La Mer

Mini holiday pics from out short stay at Bournemouth showing my humble 30s attempt with mostly modern gear, except for the ...buckle :) and the hat (apparently known as a semi-calado - see the fretwork weave for ventilation purposes) , which are indeed vintage.
Ah, the frustrating art of improvising! Wish the day when I sported original resort wear would come sooner! A taste of Riviera lifestyle wouldn't hurt either :).


  1. Oh, fantastic!! I love these looks! Honestly, who'd want to ruin their authentic vintage with sand and salt water! I think this is the perfect ensemble! You're so lucky to live with access to "LA MER"! I DO miss living near the ocean some times!

  2. I'd hardly call "near" a 4 hour drive, but yes, it was most enjoyable going there, I hadn't seen the sea for a few years and it'd gotten to the point where I felt I was going to die if I didn't make it happen! Alas, it was too brief a moment!
