Take A Dip


Happy mid-week, loves!  Hope you're all enjoying the week so far.

Is it just me or has the summer been on fast forward ever since the end of July? I guess I start to feel this way every year right after my birthday.  I feel like the summer is slipping right through my fingertips.  And usually I don't mind that much because I have fall to look forward to.  But this year I'm feeling extra greedy and am craving more fun in the sun. 

I know most of you are probably thinking "Dawn, get a hold of yourself.  You spend every single second you can at the beach.  How greedy can you get?"  But I haven't been at the beach since the Bahamas a few weeks ago {I know, poor baby, right?} and now I'm thinking of some other things I haven't really taken advantage of this summer.  Right up at the top my list is pool time.  I've hardly been in a pool at all {ok, I lie...minus an hour at the Versailles Pool at the One&Only in the Bahamas, and minus my housemates amazing pool right on the beach in Fire Island...} but like I said, it's been a while.  And there's something so nice about being in a pool.  The glam factor definitely goes up a notch and there's not that pesky sand to deal with.

So on that note, I'm think going to make it a point over these last few weeks to try to find myself a pool to take a dip or two in.  Would anyone care to invite me over?  I bring the beverages :)

Have a wonderful day, sweets!

xoxo

Haha I totally agree with you Dawn! Of course you need some more pool time! Go for it. I am going down right now to the pool here in Marbella were we are vacationing, and I am waiting for you. Oh, and don´t forget the beverages:)

Well Its sad that I live in Istanbul very far from you. We have a big pool but I don't often use it! I guess I gotta make more time to enjoy it before summer slips over. Have a great week :-)

It would be nice to get to a pool. I've not been swimming in ages. I had one time at the beach this summer and that was it. I could really do with a rest at the pool or beach, but maybe in my dreams. School time again, haha. The time went by fast, can't even remember some of my summer, haha. Have a fun rest of the week doll and have some pool time while you can :)) xoxo

Love those dotted glasses! I can't seem to get over how fast the summer has gone, it's like it's on high speed right now, racing into fall. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

I've got a pool! Ok, it's an apartment pool, haha.

classiq said...

This is exactly the same feeling I get about summer after my birthday. It can't be true that it's already mid-August. We should take advantage of every second of it and if this means you have to spend some time at the pool then you should do just that. xo

Samantha Green said...

i would be right there with you. pool time and some sunshine sound amazing right now! :) xx

Alexa said...

Oh man wish we had a pool...would have you over in a second. And drinks sound marvelous!

With love... said...

You are always welcome in curacao.
We have an ocean that looks like a pool :)

Angie Mahoney said...

Love my pool time with a pina colada and a good magazine...I would join you in a split second!

Can't wait for some pool time! xoxo

Oh my gosh - yes, summer is flying by especially August! I want to just hit pause and enjoy some of the sun a little extra longer!
Much love,
B

Katie said...

We have a pool in our subdivision that I haven't been to in weeks. I'll take you up on that deal - come on over with the drinks and we'll have a pool day! :)

Christine @Fancy Function said...

I feel the same way! I thought this summer went very quickly to begin with but after my birthday, time is really flying! But I love the fall too. :)

Leslie said...

We had a pool when we lived in southern California .. Blazing hot there and pool time was a daily occurrence!

Summer is flying by! I love August .. everyone is in vacation mode..I like the relaxed vibe :)

I think the summer has been flying by for sure. But I think it makes perfect sense to spend as much time at the beach or pool as possible, especially since it's almost fall!

Oh man, I'm so with you on this. While the beach is... the beach, there's no comparison really, it's so special and amazing etc etc, there is something so... clean... about the pool. No sand, as you mentioned, and no suspicious sea creatures.. ;) I'd say you aren't greedy in the least for wanting more summer. I'm right there with you!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I know what you mean, I start feeling like summer is over the week before the girls go back to school, and then I schedule way too much stuff because i want our last week off to be just SO FUN! Nuts.

Count your blessings, I haven't been to the beach at all this year! How I ended up in a country without a sea coast is beyond me.

GlamFabChameleon said...

I feel the same Dawn, the summer is passing so quickly!:( I hope you will enjoy some pool time soon!;)
Happy Wednesday! xoxo

The Now said...

You are not greedy! I wish I lived in San Diego still and could go to the beach everyday. Sadly I didn't take advantage of my neighborhood when I was there and now I miss it so much. So, I understand. Also...those polka dot glasses are the cutest!! xoxo

Adele said...

I think the more sun/beach etc you get, the more you want & hey why not! I also feel summer is starting to pass us by & our weather in the UK is so lousy!!
Happy Wednesday Hun xoxo

When I see these images I don't want the summer to end!

Actually, lately I have been feeling a little excitement inside for autumn. It will be our first in Luxembourg so I guess I'm curious to see how autumn feels like over here. I also know that as soon as it starts getting colder I'll be craving for spring.

I definitely need a deep too, summer is ending and I don't want fall to come at all, can we have summer forever?
Enjoy your dip, am going to the pool probably tomorrow.

I love those glasses. Polka dots! I want a private pool :)

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Oooh, sounds divine! I have to say I'm more of a beach girl but do agree that the sand and salt water can be a pain sometimes...

Good luck hunting down a pool for this weekend! I guess worst case scenario, you can just head back to Fire Island, no? Lucky thing!

bridechic said...

I would have invited you to lovely SF to swim as I was going to have a pool put in this summer but . . . our backyard plans for it fell through so here I am at my good old laptop. I do know how you love the beach though

trishie said...

End of summer for you means warmer days are awaiting me! I would love to go for a dip then.

Enjoy the last summer days!

SabinePsynopsis said...

You're invited at our pool any time, Dawn. It's just a hop from NY to Pisa... xoxo

honey my heart said...

I went to a launch for a gorgeous Summer collection today and together with all your pool talk, I am definitely craving summer!x
