Anchors Aweigh

Technically, I shouldn’t like  classic images of pin up girls.  Their skirts are always “accidentally” getting caught on something to reveal sexy underthings for a some dude’s amusement.  But damn, those chicks have got some serious style. Especially these sailor ladies from the 40s and 50s.

I guess a lot of seamen really went for pin-ups of this”nautical look”, but the only women serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII were WAVES.

With the warm weather (slowly) approaching, I’ll ignore First Mate Bombshell’s mistake of sitting too close to the ship’s wheel and  follow her headwear cues instead.
