Now that summer's officially arrived, I've got swimming on my mind nonstop. While I may be land-locked here in Austin and rarely make it to an actual beach, I still manage to get a lot of swimming in during the summer months. If you've ever been in Texas during this time, you know this is an essential part of surviving the brutally unforgiving heat! Thankfully we have easy access to many swimming holes and rivers in the area that are currently flowing abundantly with all the rain we've had this year.
Simply put, I love summer fashion, and swimsuits happen to be my favorite. My own personal style tends to be pretty laid back; generally, you'll find me on the greenbelt or at the springs in a 1970's bikini, cut-offs, an over-sized hat, my sunnies and loads of sunscreen slathered on, of course - gotta practice good sun safety! That said, I do find inspiration in other styles and decades as well.
Below are a few vintage photos I'm currently drawing summer beach inspiration from.
