Day 1, Dress 91: We're Off to the Beach
Day 1 is here and I'm starting the month with the ugliest dress in my closet, but I've got something very cute on underneath so I think y'all will forgive me.
It was 95+ degrees today so I took a beach day. The perfect day at the beach, although the waves were definitely too big for my taste. I mostly wore my adorable new Monif C. bathing suit, but I threw on this cover-up so I had a dress to show you. I got the cover-up at some random cheapie store near my house and can't tell you anything about it. I can however tell you about my bathing suit.
Isn't it pretty? If you've never checked out Monif C's bathing suits I recommend doing so. They're pretty pricey but I was able to get mine using a whole lot of store credit at Re/Dress NYC - yay! They've got a lot of support, lining and are well made. I do however have a major problem with it that I'm hoping one of you has a suggestion for.
The bathing suit is lined and there is now a ton of sand trapped in the lining of my suit. Like I mentioned, the waves were really big so I just sort of sat on the sand and let the waves crash over me. I know I'm a baby, so let's move on back to my problem at hand of sand stuck in my suit. There are no openings in the lining and I don't want to cut one, but I also don't want to put on a suit with a cup of sand in it. What to do dear readers, what to do? I'm sure I can't be the first person this has happened to.
I'm also wearing Betsey Johnson sunglasses and a cute little flower pin in my hair courtesy of today's photographer/stylist Veronica.
