Old Photo Album Inspiration

Lately, I have been looking a lot at my grandma's old photo albums for some inspiration. Back in the 40s-60s, she and her family took a lot of trips up north and did some camping and such. I am going to be going camping soon and I don't want to wear the typical shorts and t-shirts. Call me crazy, but I want to camp fashionably! Well as fashionably as tent camping for 4 days will allow.

I am planning on sewing a few things for the trip; primarily some shorts and tops from a vintage pattern. I am also planning on debuting my vintage romper that has been hanging in my closet for about 3 years now. I have never had a chance to wear it to a real beach, so that should be fun!

Anyways, these old family photos of past vacations have been giving me a lot of great ideas on the types of outfits I would like to put together. I especially love this photo of my grandma, taken at I believe Niagara Falls when she was 17. I love that she took the time to record the month and the year on so many of her old photos. I may be bias, but doesn't she look like a model?

Lovely photo, I like her shoes! I haven't been camping in ages, sounds like fun! Where will you be camping?

Gorgeous! Gah, I need to start dressing more fashionably when I go camping. I'd love to, but it's kind of hard. Perhaps I need to find some vintage style jeans. I've been eyeing Freddies of Pinewood, but that's not happening until I get a job.
