summer dreamin...

well i guess i'm not in san francisco anymore, it has been crazy hot lately!
which can only mean one thing - i am finally getting to experience my first summer since 2004.
yippeeee!

on saturday the mister and i took an impromptu date during which i stopped in for some gelato. i got to thinking about how that was surely the first of many gelato trips i'll be taking over the next couple months, which made me happier than a little girl with a brand new pony.  i can't wait to compare all the local ice cream shops, dive into my summer goals, and most of all, take about a million {and one} trips to the beach!  in anticipation of these ocean visits, i've been imaginary swim suit shopping.  
there are so many cute ones this year!

i'll take one of each please!
have any favorite swimwear styles or shops? i definitely need to get more use out of the swimsuits i bought for my honeymoon last year, but i am always up for some imaginary shopping. besides imaginary
shopping is a fantastic cost effective alternative to real life shopping, am i right?

  4. I love all of these! Enjoy many beach days. One of the (few) advantages of LA over SF ;)

  7. So cute!! I've been wanting to buy a one-piece for so long now...but I don't wear swimsuits often enough to justify buying another ;) Imaginary shopping for me it is! :)

  8. These are all so cute! I especially love the last row! I tend to cheap out pretty hardcore when it comes to swimsuits, so it's usually Walmart or Target for me! I did my first mix and match this year which was fun! I hope you get to do REAL swimsuit shopping soon and find the perfect one!

  9. I would love to get a vintage swimsuit and a great big floppy sunhat. I'd sit by the lake all day, sipping my diet Coke, reading trashy summer-type novels, and going for the occasional swim. Then back to shore to dry off in the lovely, hot summer sun and start all over again...

    And yes! I love imaginary shopping. It's almost as fun as imaginary house-decorating!

  10. I've totally been drooling over that Anthro one piece!

  11. I love the one pieces! I love to go imaginary shopping, which always happens to be at Anthro because we all know I am not spending $300 on a dress, even if it is the cutest dress known to mankind.
    Happy gelato eating!

  12. I like the Marysia one piece. I've always been a one piece kind of gal because I burn so easily and it really stinks to get a burn on your stomach! Yet if I wear one I'm the only girl between the ages of 16 and 30 that wears one! But you can dive through waves safely in a one piece. :)

    Have fun Kim, I'm glad you get to enjoy a real summer finally! Have all the gelato you can handle!

  13. I like that Marysia one most of all...it looks like a great cut.
    I hope you're enjoying the warm weather. Its actually relatively warm here in SF right now.
    (p.s. next time you're in the bay area, you really must try Ici...its SO good, and worth the out-the-door, down-the-block line :)

  18. Great suits! Yes, it has been so hot here in CA, eh? We're on the Central Coast and it's hotter than it's been in a long while! I like it though - and your gelato-laden stroll sounds lovely!

  20. I love how in one pieces are right now! And these are cute!

  21. Love the stripey Antrho one piece. I've been feeling like I've reached an age where I dont really want to show my tummy but don't want to look like a total fuddy duddy in a one piece. Cute, stylish, and slightly sexy one pieces have been hard to find!

  22. I loveeee the middle one! I haven't gotten a new suit yet...this summer crept up so fast. It's definitely not feeling like San Francisco anymore...whew.

  23. Well I just moved to San Francisco (for the summer) so it looks like we've switched places! That Marysia number has my name written all over it. Maybe once I move back east! :)
