more preparation

But not for the party. This is really important preparation and it involves a new purchase of the skirted sort.



See we're going to Nantucket for 4th of July weekend. Which is very very exciting for someone from the other coast. I've never been and it seems like if you were to go, 4th of July weekend would be like the jackpot for absorbing the Nantucket vibe. Or not, but I'm going to get excited about it anyway.

I'm fairly certain that no one would expect me to go on this little trip without a new swimsuit at the very least. And it would need to be a special swimsuit. One that feels old-timey? Not a neon string bikini, (which I've noticed is making a comeback). I found the one I want. Actually, it's more like a desperate need.



SKIRT!!!!! I tried it on a few weekends ago but I've been resisting the purchase. However, I keep visiting it online which I think tells me that I really do want it and probably in fact deserve it for practicing such good delay of gratification tactics.

It is also nice for those of us who may be feeling slightly less svelte than 7 months ago at the peak of our fitness... which would be our wedding. We are now old and married and need something to cover our thighs. Anyone with me?

I love the suit. What I do not love is the wrap that is with it. I have it and it drives me NUTS. I'm not sure if you can tell, but it's just one big loop and it never looks right. Grrrr.

Isn't it amazing how on your wedding day you seem to be at your ideal weight and then just a few months later (while still eating, exercising the same) you're not there at all!

Nantucket is beautiful, you'll have a wonderful time! My husband and I go to Cape Cod at least once every summer and we absolutely love it!

You HAVE to get this! It's so classy and perfect. Love that vintage-y look.

Do it! Get the swimsuit!

Susan said...

hey, I don't even know you (but like your blog a lot so that counts!) but you have got to get this swimsuit, it is adorable! Plus you will look fabulous in all the Nantucket photos (and you are right - fourth of July in Nantucket pretty fine).

1. LOVE the suit! It's pretty much the cutest thing this side of the mississippi. and if you wear it to nantucket, it would be the cutest thing THAT side of the mississippi.

2. I am so relieved to know that I am not the only one who is lamenting her decline since the acme of toned arms that was my wedding last august! without the motivation of that white dress and photos looming in my future, ice cream is MUCH harder to resist!

Nantucket is a great place but you should come to Destin Fl and watch a Destin Wedding I think you would like it.

Beachweddings said...

Great View of the beach from the board walk. Looks like place in Destin Fl for Destin beach weddings.

Nantucket is nice , i seen the beaches there several years ago. Destin Florida is prettier and they have thousands of Destin Beach Weddings in Florida. I have not seen one at Nantuckey yet.
