The Early Bird Stops Bitching and Catches That Worm. You Should Too…

BRRRRR.

Stop bitching about the snow. It’s mid-February. It’s the Midwest. It’s going to happen. I’m right with you. It’s isolating, it’s messy, it’s Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder-inducing BUT it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

 

 

 

I have chosen to take all of winter’s dreary down-time and switch the focus from;

“Where have all of my shrubs disappeared to?” And, “God I hate the ocean of sludge on the floor of my garage” to LET’S GO SWIMSUIT SHOPPING! Don’t call me crazy. Just call me prepared. I promise, you’ll thank me.

Start looking. Start NOW. As I’ve preached before, you’ve go to get to gettin’ because come May, all you’ll be left with are the XS string bikinis at Target and the XXL swimdresses at Macy’s. Now turn your eyes away from the skies and focus right here. I’m going to give you 3 great reasons why you need to get your swimmy-swimsuit shopping on RIGHT NOW!!!

 

1)   They’re in the stores, they’re in your mailbox and they’re featured online. Even though it’s clearly not summer – it is Resort Season. Winter escapes and Spring Breaks demand new spring styles and winter availability. Use this to scout what you’d like to be wearing when the temps finally rise above 20 and the sun decides to shine.  Knowledge is power people!!!

Victoria's Secret is in FULL SUMMER SWING. Teeny bikinis and cover-ups galore.

2)   There’s nothing worse than stressed-out swimsuit shopping. If you’re partial to a certain brand or style, get it now. You prepare for the onslaught of a winter storm, so prepare for the summer sun – your poolside ensemble will be ready and waiting. You’ll feel confident about your choice and enjoy the summer season. Don’t get stuck with slim pickins’. Attempted Analogy: What a drag to show-up at the grocery store with only rye bread and soy milk left to get your family through the storm. Uh-huh. Now I think you’re getting me.

Garnet Hill has some of the BEST and most unique swimwear. My "early bird" research has turned-up several styles already on backorder…WHO'S CRAZY NOW FOLKS!?

3)   If it looks good in the dead of winter on your pasty-white skin, then it looks GOOD. I’m serious. They say to look your best when trying on swimwear (which does make it less painful) but really – are we fully made up when we wear them? Nope.  If you can stand there and look yourself in the mirror without becoming nauseous, crying or only peeking through the gaps in the fingers covering your eyes . . . buy that bitch. She’s a keeper.

J Crew gets it right with tons of colors and styles guaranteed to hold back the tears.

Now if that didn’t help. At least a stole a few minutes of your time away from your constant Facebook posting about the dreaded weather.  Grab a catalog, power-up your computer or head to the mall. The time is now. See you at the beach . . .feeling great.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
