Life’s a beach

From Memorial Day (which is quickly approaching) to Labor Day, I try to jam-pack everything warm-weather related into a few very short weeks. I remember when I was in high school and thought that summer lasted forever. I even bought a tee-shirt that said “Forever Summer.” But reality bites, it ends. Unfortunately, like summer and its romances, bathing suits usually don’t last more than one season. I’ve tried to reuse my $350 Eres suit that I purchased in Italy last summer, but even expensive elastic stretches out. Here’s a little preview to kick-off the summer vacation season Part 1. (Beach Boys Endless Summer playing in the background.) Coming soon.. a chance  to bear ass! Or not. Wear bandeau! Or not. A chance to wear.. or be like old King Tut (how’d he get so funky)! I think that Tut Tank by Mara Hoffman is calling my name. I might be the only one on the beach crazy enough to wear it. Don’t ya think??  Summer is short, so seize the moment in these stunners. Check out the collage below for a little swimwear inspiration and be prepared to turn heads during the upcoming holiday weekends.

So as you lounge beach-side this summer, do share which suit suits you best. A 50′s floral number? A bandeau? Did you do your 300 sit-ups today? I did and will be wearing that teeny weeny itsy witsy white scalloped bikini? (Insert sarcasm here) A simple yellow maillot? You bet.

Don’t forget to clickety click those links above. And do tweet me what book you are reading (and please don’t admit to 50 Shades of Gray). I need a good read. Come on a Safari with the Fashion Hunter..a Surfin’ Safari.
