the most dreaded part of summer

Bathing suit shopping.

I'm not even going to complain. I am female, therefore I hate how I look when trying on swim suits. Simple.

I have been blessed cursed in the boob department - I have 'em. Ever notice how really cute suits are designed for petite little A cups? I'm not a fan of bulky halter tops, but I'm also not a fan of tucking my girls into a tiny triangle top that's going to slip a nip the moment I jump in the water. I decided to go in between & just get a top that has a little more structure this year. A few in the running...

I love love love that black & white print, but I think my lower regions might look silly in the bottoms. Super cute though.  Both via Topshop

Vacancy bustier via Shopbop. Just so hot.

And the required Victoria's Secret suit...definitely more boob-friendly, but kind of boring.

Even though I prefer a string bottom (less chance of muffin top), I'm thinking of mixing that white top with these bottoms, from Asos.

Then...the dream suit.

Mara Hoffman suit via Shopbop.
I love this so much. I just can't justify spending $240 on it. Tear.

So easy. Perfect for a increasingly busy weekend...

they can do no wrong.

I try to stay away from Anthropologie normally. Not for distaste of the store, by any means. I would literally wear every piece of clothing they carry, & if I could furnish my home (& the homes of my friends & family) with all their decor, I WOULD. So basically, I would live in an Anthropologie store if they would let me. Unfortunately, my funds don't allow me to purchase $40 printed bowls & $200 dresses at the moment. Still, the creativity that radiates from that store just always seems to draw me in if I'm anywhere near. I noticed they have open interviews on Tuesdays for Visual, hello dream job? (at least one of them...)

For Earth Day, Anthropologies nationwide gathered corks for their visual displays. I collect corks too...but they sit in a giant glass on a shelf. Lame. Nothing like this:

This is my favorite. I want to make one.

Sorry for the lack of posts. Life is happening...etc etc.

A couple photos to brighten your Tuesday. Poor Tuesday. No one likes Tuesday.

 You're not hardcore unless you live hardcore!

 I'm going to the eye doctor next week & hopefully picking out a pair of glasses similar to these. Showed family; they think I'm a weirdo.
