The beginning of summer always holds the promise of exotic adventures tinged with a balmy haze and while planning for an overseas trip today I was reminded of the work of Slim Aarons. Poolside, a collection of some of his work documenting the privileged set from the 1950s – 1980s has been on my Christmas list for a while now. It seems much more appropriate for a southern-hemisphere Christmas than the ones I was used to in Europe.
P.S. If you’re looking for something to perfect your own 60s poolside cocktail look, this dress is my favourite :-)
