I’m officially back from summer vacation and ready for August’s weekend whirlwinds (including a very exciting upcoming event in St. Louis – so save the date for the morning of August 16th, okay?) In the meantime: polka dots, modest swimsuits and the beach! And a discount code just for you!

More and more lately, I find myself wondering how on earth I’ve managed to live my entire life smack dab in the very center of a the midwest plains that are cut off from two of the largest oceans in the world by two very beautiful mountain ranges. Me, a person who could cry from relief at the mere sight of saltwater, someone who can finally breathe again at the first hint of salty sea air. Crowding the shoreline, I had to keep my composure as I rode wave after wave of ocean surf crashing onto the beach shoreline. Oh sure, I biffed it a few times and hit the waves too late but I’m never one to let that scary drowning sensation keep me from trying over again and again (my kids didn’t really feel the same way about that, lol!) Then again, maybe my good mood was due to this polka dot number, complete with aqua-colored bow and contrast piping in just the right places.
It could have also been my sweet nieces who shame me with their awesome tans-of-children-playing-outside-all-day-every-day-in-summer.
