Hello!! or should I say Ahoy? Ahem OK. So this week we're doing Nautical, something that I actually have vast amounts of in my wardrobe. Being a little bit rockabilly, I have more stripes than I care to admit in my wardrobe, along with lots of cute little cardigans. But instead of going full on pin-up nautical, I decided to go very casual. In part because I'm still getting to grips with my new hair and questioning where and how my former vintage wardrobe will fit in and in part because it is so completely and utterly miserable out there I really could not face getting dolled up today.
|Awww Sad Face....|
But I have to head over to my home town (quite by coincidence has a very rich fishing and nautical heritage!!) this evening as I have band practice tomorrow. My best friend Sara is having a baby and I'm covering her gigs over the summer whilst she has said baby, so I can't even stay in and get snuggled up. On the plus side I get to meet up with my lovely friends tomorrow!
|I think it might be because my lovely husband is so tall, but I look very "squashed" on this picture!! |
Oh and excuse the DIY paraphernalia in the background... Bad Blogger!!

They're not exactly boat shoes but I thought these loafers had a touch of nautical about them.....
and finally, a little nod to the sea, my necklace of a Gull type bird.....
So there you have it, I've been trying to take a lot more outside shots just lately, but the foul weather does not permit, I'm afraid, although check out Claire's she went full on nautical on the Cutty Sark!!! And of course head over to the rest of the Five Take crew (see what I did there) and see how they've done the nautical theme!!
