I really need to get serious about packing. I’ve got most of my clothes that I think I’ll be bringing with me piled up and ready to load in the suitcase, but I haven’t really put much thought into making sure I have matching outfits and shoes. I’ve just thrown all of the super lightweight, cotton, comfortable stuff I own into a pile.
I finally found some comfy shorts I can live with. The best part is, they were between $5 and $10 at Walmart! If they last through my trip, they will have been worth the money.
I’m also thrilled that the swimsuit I ordered back at the beginning of March and have been on a waitlist for finally arrived TODAY. And it fits and its cute. So now I have 3 suits to take with me, two of them I can mix and match. Yeah, I went the route of the skirted suit, but these aren’t grandma-looking and are not swimdresses. Two of them have a cute straight leg mini-skirt and flattering tops that show just the right amount. The third one has a cute blousson type top (but not overly so) with a regular swimsuit bottom that I can swap out with one of the skirts if I’m feeling thigh-shy. When I stop and think about it, I am such a dork…I haven’t worn a swimsuit in ten years and now, I’ll be on vacation for 5 days (4 really since we come home early on the 5th day). Do I really need three swimsuits for that?? 😛
Tomorrow I need to get up and head to Target to return a few things, then I’m going to DSW to use my reward check to find some cute sandals. I have plenty of sandals, but am specifically looking for a slightly dressy but casual and comfy shoe to take with me as a night time shoe for when we go out. Then it’s the gym and tanning again. I actually have the tiniest bit of color now, but considering how white I was to begin with, that isn’t saying much!
I think I’ve gotten over the fat me vs slim Red and am now in the state of mind of IT’S MY VACATION and I’m not going to let my insecurities get in the way! Nothing else I can do about it at this point, so might as well just HAVE FUN! And I plan on doing plenty of that.
I’m anxious to see if the hotel is as nice as it looks in the pictures online.
