  9. I just stumbled across your website and love it! Am following now. All these bathing suits are so adorable. I've been thinking about getting one for a while, and I absolutely must. Women were so much more fashionable back then. Sigh.

  16. Thank you so much for your comment. I was nearly snorting with laughter. We truly were born in the wrong decade if the 1940's had boys like that bike rider to offer! growl! lol.

  19. I couldn't agree more with you when it comes to why wearing vintage swimwear is the way to go! It's awesome to lay out in the sparkling sun and know that there's next to no chance anyone else is going to saunter by wearing the same outfit ;)

    Absolutely adore your entire roundup of stunningly pretty summer items!

    Big hugs & oodles of sunny, happy Wednesday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
