Well, good news...Summer is here and it's my absolute favorite time of the year! To say that I'm excited is an understatement. Just bring on the pool time, patios, snocones, suntans, and coconut scents. With that said, I'm getting antsy for a little Memorial Day fun. My Mom sent around a very detailed (read: intense) itinerary for our upcoming weekend and it reminded me of how expectant I always was at the "start" of Summer. It always seemed like I had forever to enjoy the fruits of it all before the next school year began...oh to be young again.
Anyway, last night I received the newest J. Crew catalog and while I haven't invested in any pieces just yet, I couldn't help but love the swimsuits that they had this year. True to form, they were overly-styled with accessories galore which makes them slightly less-than-practical for your everyday pool chair. But a girl can dream, right? I have put in enough time as a high school (and college) lifeguard to know that making a one-piece look flattering and stylish is a tall order, however, J. Crew manages to do it. The polka dot, two-piece ruffle suits are to die for and should inspire me to eat only carrot sticks for the next few months (which I can kiss goodbye thanks to my new found penchant for coconut M&Ms).
