This lovely lady is showing us how to go from the boardwalk to the beach in what was called “beach pajamas.”

According to this book, “Worn since the war by both sexes as casual, indoor clothing, pajamas appeared at the beaches and casinos in 1929 and received their popular name in the summer of 1931. Ridiculed, sung about, and prohibited by the church, pajamas were finally accepted when the courtiers thought to feminize them and erase any hint of ambiguity.”

This photo screams badass.

With the weather in Chicago still cold and rainy, I’m yearning for Spring to come back — better yet for Summer to be here!

To continue with my favorite photos from “Elegance: The Seeberger Brothers and the Birth of Fashion Photography,” here are some fun beach photos.

This first photo is by far my favorite from the book. This woman has such grace and style. I don’t know where she’s going but watch out world here she comes!
