We’re at a weekend in May that, for me, starts all sorts of vacations. Or at least a vacation mindset. It’s the weekend for a lot of graduations. And of course Mother’s Day. For me and my family, it’s also the weekend (or this year the Monday and Tuesday after Mother’s Day) of my mother’s and my own birthdays (Monday and Tuesday, respectively). Essentially, for me, this weekend and the following few days, are full of celebrations, dinners, and great outfits. Exactly the kind of thing that puts you in the vacation mindset.
And what’s a vacation without a swimsuit? Or, perhaps I should say that this is the weekend that I want to start wearing swimsuits with everything. Especially swimsuits that double as a bodysuit, with a chic skirt and a hat (this green lushness is my backyard but I’m convinced this outfit will look just as great in jungles and by pools and seasides alike).
Yet- with all of this vacation mindset (and swimsuits), this is also a time when I stick to classics- maybe it’s all the time with my mom (which I love), or maybe it’s the classics let you play a bit more (aka classic colors and polka dots with a sheer like skirt).
It’s Black, White, and Green all Over.
I’m looking forward to the upcoming summer months. And vacations. And wearing swimsuits with everything. And there’s a part of me that’s looking forward to having a weekend that’s a bit more classical. Am I the only one who’s was reminded of Dr. Seuss with this title? This big birthday weekend always makes me think about my childhood and what I want for the next year. As a kid I loved Dr. Seuss, in fact the night that my little sister was born, when my parents dropped me off with a family friend, I made the mom of the family read Green Eggs and Ham to me at least 100 times (if not 100 times more than that). The thing is- I love a classic. And I love mixing a classic up- aka wearing swim suits with everything. In the coming year, I hope that there’s a lot of both. Classics. Mixing it up. Trying new things. sticking to what works. Finding things that make em smile.
This weekend I’ll be in IG a lot, sharing our celebrations, sharing what I’m wearing, both classic and with a twist. And I’ll be spending the next few weeks thinking and planning where all I can wear a swim suit. Especially the white and black ones. Especially where it’s green!
Wishing you and yours a happy Mother’s Day, or that it lands gently for you, and hoping that your classics pair well with all your twists. Linking this outfit below for your shopping pleasure!
