i’m wearing: voom anchor print dress (really old), jcrew bubble necklace (i got mine on ebay), MIA rope heel sandals and my michael kors watch.

i got this dress YEARS ago on one of our many trips to palm springs. we are SO overdue for a trip to the desert. both my husband and i LOVE hot dry weather. it is so fun to stay at the kitschy hotels and rent bikes to ride along the blvd! so is anyone else in love with all things nautical print right now? this dress (now on major SALE) is calling my name and so are these earrings (although these are less than $4 for THREE pairs). and of course i can’t get enough of these shoes (last seen here). ahoy matey!

    I’m really loving whimsical prints right now, and am obsessed with the anchor print that seems to be everywhere. I was in J.Crew yesterday and they had several pieces. The colors in your dress are great, and that style looks so good on you! Love how you accessorized it with that statement necklace!

    Okay, you look adorable here – loving that J. Croo necklace 🙂

    I seriously think I am the only one not obsessed with anchor prints right now…does that make me strange? But, I’ll take a quirky bird print any day – maybe that says something about how long I’ve lived in the country?! LOL!

    I love the print of this dress! I’m all about fun prints- it’s a great and simple way to dress up an outfit. That JCrew dress you linked to is super adorable also!
    Right now I would take dry hot weather over this rainy muggy weather anyday! Maybe I need to come back to California 🙂

    I just bought an anchor top from J Crew. Nautical is the easiest summer style.

    This is a really cute dress, I can definitely see it on you and also Tara from Mix and Match! I just realized this morning that my jewelry is majorly lacking in stud earrings! They’re all chandalier, dangling, or hoops. Going in to F21 tonight to find some studs, pyramids, and all sorts of stuff…

    Love your dress. I actually about the J Crew dress than felt guilty about the price and returned it last week. Glad I did because it just got marked down again and additional 30% off!!! I got the dress for $28!!
