Anchors Aweigh

First of all, I would like to point out that I've always thought the term was 'anchors away'. I guess you learn something new every day!

I have a soft spot for all things nautical. I think it really started with my Grandpa. He loved anything to do with the ocean and seemed the happiest when he was at their condo in Georgia. I mean, the man wore shorts and boating shoes to climb an iceberg!

When my Grandpa passed away eight years ago (I honestly can't believe it's been that long) I found myself being drawn towards anything nautical -- anything that reminded me of him. I like to think I rocked the boat shoe trend way before it was even popular, all thanks to an old pair of my Grandma's. I recently just bought my first pair of Sperry's -- thank you Nordstrom Rack for the incredible discount -- and if I could wear them to work, they would be on my feet all day err day.


Nautical

There is something about navy and white stripes that is soothing to me. Add a little pop of red and my heart is content. Side note -- those flats need to be in my closet when I get home from work.

Do you have a soft spot in your heart for the nautical trend?
What is your favorite way to wear it?

I absolutely love everything on this board! Navy, stripes, anchors - all my summer faves. It's not "anchors away"? Since when?
