Droppin’ Anchor

Y’all! Old Navy’s new arrivals are driving me bananas- in the best way possible! For a nautical lover like me, I am in heaven, because they have literally covered every piece of clothing in anchors! It’s like a dream come true!

Now onto the outfit at hand… as soon as I saw this adorable sweater in the “new arrivals” section I snapped it right up! I have been seeing layering all over the place this season, seems every single blogger is layering a sweater over a button up (and adding a statement necklace of course). Well I just didn’t think it was for me- don’t get me wrong, it looks ah-dorable on everyone else, but I was afraid with my short new do it wouldn’t read quite “girly” enough. Well I was sure wrong- as soon as I gave layering a try I fell head-over-heels in LOVE! What a fun, preppy, classic look! I can’t get enough!

Is there a trend out there you are afraid to try? Let me encourage you to give it a try! At worst, its a good laugh (been there, done that), and at best its a new way to wear pieces you love. Take a chance!

I leave you with a favorite quote of mine:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. (Mark Twain)

Happy Thursday!
