Sailboats by the Sea
Hello there! I feel like a whole new girl after a beautiful, sunny, warm, breezy day by the sea. Isn't it glorious what a difference the sunshine can make? I sure hope this weather lasts. It was so nice and peaceful being at the beach early in the morning on a weekday- I only saw about three other people. And all the different shades of green and blue water playing off the light were mesmerizing. I waited weeks for a day like this, to go out and photograph some nice seaside images, and getting a new swimsuit made me even more excited.
You guys...I am really picky with swimsuits...I buy one, like, once every four years and wear it until it falls apart. I never like how they fit me, I rarely see a style that excites me, and I usually just buy a top and wear it with some generic waterproof skort thing I pilfered from the swimsuit bin at my parents'. I am so. excited. about this swimsuit. It is olive green, first of all, instead of a tacky neon 'summer' green, and I feel like a nice neutral coloured swimsuit is hard to find. It has a cute, simple print. Sailboats, people. It has unique details, like the grecian style single strap, and the fact that the strap is a braid that runs across the bodice. AND it fits perfectly- the bottoms are a great cut and the torso is just the right length.
When DownEast contacted me about reviewing an item from their store, I was very excited to find out that I could pick anything, even from the swim section- and once I came across this one I was completely smitten. Once it arrived and I tried in on and took it out to the beach I was even more enthralled. I don't think I've ever actually been so excited about an overall swimsuit design. it's the perfect mix of interesting, fun, unique, and elegant.
