I’ve been (seriously) obsessing about Kiel James Patrick for the past two years after I stumbled across the sailor bracelet inspired collection on pinterest. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until this past February I was gifted a KJP Lanyard Hitch gem. If you're not familiar with the brand, check them out!
Why do I love KJP?
I am most definitely partial to the nautical style of New England (wait for the post on my DIY living room) since many of my summers growing up were spent at the local yacht club on Long Island. So call me biased, but KJP company exudes an image that leaves me reminiscing about the regattas, old fashions, salmon colored trunks, coastal living, and life on the Great South Bay. With a chic coordination of classic yet contemporary styling, this brand has created a following by utilizing social media to reinvent a traditional (and fabulous) lifestyle. I find myself scrolling through instagram and facebook liking every photo the company posts- from mimosas on the deck, duckboots in the snow, to proposals by castles in Ireland… Yes, you read that right. Kiel proposed to his blogging better half, classygirlsweargirls aka Sarah KJP at a castle… in Ireland. Swoons.
Here are a few products that I have on my radar, AKA I’ll be buying by the end of summer:
Turk's Head Knot Collection:
Ocean Link’s Collection:
The company also has other products like belts, bow ties, headbands and apparel… my heart, for now, is set on their Anchor bracelets and Atlantic Pearl Collection.
Finally, everything is made in America and is stamped on it's signature anchor clasp. That’s always a win.
All week I've been trying to break in my new Ann Taylor Rhea Pumps (which, by the way, A+ for comfort for 8+ hour days) for the wedding I am in this weekend. After a long and tiring week, I needed a slight reminder of the sassy hell raiser within. Try and tell me you don't feel fan-fucking-tasticly fabulous and kick ass after listening to this.

Enjoy Thirsty Thursday and have a great (& safe!) Memorial Day Weekend!
