What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 75 – Anchors Away

Anchors Away


Fun fact: I was a camp counselor at an overnight YMCA camp for two summers. And I loved every single second of it. Being paid to wear shorts and teach archery and get a tan (oh and take care of 6-8 eight-year-olds) was some of the best times of my life and is still my favorite job ever!

Anyways, I was also a lifeguard at camp, which means I also got to drive the pontoon boat (also one of my favorite things to do)! I had this goofy saying that we couldnt stop the pontoon boat and drop the boat’s anchor until everyone of my campers yelled, “Anchors away!” at the top of their lungs. Cheesy summertime fun, for sure.

So shall we all say it together?


Items from the Look:

  • I have been all about anchors and nautical lately, on a so-far unsuccessful search for an anchor to hang on the wall! And I LOVE those wedges, just ordered them a few days ago. I tried them on I the store and comfy too!

  • Katy B

    Really cute skirt! And top. And well, all of it.
    Also– have to be super nerdy here, but I recently learned that it’s actually “Anchors Aweigh” not “Anchors Away”. “Aweigh” meaning that the anchor has cleared the ocean floor so they are good to go. I know- mind blown, right?

  • I think I need that skirt! So cute!
