Summer of 69

I've been looking through some of my old magazines lately, mainly summer issues, to get some style inspiration. These photos are from the June 1969 issue of Ladies' Home Journal. 

Here is Susan Saint James wearing a gorgeous bathing suit that is complimented by a body chain. I've been noticing body chains are becoming trendy again, see how fashion is cyclical. 

This is Susan Saint James again. This dress would be lovely for spring.

This is the last photo I have of Susan Saint James. I love her hat and this photo is great scarf inspiration. When it's too hot to wear a scarf around your neck you can wear it around your hat!

Isn't this swim dress cute. I've been hunting for a new bikini or one piece for this summer. 

This is a Kotex ad and it's something completely different than what Kotex ads are like today. Todays ads are all about the active tampon fan, this is glamour!

There were some beautiful hairstyles 

 and some unfortunate ones

I hope you all enjoyed these photos from the June 1969 issue of Ladies' Home Journal
