Bathing Beauties

It looks as if summer is upon us! The pool just opened at our apartment, and I thought it a perfect time to share the real life bathing beauties (and other beach frolicking photos) from my vintage photo collection…


And I’ve saved my favorite for last…

What is going on here?! Well, thank goodness one of the gals in this photo wrote what was happening on the back!

In case you can’t make it out, it reads “Isabel + I examine a jelly fish the boys speared (the look like tiny parachutes in the water + can they sting!)” How crazy is that?

Swimsuits may be the one thing that I long for the styles of the most.  Contemporary suits often lack the style (and coverage) of the suits of days gone by.  There were so many wonderful details and prints!
