This would’ve been a perfect post for yesterday, but I found out a little too late in the day that it was Pink Flamingo Day. And National Pink Day. Thanks to the beauty of the internet, we can find out stuff like that :) Also, if you didn’t here, Monday Donald Featherstone passed away- the creator of the iconic flamingo lawn ornament. He seems like a fun person to have known- can you believe he and his wife wore matching outfits for 35 years?? Whoa.
We are in full blown summer mode- floating around in the pool with a polka dot bikini and flamingo inflatable are essential. Oh, and watermelon. Lots and lots of watermelon.
Summer’s coming quickly and my focus has turned from boots to bathing suits. Like most desert dwellers in the summer, if I’m not inside taking advantage of air conditioning, I’m in the water- so a lot of time is spent in swimsuits. I love how a one-piece not only works for swimming, but looks cute as a top when paired with skirts and shorts- perfect for summertime lounging.
I recently got this retro one piece from Red Dolly Swimwear. As much as I love vintage, I’ve never found a vintage suit that works for me, or that I’ve felt comfortable in. This is one thing that I totally prefer the vintage inspired- and Heather nails it! From high waisted bikinis to one pieces and matching headbands, in polka dots, stripes, and fun fruit prints- all with a more modern, comfortable fit.

These photos were taken right before dying my hair and are the only record of me as a (mostly) bleached blonde. I gotta say, that was as much of a change for me as the pink :) Between the pink hair and the pink bathing suit, you would’ve never guessed that I didn’t go near the color a few years ago. Proof that your tastes can always change if you let them!
Every summer deserves a new swimsuit, don’t you think? I vote for treating yourself to something handmade and supporting an Etsy artist! She’s even got your lil’ babes covered with the cutest line for kiddos too ;)
