Fashion: Nautical Prints

BY TARA BURKE

Nautical prints always catch my eye. They instantly make me think of carefree days boating on a lake or sitting on a beach watching the sailboats go by. I found this shirt at a thrift store and loved how there was a big anchor shape knitted right into the fabric. I like how subtle the anchor is and I actually think it makes a greater impact being the same color as the rest of the shirt. I also think the cut of the neck is really interesting. It is a high, straight neck line with ribbed knitting, which you don’t see too often on today’s clothing. That’s one of my favorite things about thrifting, vintage silhouettes! I paired the look with some statement white earrings from my Mom’s collection, light-wash jeans and last but not least my favorite summer wedges! I LOVE these heels because I’ve never seen anything like them. They were made in Italy and have the words Dolce & Salato (Sweet & Savory) in Italian embroidered on them. To accompany the saying there is a slice of cake on the dolce heel and a savory egg dish on the right heel. They are so fun to wear and they certainly get people’s attention.
