Slim Aarons

"attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places"















I have become a huge fan of Slim Aarons' photography, especially his poolside images.  I must confess, in my head, I am in a Slim Aarons photograph all of the time.  In his own words, he photographed "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places," which is so my cup of tea.  (Call me shallow, but I did the whole date a tortured writer and read Dostoyevsky thing in college and, let me tell you, it is incredibly exhausting).  I think I love these images because they remind me of my grandmother.  She could have fit right in to any one of these pictures. 

Have a lovely weekend y'all! I hope you're able to get in some pool time, and if you do, close your eyes and imagine you're one of these fabulous people.

  1. Love this post....that pool house that belonged to CZ Guest is out of this world gorgeous and this whole post reflects such an elegant and beautiful era...a time gone by that will be no more. I knew I was born in the wrong decade- I missed out on all this! They just don't make glamour the way they used to!
    PS Don't feel shallow...I too like things to always be fun, pretty, beautiful and glamorous..nothing wrong with it! We have to live life anyway why not choose for it to be a beauitful and glamorous one!!
