Anchors Away!


Hi dolls! I hope your week has been going well...it's been a cold and bitter one here. Side walks covered in snow and ice, not fun! But, most has gone now, but I'm sure it will return in no time! I took these photos ages ago, I had forgotten about them, but found them the other day & decided to share :) I have a thing for any piece of clothing that has a sailor theme & had to have these BIBA shorts when I spotted them - I know, it's not a dress...the shock, haha! But, they are quite comfy and I can wear them with many different tops, so I'm happy! These were taken by the Free French Memorial while I was visiting friends. It's in memory of the Free French Naval Forces who sailed from here in 1940-1945 & gave their lives in the battle of the Atlantic for the liberation of France & the success of the allied cause. You can see the anchor from quite far away too. Stunning views...I also think it's a place where teenagers come to ummm...make out, haha! As I walked past a few cars that looked suspicious ; ) Well..I hope you all have a wonderful day & rest of the week!! Talk soon dolls.

  12. Oh, you said "Anchors Away" which is very close to my heart because I am a Sailor! And I love the scenery and the anchor of course!And your outfit is so adorable! I need to try the tights with shorts look again this season. I haven't had the inspiration yet too, but you've helped spark my interestin trying again. And you're "NOTE" below is funny! I mean, I sympathize with people who want more followers, but after a while it gets annoying. -Jess L

  27. Hi Kizzy,

    You look so cute in your shorts! You remind me of the pin-up girls of the l940's. I love that huge anchor! I'm also a fan of anything nautical.

    Stay warm, dear! I think we may finally be getting a dose of cold weather next week ( 50 degrees F during the day and 28 degrees F at night) Brrr, I may have to get out my winter duvet and finally turn on the heat! Ha

  38. What a nice view! I can imagine why people go there to make out... ;) I would have waited until it was dark outside, so we could see all the lights from the town though... :) I have a pair of similar shorts - wide legs and buttons going up the sides. Had forgotten about them though, so thanx for the reminder! Love that outfit on you...as always... :) xxxxxxx

  58. Kizzy, you look SO CUTE!!! Do you know I had a pair of pants like the shorts you're wearing. I wore them OUT! Everyone loved the buttons on them. I swear they were just like yours. I love sailor themed clothing too and the backdrop for your photoshoot fit perfectly. Gavin is an excellent photographer. You two should go into business! You're fabulous with styling and he can take a mad pic.

  60. You look preppy without looking preppy. I think charming is the correct word here. I'm in love with your coat also. There couldn't have been a more perfect backdrop for your 'sailor' inspired outfit than this-- gorgeous place. I can see why teenagers come to do you know what here :) You look beautiful!
