Today’s fallout shelter visit takes us to lovely Los Angeles of 1951, 10333 Santa Monica Blvd specifically. This is the vivacious Mary Lou Miner sitting atop a domed, cinderblock shelter. Those cat-eyed sunglasses in her hand are great. I would wear this entire outfit today, but likely with different underthings.
The original caption for this image notes that the lass is “sunning herself” but it looks more like she’s balancing pretty precariously to me.
It’s a beautiful summer day today, so why don’t you find yourself a shelter on which to sun yourself.
Strange, but she sure looks good! :)

Now this was just a casual outfit for a dinner date with a friend. The sun decided to come out so of course my new sunnies and sandals were out again, although I slightly regretted the sandals on the walk home. Only slightly… But on a day like today when the weather just could not make up it’s mind, I love my knitted cape. This thing is a favourite of mine, a gorgeous colour, pattern and with a hood and little knitted in sleeves, you will see more of this. It is brilliant for all weather because it is warm but can be open and flowing when the weather is hot. It was a great match for my simple leggings and long grey oversized t shirt (that you can’t even see sorry). Plus it holds great sentimental value (I get very attatched to my clothes) because my grandma bought it for me when I went to see my family out in Australia last year. Thanks Grandma!

Last minute traveler? Yup, that’s me. If you want to call it procrastination, I’ll except that, too. My recent trip to Cairo was finalized on the same day I arrived. This is the best way to go, well not always, but the adventure, the rush and excitement is epic! Finally, I arrived…well to the continent, at least. This was definitely not my final destination, but Africa, aaaahhh! I’ll be back very soon to visit more of your beauty! (West or East Africa, next stop)!
Wonderful shot! :)
Check out The travels of a black girl abroad !
Sailing off the rugged, rich coast of Turkey
Around points of towering trees
Into inlets of lush forest
Around points of jagged cliffs
Into inlets of bobbing canvas decked woods
Across turquoise Mediterranean glass
Into inlets of golden sand
Across crests of snowy white
Toes in bold red
Royal blue gently lapping
The old wood waterline
Nice words and image! :)
Summer toes in Gibraltar!
