get in the water

here’s some visual inspiration to celebrate the fact that we’re only about a month away from summer holidays. and for everyone reading this who are north of the equator… muwahahaaaaaaaaaaa.

soon

it’s going to be spring soon! though our tricksy south african weather has been making everyone assume it’s spring already (this has probably been the mildest and most glorious winter in recent memory.) i bet we’re in for one more crazy cold front before the proper hot weather hits us though – remember when it snowed in august?

swim

i haven’t had a swim in so, so long. i can almost feel the water just at the thought of it.

the cat’s pajamas

jessica of the cat’s pajamas found these vintage photos in a basket in an antique store

My favorite thing to collect is probably old photographs just because I love making up stories about all of them and getting a glimpse into the past. Plus, I think they’re the best source of inspiration when in comes to outfits. These photos in particular are especially special because they’re all from the same couple of people. It looks like it was a family and their friends and other family members and the photos span throughout 1936-1938.
