I love the photos from my grandma’s scrapbook of her at the beach with all her friends. All the girls have the cutest swimsuits! I tend to like modern interpretations of these old-fashioned styles, so I am glad to see some vintage-inspired suits being sold this season. Here are a few of my favorites:
