This weekend I went to Annapolis for a day of shopping and exploring. Unfortunately I left my camera behind so I could only take photos with my phone. Annapolis was a charming city and I loved seeing all the navy guys (uniforms with multiple anchors).

Anchor door knocker

Sailboat doorbell

Some of the stores I went to:
The Pink Crab where I got these Lilly sandals for more than half off!

Sitting Pretty
The Black Dog where I got my mom a pink baseball cap for her birthday
Annapolis Ice Cream Company
Chesapeake Trading Company where I got this picture frame:

And US navy anchor magnet:

I really wanted to go to Star Monograms but it was closed :( I am still looking for somewhere I can get two of my totes monogrammed (maybe Alexandria?)

Hopefully you all had a great holiday weekend!


  1. i love visiting annapolis!

    love the pink crab! plat du jour is cute store worth mentioning on main street up near the starbucks located in the basement of an old hotel that they were restoring when we were there.

    to eat:
    did you make it over to buddys for their seafood buffet? it's so good, we ate their twice when we were there a couple of months ago!

    also, phillips seafood - another awesome seafood place worth checking out!

    ...it's a great place to get away for the weekend! hope you had a great time, i can't wait to go back! crab, crab and more crab! yummy!

  2. do you know if they had a 9 in those navy little anchor sandals? i should call them and find out, sounds like you got an aweseme deal - lucky you!!!

  3. wow, you found some great stuff kate!

  4. I love Annapolis. I actually almost went to the Naval Academy. Last minute decision not to go.

    As for the monogramming, have you checked your college bookstore? Our school did it at a discount. They sent the stuff out every Monday and it came back the following week. It was fairly cheap, and they did a great job!

  5. LOVE downtown Annapolis! Wish I could navigate it better ;o)

  6. I looove the door knocker -that would look great at our house. As for navy boys well - who can complain at that??
