My love of nautical fashions knows no limits. I have unparalleled amounts of navy-and-white, Breton striped tees, rope bracelets and belts, Sperry Topsiders, jewelry with anchors, and more in my closet. There’s something classic, preppy, and charming about a hint of the seashore in your attire.

However, with the ease of recreating these sorts of looks, the trend can a bit played out.  And, we’re always looking for something new, unique and creative in the fashion world.

Cue The Ropes of Maine, a line of chic-yet-preppy bracelets made in Maine from marine ropes and hardware. The designer, Shana Ready, is a stunningly gorgeous grad of the Rhode Island School of Design (affectionately known as RISD) who spent time in New York and Boston before returning to her roots in Maine to found The Ropes.

The bracelets come in a variety of styles and colors– neutrals, neons, metallics, and more– in addition to the traditional nautical navy-white-and-pink or red-white-and-blue. There are new lines each season, and the amount of options are seemingly endless, proving Ready’s “innovative flare for mixing stylish trends with traditional materials.”

    These are adorable! I’m with you, Cori Sue… The sea can never be far from your heart when you love the ocean!

  2. I saw these over the summer in Lewes Deleware where I go every year with my fam. They were in a super cute lil boutique and I looooved them! I work at the DC Navy Yard and everything nautical is always a huge hit! These are fabulous!

  3. As a buoy collector & mimosa and nautical enthusiast, this giveaway makes me the happiest Maine gal. I adore all of Shana’s pieces, and don The Ropes during all seasons! Who doesn’t love a designer who’s goal is to “Mainerize the fashion industry?!”

  4. I am so in love with The Ropes Maine after discovering them in Baltimore, MD! I liked both pages on Facebook (Courtney Elizabeth) and I’m following both on twitter from @ceperk 🙂 Finger’s crossed!
