I usually steer clear of any article of clothing that is patterned, overstated, or rather, anything other than a solid color. I surprised myself last year when I picked up this anchor printed top, immediately loving how much it reminded me of summertime, but only pulled it out of my closet once or twice in the last year. Since we celebrated the first day of summer this past weekend, I decided to give it one more chance to win me over – and it did just that. Pairing it with a navy skirt to give the look a monochromatic flair, suits my taste so much better than the bright color options I had opted for in the past. This look made me fall in love with this top all over again, and has guaranteed it a much more frequent spot on my summer wardrobe rotation.
