I’m such a Beach.

Wearing: Jeans-Anthropologie Ankle Stevies, Top-Target, Cardi-J.Crew, Necklace-Anthropologie Danver Necklace, Shoes-Dolce Vita

He-he…couldn’t resist the pun.

Thanks to good karma, I purchased these AG jeans 12 days before they hit sale! Or maybe it’s my Anthrosense, kind of like a sixth sense. Hey, it happens when you Anthro (yes, I just turned shopping at Anthro into a verb) as much as I do. I was super glad to snag these and then promptly get a price adjustment!  Kudos to the awesome San Antonio SA  who took the time to call around and locate a pair in my size. It wasn’t easy. Thankyouthankyouthankyou! And, thank you to Roxy who was my trusty source in recalling the name of the above necklace, the link of which has been removed from Anthro’s site. Boo! You are truly an Anthro-Sensei!

Holy cow.  This past week was INSANE.  And I truly mean that.  I won’t saddle y’all with the details, but let me just say I think this week took a good 4 years off my life.  Good thing we’re headed to the BEACH on Tuesday!  I can’t wait to lounge, soak, play, burn, laugh, and repeat.

In preparation for our beachcation, I took stock of my swimming suit situation.  It was grim, ladies.


I never thought I’d use the word ‘hate’ and ‘shopping’ in the same sentence, but I literally despise the entire swimsuit finding process.  I began looking at all my usual haunts. Nada.  I just didn’t feel the love.

I came this close to pulling the trigger on a J.Crew suit that was 70% off, but feared the length would fall short on my almost 5’10” frame.

Anthro had a few contenders, but I wasn’t truly gaga for their current online selection.

What’s a picky swimerista to do but turn to ebay….and hunt for Anthro suits gone by? I did just that and I might have a bruise on my back from all the patting I did when the swimsuits arrived the other day.

I nailed it.

Couldn’t have been done without the awesome reviews written by fellow swimeristas. So I thank you, one and all, those who reviewed my new swim-sistahs.

Surf City Maillot - Took a Medium in this, and I'm normally a size 4 - 6.


Sea Anemone Maillot - Medium as well. The cups are lacking ample occupants, but I wouldn't go down in size because it fits everywhere else perfectly.

look at the back view:

So cute. right? The fit on the legs are awesome.  Devoid of tight elastic that squishes the butt/thighs. Yes!

So I’m all set now!  I have posts scheduled to run while I’m out…Little Man Baby Shower (finally!), Flex Your Styling Muscle Series, and a Colorphile posts to boot.  Hope you are all having a lovely Memorial Weekend, taking a moment to reflect why we get a blessed day off in the first place

xoxo Molly.
