beach – sunshine = books + hiking

 

The beach has its own beauty in the rain with muted colours in the softened light,

and nature has a reprieve from the scortching summer sunrays,

the rain drops glistening and nurturing the earth.

white summer

 

Romantic and playful as flying a kite on the beach

~ white dresses with lace flounces to the most delicate floral and fringing.

A charming beach house in South Africa

 

My beach sojourns have me beach house dreaming.

This beautiful beach house is located at Yzerfontein, a fishing village north of Cape Town.

Isn’t this screen stunning ~ its ornate carvings look like lace.

Bathing Belle

 

Swim, swim, swim

I love Spring Hills Baths!

Today I began my exercise regime and swam some lengths

at the historical Municipal Baths, Spring Hill which opened in 1886.

Googles and kickboard, I was swimcap free and not nearly as stylish as these babes.

The Karen Neilsen Collection fashion shoot at the Spring Hill Baths captures the atmosphere.

Charismatic coloured doors in vivid yellow, red and green

set the scene for the old world glamor style of the KNCollection shoot.

The beauty and authenticity of these heritage retro baths was the perfect setting.

Karen Neilsen Collection is more then just a swimwear label

–we’re a community of fashion lovers seeking the latest and greatest in unique 50’s inspired style.

KNC girls have access to the latest in swimwear trends, exclusive invites to fashion parades and fabulous fashion events – and take on the world in oh la la style.

Fashion designer Karen Neilsen was inspired to create these treasures

when she discovered old family holiday snaps from‘ The Entrance’

a trendy beach hotspot back in the 50’s. The Karen Neilsen Collection was developed in 2007.

Take a trip down summer sunshine times with sweetheart skirted bottoms,

pompoms, vintage florals, high waistlines to Itsy Bisty bikinis

and beautiful bows radiate the ultimate feminine feel.
