vintage love.

Happy Thursday, friends! My post today is dedicated to my love of all things "vintage", including old time travel posters. Since we're Miami bound for the weekend, I picked a few of my favorites featuring this sunny city! Don't you just love the bright and bold colors? I think I'm in love...

In digging for some great old posters, I noticed a common theme--killer one-pieces. I'm a recent convert to the one-piece, after a nearly two decade year hiatus. With my history of skin cancer {specifically in my tummy region}, there is no use in tempting fate and inviting new spots to appear. I may wear a two-piece from time to time, but I'm loving the look of a classic one-piece like the ones below:

{find them here: red - yellow - green - blue - polka dots}

Though I spent one night back in college on South Beach, I haven't been back since. {cv} has never been--and I'm so excited for a little r+r :) I'm curious what destinations are on your list these days. Have you ever fallen in love with old vintage posters like me?! I sure hope I'm not alone! Have a phenomenal Thursday and I will "see" you all back here tomorrow with another round of Friday's Fancies...I cannot wait to see your date night looks :)


P.S. Any + all advice for Miami is welcome!
