Summer Favorites

     I know, I know. The first official day of summer isn't until mid June. But for me Memorial Day is the kick off to the summer season. So for all intents and purposes, let's say SUMMER IS HERE! And as such, I have compiled a little list of some of my faves for the hot days.

     I detest public swimming pools. I just can't stand the thought of getting into a festering human stew. But since I have kids and no pool of my own, I go to the public pools and waterparks. For this I need a swim suit. One that covers all my lumps and bumps but doesn't look like a tent that was made for an 80 year old. This year I picked out a black cutout bandeau that fits the bill. It's cute, reasonably priced, and I could buy it a few aisles down from diapers and Rice Krispies at Target (more on that experience here). While I was there I also found this darling graphic tank cover up that has a cute strappy back. For a day at the pool one also needs a wide brim floppy straw hat and super dark sunnies. They'll save you from the glare of the sun and make you feel like an A-list celeb avoiding the paparazzi.
