Summer Lovin'


Havin' a blast thinking about the summer, the beach and bathing suits. Especially vintage inspired suits, high waisted bottoms, cute little tops, or one pieces with little shorts at the bottom. In classic colors, polka dots, or cute prints. How wonderful does that sound? Someone bring me to Hawaii, I need the warmth! While I'm waiting here are some of my favorite pictures of vintage suits.

Hanna said...

I've been in love with the dice one from Anthropologie for weeks now. Unfortunately, a college student in the middle of winter in the Midwest doesn't really need such things.

Love all the vintage photos. The swimsuits you've picked out are fantastic as well. Australian brands Lover and Camilla & Marc have done some excellent vintage inspired swimsuits as well. You should def check them out. xx

It's so lovely this vintage inspired swimsuits! I wish find some like this here in Brazil, but you know... my country is known as our small swimsuits (that I do not complain, we have a lot of sizes - no, we don't live only whit the smallest sizes- and shapes)
I'm thinking in send some shop make one vintage for me..

Lovely , for sure ! I'd really wore the last one,the black one :)

Velire said...

your post just made me go gaga over the thought of summer. It's still winter over here where I live so summer seems just so far away. Booo.

thanks for sharing such great pieces for summer. I think I want a vintage inspired piece now. :)

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I lovelovelove the first one. It's definitely on my wish list!

Christen said...

I absolutely love these suits... in theory. But I swear, every vintage-y swimsuit I've ever tried on looks horrendous on me. So, unfortunately, I'll be sticking to my bandeau and low-waisted bikini bottom this summer :(

Tia in the Sky said...

I've always wanted a polkadot full piece, maybe with a few ruffles ♥

daisychain said...

Yay! That is Pattie Boyd in the first two pics! She is my ultimate style icon!! :)

Love these suits!

daisymay said...

Love the domino swim suit, so cute!

Samantha said...

I just found your site and the first thing I see is George Harrison and Pattie Body rocking some vintage swimming gear (though not vintage to them at the time). So I think I love you and your blog for it! :)

I've always wanted vintage swim suits but I've felt weird at the idea of actually swimming in them. I'd rather just have them as decorative beach wear :P

Lisa said...

i'm dreaming of summer too.. so desperately

Liz said...

So classy! I love the Anthropologie ones :)
