When I finally opened my eyes this morning (that jog yesterday sort of kicked my butt, I do believe...followed by Anthony Bourdain at 10, which, let's face it, is now 'late' for me by the time it's all said and done) my gaze stopped at: my yellow polka dot bikini!
I never thought I'd own one. Better yet, I know I'll never look like the girl in the picture above. Ha!
Anyway, I went a little swimsuit crazy at the beginning of summer. I wanted/needed a new one and also have a trip to Florida booked for August. I ordered a few suits online, ripped open the packages, tried them on, thought about them, strategized (wanted to make sure the most expensive one was really thought over) and ended up returning 2 out of the 3 I bought (expensive one included, yippee! ha ha) So then I had left one cute two piece (boy shorts) from the Gap. I decided I wanted an additional style (preferably a tankini) for any days I might be feeling less than bikini-ish (which are most, by the way). I found myself downtown Westport one afternoon and stumbled into...SALES! J Crew had some serious sales. Each piece of my yellow polka dot number was less than $20! That's a serious steal, if you ask me. And what bathing suits SHOULD cost, considering there's not much to them. I also went next door to the Gap and found a simple black tankini that landed right around the same place, price wise. I'm so happy I started early and did a little shopping around the matter. I found the best deals and some cute style variations! So now I'm 3 suits deep (plus an old one that isn't totally trash worthy yet)!!
Florida here I come! It also makes me feel good to know that I've been working out and I think it will make my few days in a bathing suit that much more...relaxing!
Off to the office, yellow polka dots dancing in my head!
