Anchors aweigh

anchor dress

I know that nautical prints are sort of a retro wardrobe staple, but I didn't own any anchor-embellished dresses until recently. I'm not a huge fan of navy blue, and because a lot of sailor-esque dresses tend to use that color, I was never really drawn to them. When I saw this dress from Heart of Haute, I immediately took a liking to the silhouette and use of chambray fabric. Since I live about 5 minutes away from part of the Erie Canal, I headed to a nearby park for a change of pace.

I found the fit of the Hillary dress to run true to size, and I really ended up loving this more casual piece. I have so many fancy dresses (and rarely have occasions to which I can wear them), so this is a great addition to my closet. It also gave me an excuse to wear my Erstwilder platypus brooch! I know they're venomous, but I think they're so cute and I've always wanted to meet one! For now, I'll settle for this charming little brooch instead.

I'm so excited because I leave for California tomorrow to visit Ashley! It'll be my first time ever on the West Coast. We have so many fun things planned, and I can hardly wait to see her! I have a couple of posts scheduled during my trip, but if you want to see what I'm up to while I'm there, be sure to follow along on Instagram!

  2. Fabulously cute dress! I have such a thing for nautical when it's done in unexpected (aka, not just red/white/blue, which are great, too, but variety is the spice of life) colour palettes.

  4. I'm not into sailor dresses, either, but I would totally wear this one! I like the anchor print much better than a navy blue sailor dress. And it fits you so perfectly! I love the platypus brooch, too (I didn't know they were venemous!). So adorable!
    Ah! I have fun visiting Ashley! I can't wait to see your adventures together!
