I am always drawn to anchors. Was I a swashbuckler in a past life? Or, perhaps my subconscious is pushing me to the open waters? [Insert alternative theory involving the sea as a metaphor for freedom and adventure here.]
Anchors are a little preppy, a little macho, and plenty summery. Check out some of my favorite seaworthy finds from an interwebs cruise. Ahoy, mateys!
