Good Monday morning, lovelies! Hope you all had a great weekend and for those of you who had to deal with the hurricane, that you made it through ok. Luckily the storm has passed but unfortunately we're still unable to get to Fire Island to start our summer vacation. There was a lot of flooding and they're saying the earliest we could expect to possibly get on over to the island is tomorrow.

I know the summer's just about to end but I'm not ready to give it up just quite yet. In fact I've been doing a bit of bathing suit shopping lately. {I've had a lot of time on my hands at the computer the past few days... :)} And after wearing mostly solids all summer I've been gravitating towards prints lately. The more colorful, the better. And isn't this the perfect pool to wear them by? Can you say heavenly?

How bout you all? Do you like prints for your swimwear or do you stick to solids?

Have a wonderful day, loves and hope tomorrow I'm writing from the beach! :)

xoxo

I find myself admiring the prints but always going for the solids. Maybe next summer I'll do it differently ;-)

I'm glad to hear that you're OK and the storm didn't cause more damage. Hopefully you'll be able to go to the beach house tomorrow!

aaw glad everything went well over the weekend, hopefully you can head to the beach soon, missing the sun!

Noe @ ADELLA AVENUE said...

Good to know you are safe, but I hope you get to start your vacation soon.

As far as swimwear goes, prints or solids depend on my mood. I like the classic appeal of a solid, but prints always scream fun to me, so it's a toss up for sure.

Keep safe!

I love light flowy patterned sun dresses, definitely my favorite summer attire. So glad you are ok after this weekend!

Heavenly indeed. I love the prints, and today polka dots are part of my outfit. :)

Great to hear that the storm was relatively ok.


Have a fabulous week, I hope it will be a summary one.

I just want access to a pool. The heat is oppressive and I am even considering buying a baby pool for our little porch to flop around in.

A summer vacation right about now sounds heavenly! I hope you get over to Fire Island safely and soon! I'm about to embark on some serious beach time myself, as soon as Aug. 31 passes, I'll be at our quieter beaches. I'm a prints girl myself and plan on scooping a certain bathingsuit I've had my eye on as soon as it goes on sale!
