I’m so far from a beach babe or any kind of water girl!
I like the indoors.
I like to stay unburned, cool and comfortable.
I like my hair to stay feeling nice and clean and big.
I like knowing my phone hasn’t been stolen from my handbag 500 metres away.
I like knowing that my feet won’t be injured from glass, or strange unknown underwater objects.
I like that slimy, moving and alive specimens aren’t sliding past my legs.
I like that feeling when I haven’t swallowed too much salt water because the waves got too big and I thought I was going to die. (good feeling!)
Yep, I don’t like the beach.
Call me ‘cray cray’ or what you wish, but I’m happy to admit it. It’s just not for me.
I do like to look at the beach, I like to walk along the beach, I like to eat fish and chips by the beach… but that’s where the likes end.
So during this Melbourne heat wave, I cooled down elsewhere.
The local swimming pool called – Still not something I’m super comfortable with, but winning over the beach for sure!
A quick dip, no mess, and no creepy mysterious animals or objects.
It was time to bust out the swimmers.
That is the one bit I actually do like about water. Vintage bathing suits yay!
This is what I wore.
You can see some of my vintage bathers collection in a previous post here …
This pair is a vintage 1950′s swimsuit that is one of my favorites.
All cotton, shirred back, gathered bust, cute seashell print, and in a fabulous colour. I love it.
She sells sea shells…
What’s worse than a 42 degree Summer day? A WINDY 42 degree Summer day. Yergh.
I teamed the cozzie (haha) with my 1950′s cateye glasses. They are in desperate need of new lenses as they are super scratched so I don’t wear them often anymore… Does anyone know a good place to take them?
I also wore my jellies. I am living in them this summer. I don’t often wear modern shoes, but I remember them as a kid, so I’m just going to say they’re vintage style :):)
And plus… they are glittery! So who cares :)
See ya later!! I’m off!
Until my next post
