Whether you hate Valentines day or just love the day I think we can all agree that looking at pictures of vintage couples in love is a fun way to pass the time (or maybe we can’t agree but for the sake of this post lets run with my thought lol).

Valentines day aside I really adore just looking at the beautiful fashion, hairstyles, locations of the pictures etc. so that is why I like to share these images with you. So with that, lets check out love 1940’s and 1950s style.

First up a cute photo to get us into Feb 14th mode (not a couple photo I know) with the actress Lynn Merrick

The Couples

The below picture of 2 couples from the 1940s is really great. I love how wholesome the ladies look and how the men are giving the camera a “I’m a bit of a bad boy” stare. The bathing suit on the woman on the right is also really beautiful.

While looking thru all the pictures on Flickr I started to see a trend of pictures being taken on the beach. Lots and lots of couples on beaches, I guess because it is a romantic place to be 🙂

So here is another one! Aren’t they just adorable! Another cute bathing suit as well. Look at the cutout on the bottoms…fantastic!

Such a distinguished and nicely dressed couple, his socks are amazing! I just love how they clearly seem to be enjoying their conversation together.

You cannot have a group of couples without posting an image of teenagers in love. I love how he is totally focused on her and she is focused on the camera 🙂

I was drawn to this picture because I love how they don’t care there is a camera and just continue to look at each other. Ahhh…

Another young couple in love. They remind me of a Gap or J.Crew ad here.

Now to end this mini series of couples, I’m sharing this awesome beach picture. The couple looks like they are having so much but the ladies in the background of the picture just made me giggle so much. Love it!

For my valentine’s day my husband and I were hoping to get away for a long weekend away to somewhere warm (still really cold in Toronto) but instead we are going to do what we love to do together…. Beer and wings at a great BBQ joint. Talk about romance 😉

Whether you celebrate the day or don’t celebrate the day I want to wish everyone a Happy February 14th!

  1. This wonderful post warms my vintage real world everyday folks loving heart to no end – and also makes me think of my own grandparents, especially my maternal ones, when they were courting back in the early 1950s.

    Big hugs & tons of happy Valentine’s Day wishes,
