I Love Summer...But Not Swimsuits

A swimsuit looks lovely on Grace, doesn't it? But of course, didn't everything?

Today I went shopping for swimsuits. UGH! I hate shopping for swimsuits. But, we're going to the beach in a few weeks and I haven't gotten a completely new swimsuit in a few years, so I thought it was about time. I have two swimskirt bottoms that I've bought new tops to match, but I wanted a completely new swimsuit. Can there be anything worse than trying on swimsuits, under those horrible dressing room lights? I think I'd rather be pinched. Nothing like a little (or alot!) of cellulite to re-motivate my not so steady healthy diet. After much groaning, and sucking in of stomach, I finally found one I was happy with. Its a cute navy swimskirt bottom, and I bought two separate tops to match, in pretty navy, green and white patterns. I think never again will my tummy see the sunlight, not to mention my hips.

Aren't these girls cute? I love the swimsuits of the 40's and 50's. Isn't that second one from the left just adorable?

I love summer, the beach, hanging out on my dock at the lake, spending early mornings in the garden, fresh veggies and tomato sandwiches for dinner. Yes, I heart summer. Just not swimsuits. Are you ready?

I agree completely. Love summer. Hate swimsuits. I can't think of much of less rather do than shop for a swimsuit. So good for you!!!

I love, love, love, these '40s/'50s swimsuits. I could almost look good in one of those!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm going to enjoy scanning through yours for a little while here. You look like a kindred spirit : )!!
