I can’t begin to think of Summer without first looking at a few of my favorite books for inspiration.


Later today, I’ll share with you two of my favorite books that always start my dreams of the perfect Summer that lays ahead.

    Looking forward to what you’re gonna share! It’s getting chilly here in Australia. Winter is coming for us! The exact opposite!

    Beautiful picture,
    I especially like the mix of older and what seems to be modern architecture in the blurry background.

    I just hope to be able to don my swimsuits this year, I haven’t had a proper summer vacation for years !

    This could be a painting or a window display. Fantastic, right down to the towel wrapped around her head.

      ay qué bueno lupe tu comentario, me ha hecho reir a carcajadas, porque has utilizado un tono muy working-class en un blog muy posh,
      grande lupe, great.

    this reminds me of the photo you took recently of a girl asleep in a shaft of sunlight in a cafe – there’s a similar heavenly classical statue type vibe… stunning

    Very funny how people cares more about the background instead of this perfect creature on the close-up:)

    The Mandarin Oriental is amazing. The interior deserves some shots as well!

    Nive shot. The difference is, that this girl knows exactly, what is going on: to be photographed, to present herself in the public, to be published all over the world, etc.

    stunning. the thing i love most is her body. no she is not perfectly skinny with zero fat but she looks healthy and natural. i find myself idealizing this type of body more recently… ex. Jemima Kirke from girls.. I dont know this girl but she radiates confident and coolness to me.

      May 30, 2013 at 8:55 am

      Agreed – she has (for me) the perfect figure. So much so it took me a while to appreciate how nice her swimsuit is!!!

    Juno? Maybe it’s just me, but she resembles Ellen Page a bit…

  52. Woodall

    This shot makes me want her so much!!!

    Great pic!!!

    We are so glad to appear in The Sartorialist in such a beautiful photo!

    This bikini is from TCN, a womenswear fashion brand from Barcelona. It is named Crater bikini bandeau in Caribe colour.
