Would you believe that although it's nearly August, I've not worn a bathing suit once this summer? Between a heavy workload, the chilly San Francisco weather, and a Huz whose attitude towards sunshine is positively vampiric, my shabby old bikinis languish at the back of my drawer. How I would relish an excuse to pull them out--or better yet, buy a chic new one!
With no beach-worthy days on my horizon, some swimsuit-inspired Outfit to Room action will have to do. I've yet to brave the 60's vibe of a retro one piece, especially one with a v-cutout this deep; it's a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen! But a mid-century bedroom suits me just fine.
If I were to purchase a new suit, I'd definitely explore this year's fun floral options. There's something about this sensibility that reminds me of laid-back days at an ocean-front cottage, lounging about munching on fresh fruit and reading epic novels from sunup to sundown.
And while it's not my personality at all, I do wonder what it's like to be that girl: the one who hangs out poolside in Vegas, wearing towering heels with a psychedelic halter maillot. I'll have to convince the Huz to take me to the Bellagio for a weekend. All in the interest of 'research', of course!
Tell me: What's your bathing suit style?
