I just recently landed back from a nice holiday in Catalonia, enjoying beautiful sites, great beaches and last but not least, the fantastic High Rockabilly Weekender. Although the weather this year was not as great as it normally is, we really had good time with our friends.
The next few posts will give an overview of the outfits I wore during the holiday, starting with our last day, at the beach.
I was wearing a pretty unusual cotton bathing suit, looking like a two piecer from the front, but actually a one piecer on the back. I also had red shorts, red ballerinas and a red beach bag. Because we were going to swim I limited my jewelry to my gold loop earrings. And my hair got messy from swimming… But it was so nice to have a swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean.
I bought this lovely swimming suit from a vintage shop called ”Night and Day” in Chicago (on Belmont Avenue) in September 2012. I heard that the shop would be closed now, and I do hope it’s only a rumour. It’s so sad to see so many good vintage shops closing down one after the other.
I bought the shorts from the High Rockabilly Flea Market, just a day before the pictures were taken. I do have other red shorts but I have been putting on so much extra weight that I had to buy bigger ones. The beach bag is a purchase from the Hemsby Rock ’n’ Roll weekender, over ten years ago.
