a beach is a beach…

To me, palm trees are like mountains.  You see one, you’ve seen them all.

I have a similar mindset about beaches.  Granted  I can differentiate between Padre and St Tropez, but one tropical locale from the next gets a little trickier.image

I’m sure this is all very small beach minded to an island connoisseur.   But I’m no beach connoisseur, just a cocktail and swim suit expert.imageSand is sand.  Mai Tais are Mai Tais.

But a retro bikini?  Now that, I get.

Time has kind of flown by, I finally looked up at September is almost over.  Which gives me about a month til we are headed off for a week of Hawaiian sun.

So I’ve been scouring the internets looking for cute swimsuits and found the most adorable one-piece with a mini-tummy cut out by Lolli Swim.

I love bright colors with black & white stripes.  Love the contrast.

Red with b&w always makes me feel like I’m trying to look french, so I opted for royal purple and neon pink.

Because neon pink goes with everything.
