What’s In the Bag?

bag Earlier this month I was on the lookout for a new swimsuit to wear on an upcoming vacation to Turks and Caicos; always plan a swimsuit ‘outfit’ from head to toe since that’s generally the outfit of the whole day…..not having much time, it was down to the wire and thinking that maybe I would be out of luck – until I visited the Pop-Up Everything But Water Shop in the West Village of Manhattan, where ‘everything’ is WHITE! Even the adorable young women working in the shop only wear white and shades of white – a very cleansing and uplifting atmosphere I must say….after trying on about eight swimsuits, multiple hats, and a few different cover-ups, here is what I ended up with…..bikini Because I am a fanatic about cutting out bathing suit tags (so the tag won’t pop out and ruin the look) I can’t say what brand this is, but the pearl, gold, and lace trim give it a ‘sweet/feminine’ look…

I especially love the cover-up by L-Space that is beige and white with open shoulders and deep side slits…..

Last but not least – a new hat! It was between this hat and a wider brimmed straw hat…..the straw hat was more dramatic, that was hard to pass up….how did I decide? I thought this canvas hat would be more comfortable to wear sitting in a beach chair and/or sitting at a beach bar….plus it would be easier to pack…it was a good choice as I wore it quite a bit, not only with this swimsuit……..

March vacation is now a fond memory, time to start planning the next one!
