Anchors Aweigh

My Threads: Sweater: J.Crew Factory, Skirt: H&M (similar), Pumps: Target, Bag: Calvin Klein, Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Forever 21, Necklace: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors

Confession: I'm obsessed with all things nautical. I'm thinking this obsession stems from growing up by the beach. Or maybe just because beach and nautical themed things are amazing. 

In case you don't believe me, you can come to my apartment and see for yourself. You'll be overwhelmed by all the shells, seahorses, and boats covering every wall and surface. Not real boats, my apartment isn't that big. When we moved in, Marc had to stop me from covering the floor in sand and using beach chairs as furniture.

That didn't happen, I'm not that crazy. I just keep a sandbox with an umbrella on the patio instead. 

Anyway, my love for nautical and beach themed home decor also translates into my wardrobe. Hence this sweater covered in anchors. I used my better judgment and decided not to pair it with my anchor necklace, anchor purse, and sand dollar earrings. 

I think I'll go watch some Gene Kelly now.

Happy Hump Day!

  11. Umm, can we be best friends forever? I'm pretty much in love with everything nautical, and Gene Kelly was my teenage heart throbe. I wrote a research paper about him in High School. And now I want nothing but that sweater in my closet.

  24. Hello,
    The pink and blue goes together well. I have beach room in my house so I can totally relate to all things nautical.

  26. Love your sweater! I didn't grow up by the water, so I have no justification for loving anchor print... unless my love for Disney and The Little Mermaid would count? Ha.

  33. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
