Happy Monday, landlubbers!
Forgive me, for I am giddier than all get out and desperately trying to find my bearings because at the end of the week, Sammy is going on Vacay! Yes, in a few days I shall embark on a four day Fun Ship cruise with my man where we will sail away, sail away, sail away, (unnear the Orinoco flow) to the exotic city of Cozumel. Why the nautical nerves?
I'm excited, yet scattered, trying not to let the fact that it's the centennial anniversary of the Titanic sinking phase me while quelling the urge to growl "Argh" in my pirate voice whenever anyone at work annoys me. Instead, I'm searching the cyber seas for some cute cruiseworthy clothes and accessories so I can get all Lido-decked out on our Love Boat based spring break.
When it comes to cruise wear, it's so easy and expected to go all red, white and navy, but I'm looking for pieces that are a little less Sailor Moon and a little more subdued to rock both at sea and on shore. Here are a few of my favorite unburied treasures:
I'm all about themes and decided on a consistent motif to anchor my ensembles. So far, I'm stowing away these Star Anchor Shorts from Forever 21, featuring a barely there anchor print that could pass for little bluebirds from far away. I'll mix it up and out with a few neon crop tops I picked up, a faux denim bikini and these knotty yet nice Wood Anchor Boat Earrings from Topshop to give my look some extra weight.
As for ship baggage, this Anchor Print Bowling Bag from Asos will do. Don'tcha just love the quirky orange and cream combo that is anything but obvious?
Add some cutoff shorts, jeans, sarongs, basic tees and sundresses, and I should be in good ship shape, ready to report for port-of-call duty.
I'll be ashore thing.
