Old Hollywood Summer Style Muses

It’s officially summer here, and no one loves that more than me.  The sky is permanently a bright, electric blue. The smell of jasmine is everywhere. The days are long, and the nights are…magical. Even plain ol’ Tuesday nights are magical. Soon I’ll be spending most days by the sea. Don’t hate – comes with the territory…;-)

I love that we have no choice but to wear less stuff because it’s a million degrees out. But does wearing less stuff automatically mean that one need look like a skank? It shouldn’t. I mean, look how these old-school Hollywood actresses pulled off style, grace – and functionality, come summer…

I love it. Can’t get enough. Free People‘s got tons of stuff this season that screams out boho-60’s summer. With a huge dose of style. And grace, too. See?

I hope it’s summer where you are. If it’s not summer yet, then patience…it’s coming.

Until soon,
