'60's surf culture.

{photo found via aviatornation}.

with the holidays finally here,
and wish lists and hints
flying around like paper airplanes,

along with a recent trip
to my childhood beach in malibu,
love this photo taken in L.A.
{found via 2or3things}

i've been really inspired to encourage the
1950's-1960's surf culture vibe that
my family is currently infactuated with by purchasing
retro-inspired and vintage gifts.

while, there are some really, really cool 'new' lines
like ando and friends, yellow rat and patagonia,
who i will be supporting,

love these retro hodad pants from
{who wouldn't?}

this really cool tee,

and super cute girl's tee.
{both from ando}.

yellow rat.

i also love the idea of buying vintage
and supporting indie sellers.

i peeked around on etsy
and found some very cool items that fit in perfectly
with the vintage vibe i'm seeking.

i love these shirts.

this cool 1966 beach boys album
recycled into a journal notebook.

gorgeous vintage wayfarers.

another really, cool shirt.

a kodak instamatic movie camera
to shoot surf flicks.

and yet another totally sweet
vintage '60's vibe surfer's jacket.

while today's post isn't about us girls,
i couldn't resist sharing
this perfect, vintage beach bag.
