beach weekend

Growing up Memorial Day was always spent at the beach. Cold rainy ones finished with sandy exploration missions, sunny ones watching the planes dip and dive overhead while acquiring the most awkward sunburns. As a result one year my knees remained a darker shade of tan than the rest of me. Beach holidays were always my favorite, really any ones that we spent with this special group of people. I'm not quite sure of my plans for this year, but I know where I'd like to be. Hint, hint, It involves wearing something like this. 

I'm not usually drawn to the color pink when it comes to clothes, but this swimsuit is calling my name. It's the perfect "anytime" shade, looks great with or without a tan. I don't know about you, but bright colored suits and I don't mix until about midway through the season. I'd happily pair it with a printed coverup, sunglasses that make a statement, and embellished sandals. I know this Valentino pair is crazy, but I just love them. Maybe one day, a girl can dream.

What are your weekend plans?
