Slim Aarons Photographs Capture My Dream Life

Penthouse Pool

I LOVE photographer Slim Aarons work. LOVE. Not sure if I made that clear but in case you didn’t get that, it’s love. The pools, the beaches, the houses, the 1960’s and 1970’s and 1980’s fabulousity …uh, it’s my dream life.

I’m particularly fond of {feeling fabulous} entertaining at home and especially throwing extravagant poolside parties. A pastime that has been put on hold until we find a more suitable home in which to engage such affairs.

Until then, I will daydream myself right into these photographs {and possibly buy a few for the future home}.

    yes, as soon as we get a pool, you are first on the list. Heels are a must though …heels and bikinis and cover-ups and big sunglasses and hats. so fab. I’m looking forward to it 🙂

    By having the pics your taking the right step in manifesting your destiny. So hold on to them. For my words of encouragement I “expect” an invitation to your first poolside gathering!!

    These shots are amazing! Besides the fact these are “vintage” pictures, it’s remarkable how they don’t seem dated (perhaps only by what people are wearing).
