Just a bit of Summer Prepdom Nostalgia

Preppy SummerMore nostalgia from the archives of LIFE (remember Barfoot Bardot)..., and with summer now in full swing I thought a bit of prepdom might be fun (and I'm not even the preppy type)..., "Prepdom at its coolest" at the Tucker Mill Inn pool in the Hamptons in 1965..., "Preppy style traces its roots to 1960s Eastern U.S. colleges -and the nearby holiday havens where well-to-do families relaxed with nary a hair out of place."

  1. As someone who is also living at the beach for 3,months every year, I love your blog. Lots of inspiration..

  2. Great pic Maya.. I adore any type of vintage photos, but especially these LIFE images. Of course we didn't really have the whole 'preppy' era in Australia, so even the more fascinating for me. Julie
