Summer Breezes, 1955

My longing for warm weather and summer breezes continues unabated. It doesn't help when I see a photo like this one from 1955. I want to be her, sipping chianti and savoring local fare on the beach in Apulia, Italy. She wears pink cotton paisley separates by Polly Hornburg. Polly Hornburg was a native Bermudian who designed play clothes and swimwear for her 6 Calypso stores in Bermuda and Jamaica, as well as for stores all over the US. The set sold for $48 in 1955 (about $391 in today's dollar.)

May your weekend be a warm one.
