Anchors Aweigh

 Monday already ay! Those weekends don't half fly by don't they!
Did you have a lovely weekend? We were at the in-laws and being 4 hours away from where we  live, the weather was warm and dry. ....Think i need to move!

Lemon Denim Jacket: Next
Red Anchor dress worn as top:(actual dress here )Tesco
Stripe Skirt: Primark
Clogs: Lotta from Stockholm
Headband and bag: NewLook

When i saw this anchor print dress in Tesco i really liked it, but it is a tad on the short side as a dress, so where there's a will there's a way i put it under a skirt. Plus with skinny jeans i think it will be nice too or leggings, so for a tenner, it was definitely worth a punt.
Just after we took these photos Neo managed to reach up, grab the camera of the side and drop it on the floor. I screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, which didn't help or stop the camera from crashing down. And then being a mean mummy i shouted at Neo and then sat in a strop! Truth be told i should have put it some where else... But man, that boy is like Stretch Armstrong, he can reach soooo far. Nothing is safe any more!! Thankfully the camera seems ok! We haven't gone to take proper photos again with it yet so keep everything crossed!
So there was my eventful Sunday evening.. how was yours?

  1. The skirt looks gorgeous on you, I've seen it so many times in Primark and deliberated over it, think I will have to get one!!! x

  2. Love the whole outfit, but especially the anchor top/dress :) Hope your camera is ok!

  3. Love your take on the nautical theme! That skirt looks utterly gorgeous and comfortable, love the way it swirls on you . :)

  4. Looking good Rach, love the colours together :)

    I have the same prob with little man - I can't put anything on the mantelpiece without him making a grab for it! Hope your camera is ok.

    Hugs, Estelle xx

  13. I am completely in LOVE with this look. Love the mix of the anchor print with the stipes. Perfectly nautical.

  14. I kind of gasped when I saw these pictures - you look stunning! The long, stripey skirt is so very flattering on you! I can't even tell there's a dress under there :) (I'm always just so impressed when I see someone pull off the "dress-as-a-skirt" thing). And the tie in your hair just adds the cherry on top.
    You look superb, sweetie!

    I'm glad you got some good weather over the weekend. And since you're up for a move, why not hop on over to America? We get way less rain. Just sayin....

    My Sunday was spent in bed sipping soup as I had a terrible cold!

  23. I have been going through your blog; you have this way of putting together patterns and colors I'd never have expected and making them fit perfectly. This though, is amazing. LOVE that anchor print so much and the long maxi really works with it. Great buy!
