I just love love love Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits... I'm typing this as I eat Girl Scout cookies... Hmmm...
Anyways.. First, let me say how I am not a fan of the beach. I have very pale skin and the sun is not my friend. My family always ends up going to the beach for vacations (not my idea!). The only part I do like about the beach is wearing fun Lilly suits!
In 2007, we went to Seaside, FL for spring break. If you haven't been there, you should really consider it. It is a quaint little beach town where everyone rides bicycles, drinks soda in bottles, and eats seafood by the sea. It is absolutely beautiful.
I had just bought a new suit to add to my collection and this one was my favorite! It had a few patterns in it and was just adorable. I wore it twice during the break. When we got home, I started to unpack and couldn't find the top!!! I freaked out and made my entire family scour the suitcases. I called the cleaning services that cleans the houses and they hadn't seen it. I begged them to call me back if they found it. I seriously called a few times a week for a couple months. I was SOOO sad that I lost it.
I still had the bottoms, so I kept my eye out everywhere for a top that would match. I ended up finding a pink and white polka dot top that matched one of the patterns from the bottoms, so I have been using that.
But just the other day while searching online, I found a three-piece bathing suit that was one of the dominant patterns of my missing suit!!!
I cannot tell you how thrilled I was! I forked over a good chunk of my monthly allowance. Happily.
If only I were going somewhere for spring break...
