Hi guys! So this is the last look from my swim shoot with Gen (other two here and here). I love any chance to get all kitchy and retro, especially at the beach. It's just so fun and playful-- totally feels like you're in a 60's beach flick, you know? Haha. I really loved this houndstooth + watermelon print mix, too. They're totally different prints but together they make for a quirky, retro beach look. My one regret in this outfit shoot was forgetting to add my dainty flamingo necklace! I mean, it doesn't get any more retro and kitschy than a flamingo! I remembered to wear it for the one-piece look but totally forgot about it for this outfit.

So that's it for the swim looks for this year, too! I thought I'd be going to the beach more often, given how much I went in the spring, but turns out we have this lovely flesh-eating bacteria thing going on right now that 10 people have died from. So I stopped going. Not interested in the risk. It took so much self-control not to go into the water that day! And now it's August, which only means one thing: JELLYFISH SEASON IS UPON US. So yeah, no more swim looks for me until 2016!

Thanks for visiting, everyone!
