I truly should be packing for the beach but in normal Karmen fashion, I’m on the computer instead. I have ideas about what I want to pack and that’s half the battle right? I started to think about how I completely love the glamorous, retro beach style so I’m doing a quick round up of some of my favorite retro beach looks.
Kicking this roundup off with Grace Kelly because … well seriously… look at her. Flawless, beautiful, timeliness. She is an absolute knockout in a simple white bikini and red lipstick.
The accessories put this look over the top for me – sunglasses, handkerchief and that amazing red lipstick (note to self: pack red lipstick)
Claire McCardell is completely glamorous but somehow effortless in this playsuit worn with a beret and statement earrings.
Love this simple cotton dress, belted at the waist with the big straw hat.
I don’t really know whats happening in this picture but the swim caps are kinda glam.
