervention You know that time (and by time, I mean tennis blog posts ago) I said I needed a Pink Lily intervention because I am obsessed with ….

Advent Calendar: Days 1 to 13

“Why is there an end of the year? Because the calendar imposes numerical order on time.

Guys, I FINALLY ….

‘There’s something about a Christmas sweater that will always make me laugh.” ~ Kristen Wiig “Ugly” Christmas Sweaters  I use to hate Christmas sweaters. I know! What? Me? Miss pseudo Santa Clause herself? But guys, let’s be real, they are NOT fashionable! Regardless of whether they are “Ugly” or not, they just aren’t. I feel like I have a pretty ….
