i'm on a mission

Despite the fact that I live in perhaps the hottest climate of all Earth [thanks, phoenix] I am NOT a fan of water-related activities. This is due mostly to the required attire for the occassion-- the dreaded swim suit. Yes folks, I have issues with the swim suit. If you have never been around me in such circumstances that require said attire, I will tell you that I try desperately to correct this problem with a big flowy tank/shirt and soffee shorts. While highly unnattractive, I have found this method to be very effective in covering as much as myself as possible while not wearing too much to actually drown myself (did I mention I'm also a terrible swimmer?) However, it's still uncomfortable!

But for this summer, I have a plan. I am now on a mission to find the perfect swim suit, and my style of choice is that reminiscent of the 40's and 50's. Swim suits from that era were not only adorable, but classy and flattering and covered a whole bunch of skin without making their wearer look like a granny. Lucky for me, many designers are taking inspiration from that time, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can find a winner!

Here are some of my favorites that I have found...

This next one is one of my favorites!..

Uh! LOVE this one, too!...

And this.....

And of course, Zooey Deschanel would be so cute in one of these...I love her, and her suit...

That's all for now!
