Fairfield County Summer of 1948-49

Holy smokes.
I just came across the silliest post on A Continuous Lean.
Hailing from the great County of Fairfield, I am particularly tickled by these photos from LIFE magazine.
Oh gosh, it's true isn't it? Young co-eds in the 40's just oozed glamour and glitz. 
Was I supposed to have been born 30 years earlier?

I was just invited to head out on my friend's boat this weekend. We'll be cruising the SAME water as the folks in the photos.
Ah, The Sound.
Something tells me, my day out on the water is going to play out a bit differently though. I think our trip will involve a few more beer cans-and sadly- a woman in a long black gown will most likely not be making an appearance.

Happy Weekend Friends!

  1. Hope you had a lovely weekend Emily! I lived for a summer with my aunt in Rowayton, Connecticut and used to love walking the few blocks down to the Sound to have lunch on the deck of the local market. It is absolute perfection! xoxo katie
    P.S. Can't wait to see you in SF!!!
