One (nautical) Dress Three Ways

Have you seen this anchor dress from Old Navy? I saw it online but wanted to try it on before buying. Halter/sleeveless rarely looks good on me but this dress is very flattering! I can't wait to wear it this summer. Another reader, Cyndy, emailed me to check if I had seen the dress and she said the same thing. She actually bought a second dress in the red pattern (tiny sailboats).

Look 1: Wear the dress as your swim suit coverup, by the pool or at the beach!

My sister wore the cutest jean jacket on our recent Pacific Northwest trip. It looks more put together than a sweatshirt or hoodie and is warmer than a cardigan but is not as dressy as a blazer. I think the white or traditional denim would go perfectly with this anchor dress.

I live in these Old Navy t strap sandals. I have them in gold and black from previous years. This year I ordered the coral above. I think I may get the navy and pink too. They are comfortable and hold up well

Look 3: Night time

The J.Crew blazer comes in multiple colors so you can match navy or white with the dress or go with a different shade of blue, "blue facade" (fun name!).
