We just had our first dusting of snow this week, and yet tonight, my mind is on the beach, preferably somewhere in southern Italy, wearing this.

Ever since I found out about Esther Williams swimwear, I have been stalking this pretty red suit. I’ve only paid this much for a swimsuit on one other occasion, and that’s probably the suit I still wear the most.

Why is it that at Target, the only cute swimsuits I can find use about 1/4 this material?

Thankfully, I have about 6 months before I’ll need to even consider breaking out my flip flops, sunglasses and (possibly) a new swimsuit! I suppose my beach daydreams are just wishful thinking.
