“Poolside Gossip” by Slim Aarons

One of my favorite photographers is Slim Aarons, a society photographer who is best known for capturing the casually chic lifestyles of celebrities and socialites in the fifties and sixties. He began his career as an army photographer, then moved to California where he photographed his fashionable subjects sans stylists or makeup artists. His photographs depict a refined, relaxed lifestyle from a bygone era that I still find inspiring.

This photo of women lounging by a pool in Palm Springs captures the resort-chic vibe that I love. These ladies have definitely perfected the art of lounging! Who’s to say lazy summer days can’t be stylish? Even the simplest activities can be chic. This is the kind of downtime I dream about.
