i will never drop anchor
When I went through sorority rush (“You mean,” as my daughter would say, “When the dinosaurs roamed the earth?”), I ended up pledging Delta Gama.
There were several reasons for this choice:
1) I liked the girls.
2) I wanted to live in their big, white, Colonial mansion.
3) The girls seemed to like me. (Always good to feel welcome when you’re about to have 112 female roommates.)
But perhaps most influential was the fact that their logo was an anchor, and I was/am/will always be… a sucker for anything nautical.
My favorite high-school boyfriend was–and still is–a boat fiend. (I mean, he’s still a boat fiend; not still my boyfriend.)
One of my all-time favorite movies is Something’s Gotta Give—set in the Hamptons and styled to perfection.
My favorite coat is a yellow-and-navy sailing slicker that I bought in Newport one summer. (And Newport is as nautical as you can get.)
Beach houses are my idea of heaven.
I’ll take a lobster roll and a lime-y gin-and-tonic over a burger and beer any day.
Nothing is as fabulous and enduring as wearing navy and white on a warm, spring day.
They say Nautical is back in style this year.
Yeah, right. Like it ever left…..
It’s my go-to look season after season. Yours, too?
