This is the snowy, icy, wintery wonderland outside our window. Everything in our yard is buried under a deep, deep blanket of snow and there are 5 foot icicles hanging off our roof. I love winter. I do. But I'm OVER it.
Luckily, according to Punxsatawney Phil, spring is near. And summer is near to spring. So, by the transitive property of geometry, summer is near. Right? So it's totally normal that I've been browsing the internet for bathing suits and beach bags and whatnot.
Wanna join me in my escapist fantasy? Great! Let's talk about swimwear.
I am loving this ruffled bandeau from J.Crew.
And I think it would look super cute paired with this high-waisted bikini bottom from Urban Outfitters.
Most places are selling swim tops and bottoms separately these days...so I'm gonna consider that my cue to get creative.
I am IN LOVE with these sunglasses from Cutler and Gross. Sadly, they will never be mine because they cost a bajillion dollars. But they are basically my vintage style cat-eye wayfarer dream come true.
And yes, I've gone so far as to think about what bag I would like to be toting when swimming hole hopping come June.
One of these French market baskets from Brook Farm General Store would be perfect.
Other things on my wish list: a pretty handwoven towel for sunbathing and impromptu picnics.
And a portable radio.
My countdown to summer officially starts now.
