Slim Aarons Poolside

This is the time of year I don't like.  January and February... when Christmas has come and gone and all that's left is dreary weather.  I start to crave a beach vacation.  Lucky for me, my boyfriend is Australian and it just so happens to be summer there!  In 11 weeks (not that I'm counting or anything) we are headed to Sydney to visit his family and enjoy the sunshine.  In the meantime, I need some sunny images to keep me from sinking in to the winter doldrums... and  Poolside with Slim Aarons is just what the doctor ordered:



Slim Aarons is regarded as one of the most influential magazine photographers of his time (1916-2006).   Poolside highlights beautiful, glittering people living the glamorous life, poolside of course. It's one coffee table book still on my wishlist. How could you not be happy looking at these images? 


It's time I emerge from my all-black winter uniform and start stocking up on colorful pieces for the Australian getaway... don't you think?


1.) Magid Straw Floppy Hat $30/2.)  Mara Hoffman Pow Wow Bikini $195/3.) Illesteva Leonard Round Frame Acetate Sunglasses $165/ 4.) Assad Mounser Orange Devil's Tower Cuff $293/ 5.) Charlotte Olympia crepe de chine wedge sandals $525/

  6. This is the time of year when I want to post beach pictures every day...then people probably wouldn't read my blog but I would be perfectly content :) Slim Aarons makes me want to live in a bathing suit, poolside, sipping something frozen and fruity!
