One of my favorite prints this year is the anchor print. It injects a splash of summer into everything that bears its emblem.
I found my first anchor-print item this year at Forever 21 – this blouse combines two of my favorite elements: bows and anchors. I wasn’t able to find a size small (or a medium) at the time, so came home with a large. The material is rather sheer and very lightweight so it doesn’t seem overwhelming even in a bigger size.

A few items in the same print (the star-anchor combination) as my top.

And a few things from J. Crew that have caught my eye. I will probably order them to try when they go on sale (though #3 & #6 are already on sale!).
