there is nothing better than spending a day off from work lounging on sand reading a funny book. The beach was hopping this Labor day! The water was as warm as bath water, and the waves were HUGE and salty hair is the best. I was sort of terrified to get into a bathing suit, it's been ages. But after reading the intro to Simon Doonan's book Eccentric Glamour I was liberated and wished I had brought along a giant hat or turban and massive star sunglasses. He states: "eccentric glamour! Create it, grab it, feel it...be it and do so knowing that even if you walk down the street wearing a gold leotard with your lesbian aunt Sylvia's mauve fanny pack cinching your midriff, nobody is judging you. Some people may not even notice you. MOST people will be enjoying you!"
and this goes with my own theory tis better to be dressed insane and kooky than dull or ordinary. Damn why didn't I wear that 70's bikini with the zany animals all over it? This is how I want my beach set up to be next time...sorry for the sideways image- too lazy and weary to use photoshop xoxo
After drinking a really strong salty margarita I then saw a sideways elvis outside the bar. I hope I didn't imagine him- and took this pic as proof
