Sea of Love.

 We all need a trip to the sea. I go pretty often as that is where my Sailor boyfriend lives. ( He's not actually a Sailor). 

But this time it was different, as we had the keys to our very own Cottage by the Sea. We lived next to the fire, next to the sea and best of all, next to each other.

As it turned out, we did far more outdoor element braving activities than I had planned for. I had packed for posing next to the sea, not for hiking alongside it. Although I never dress like it, I love spending time outdoors in physical activities. I refused to give in to 'practical' and my Bettie Page dress & I conquered the 60mph Sheringham winds. My ass froze, my Keds gave me mega blisters but my faux bangs stayed in and I came out the otherside without resorting to the waterproof trousers and was rewarded Fish and Chips at the end of it all. 

Our Roles soon became established...
Man: Fire Starter & Photographer
Woman: Head Chef. Alas, no photo evidence!

Rock Climbing and Road Cycling.

  1. I wish I dressed that fabulously when I go away - I'm afraid I'm a wellies and waterproof jacket type when the elements are against me. Red lippy always a concession though!

  2. Just found your blog! You are so adorable! And I am jealous of your fabulous Miss L Fire shoes! Definitely following :)

  3. Oh how I loved these pictures. You looked fabulous! Good for you for not sacrificing fashion for comfort, but I feel bad that your feet hurt and you froze!! :) When I get my roots done the next time I am going to bring my computer and show her your pics and ask her to style my hair like yours. If it turns out well I'll send you a pic!!

  4. You both look fab and like you had a great time! Love your outfit choices, and of course your hair :)


  5. Sounds like an amazing weekend. You look stunning in all these photos!
