Sailor or Safari?


I guess this morning I couldn't decide if I wanted to go nautical or leopard...so I did both! And I think it turned out okay - I love the color and shape of this leopard skirt. Honestly, both a striped top and a leopard skirt are basic essentials in my closet. On those mornings when I am standing there, bleary-eyed, thinking, "I have nothing to wear", these items always jump out at me (though not necessarily together). They both go with so many different items, and they both always look chic without being stuffy. I read somewhere that we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time, and I would think that stripes and leopard are definitely in my 20%!


I'm also crazy for anchors. I was a Delta Gamma in college (back when the earth was cooling), and our symbol was the anchor. Anchors are an ancient symbol of hope, but beyond that, I guess they always remind me of my sisters, some of whom are like real sisters to me. So I have a feeling that this necklace, while new, is quickly going to be part of my repertoire! 

How about you? What are your "go-to" items?
