Pinspiration: 1940s Beachwear

I'm not headed anywhere beachy this summer but there's nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of beach inspiration inland! I love 40s beach wear because it's fun and youthful and easy.

I love this playsuit set! It's so cute without being too kitch.

I love the idea of a bra top with matching skirt for those super hot days.

Check out this great boating ensemble! Puff sleeved crop top and skirt. I bet she has some bloomers under there too! And love the shades. :D

I love the two tone dress on the left! It would be swell as a wrap dress!

Check out these darling skirts! The colors and prints are just divine! Please send me one of each.

And no beach outfit is complete without great shoes. I love all of the wedges down the left. Perfect for walking the beach or board walk.


  1. Fabulous warm weather fashions! So true, just because one doesn't have a beach nearby doesn't mean that can't dress as if they did. Summer is too hot not to be comfortable and beachwear is a great way to make that a bit more possible.

    Happy start of summer!

  2. I'll take them all, thank you very much.

  3. I love vintage playsuits so much fun! This is something I would like to try and make as buying one is very expensive:) It's also not too easy finding just the right print in today's styles.

  4. What fun inspiration! I just made myself a playsuit, so I'm glad that the first picture validates my choice of a giant print.
