Peace, Love & the Beatles

Today I stumbled upon this article on NPR. A couple of thoughts: 1) I must have this book! 2) isn't it funny how one little thing can remind you of how much you enjoy something? Whether it be a favorite band, a time period, a certain fashion style .... or all of the above.

So in light of my renewed love for all things Beatles and sixties here are some of my favorites from that epoch and modern finds inspired by that time


1. Cover of the new Beatles book "The Lost Beatles Photographs: the Bob Bonis Archive".
2. Soft prints perfect for a flower-power picnic, available at Modcloth
3. The iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarers, worn by everyone from Bob Dylan to Audrey Hepburn and James Dean to Mr. President.
4. Mr. President, JFK with his daughter Caroline. Adorable, no?
5. Flowy neutral tops ideal for even the most hippie outdoor concerts.
6. The beautiful, and talented, Melanie in the cover of her album... One of my favorite songs ever is this one by her. 

"I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive
I been all around the world
Some people say, I done all right for a girl..."

  7. so many sweet things in this post! i love the beatles. i used to work at a lawfirm, and one of our clients was one of the official photographers for the beatles. he gave the firm one of his giant photo books from his time with them, and i used to flip through it whenever i was having a tough work day {which was often - working at a lawfirm is awful!}.

  8. I love the timelessness of the Wayfarers and that Beatles photograph!
    Hope you have a good, energy-filled week as well dear!
