Going swimming.

I'm packing a picnic and spending the day at the lido. The sun is out in London and it's actually warm. This is an opportunity not to be missed. (I will take pen and paper with me and try to do some work. Honestly.)

I love this picture from The Sartorialist's vintage photo competition, of someone's grandmother on her honeymoon in 1956. How brilliant is that bathing suit?

Have a great weekend!

  1. Enjoy! I'm about to get the paddling pool out in the garden for the kiddos - not quite the same as a lido, but they love it, and I can dip my toes!
