'Tisn't the Season...

But I've got swimwear on the brain. I know. I'm nuts because it's January blahblahblah, but really it makes sense. It has been getting well into the 70s (Fahrenheit) here for the past few weeks and despite being in the northern hemisphere, I feel quite like it's summer time. I almost like it.

Either way, I decided to share some of my swim wear inspiration, just in case you plan on popping down here or down under (as it's hot in both cases) for a dip or lounging around the beach (as I do.. haha not. I would die.) and because I am going to make a new suit (even though it is FINALLY going to get kind of cold this week tomorrow... of course).

I think I know what I want to do, but feel free to share which are your favorite, you may sway me out of my decision. 

p.s. I have made three swim suits of my own previously (Okay... it's 2 and a half. One was a ill-fitting black one piece I cut and altered. You'll see them at the end of this post, just so ya know.)

p.p.s I sincerely apologize for not giving credit where it is due in terms of sources. I am a jackass for not taking note, but what else can I say?

and finally, hello awkward!

Heddwch allan,



  1. I noticed you've been having fantastic weather lately. No wonder you're thinking about swimwear! Love all the old photos--no way could I pick a favorite. Too bad sunning and smoking cause cancer...

    Your bathing suits look fabulous!

  2. What fantastic photos!! I love the patterns featuring matching capes-- how adorable. Your suits look amazing, great job-- that striped one in particular is too cute!

    So envious of your lovely weather, too!! When it isn't actually summer, I spend a great deal of time daydreaming about what I'm going to wear when it is, so this post was very timely ;)

  3. Thanks both!

    Yep, the one benefit of the south I suppose is pleasantly warm winters. Though summers really are killer due to the warmth.

  4. I love the robes with the hoods on. I have a book on 1920s Britain and they have some great photos of these beautiful bathing ladies in towelling robes with tassells. I wish they still made those!
