Prepping for Summer (& Swimsuit Season)

I have to keep reminding myself that it's not officially summer yet, but we have been getting such a good taste of what's (hopefully!) to come weather-wise. I've been going on weekly bike rides and walks around the Seawall (evidence here, here, and here) and basically trying to get in as much sun as possible.

Since I plan on spending lots of time at the beach soon, I've been in major prep mode. First up: a new swimsuit thanks to Hapari. I actually have another swimsuit from them but this year I wanted to go for something with a bit of a retro vibe. I ended up choosing a black bikini top paired with boy shorts to get the look I was going for and I could not be more pleased.


This bikini is extremely comfortable and served me well on my visit to the Scandinave Spa last month (hence the picture of me pretending not to be freezing under the Nordic Shower). It will definitely be in heavy rotation soon enough!

And with swimwear out of the way, I've also been gathering items for my beach bag. You can't go wrong with some sun care, beachy hair, and a yummy fragrance. Can you tell I'm a little overeager for beach time?

  6. ah. I can't wait to wear any of my swim suits! I don't own many since I don't actually go to the beach or tropical locations much but, it's always fun to bust out any of my swim wear for the day I'm there. =D

  11. Your bathing suit is very cute! A cold water shower sounds very unpleasant. Here's hoping beach weather comes soon.
