(Photos by: Virgi P.)(Swimsuit: Milly, Shorts: 7 For All Mankind, Sunglasses: Karen Walker, Flower Crown: DIY!)
I know it could seem incredibly redundant to share photos of the same sunglasses and DIY flower crown within a couple days of each other but I couldn’t help myself! We decided to go on a little beach excursion [that involved some form of work mind you] and I decided to throw on my Milly one-piece swimsuit. Last minute I put the crown on my head and slipped my sunnies over my eyes as I headed out the door. Suddenly, everything I was wearing felt brand new. I had randomly put together a little beach going outfit that suited me just fine!
So, I have had this Milly suit for years. Years. I can still remember standing in the store deciding whether I should buy it or not. I was on a very tight budget in college and a purchase like that was tremendous! Maybe that’s why it is so valuable to me. I’m sure any other person would have gotten rid of it by now. But I have this thing about holding onto bikini’s and swimsuits until they haven’t any stretch left in them. This suit has stood the test of fashion time. It has gone in and out of trend numerous times. But who cares, right?? I will love it forever and probably make a pillow out of it once it loses all its elasticity. From my college days making irrational fashion purchases to days spent lounging on the beach.. no matter how old it will always be that one-piece swimsuit.
And so I guess the old suits me just fine.
