bikini

“made of flesh. made of sand. made of human”

Here’s what I wore today:

It was a laid-back day off of work with plans to surf in the evening. I wore a camel-colored corduroy skirt by Bongo that I got at a thrift store not that long ago for a couple of bucks. I wore a brand new, plain white t that I got from Ross for $7.99 (I go crazy for a fresh white T/tank… I just love them!) I had my usual Sanuk flip flips on and borrowed my friend’s hat that was laying around the boys’ house.

Here’s how I accessorized:

(crappy cell-phone pic) My short silver chain w/ shamrock, long owl necklace, Lucky Brand Peace sign earrings, my claddagh ring, owl ring, silver chain bracelet, silver bangle, Alex & Ani star of venus bangle, earth tone beads and jade beads.

But that wasn’t my only look for the day. Once it was time to head to the beach I had to switch it up.

I borrowed the men’s Levi plaid button up and simply tied it around my waist. I wore a pair of white shorts for a small amount of time as well.

As soon as we got out there, the white shorts came off. Later on, once I was tired of being tossed around like a rag doll, I wore the shirt open and untied without the shorts.

I happened to be wearing the oldest bathing suit I own, but it’s an “old faithful” for me. It’s my black and teal Billabong bikini.

It was a glorious evening at the beach; we didn’t leave until well after the sun went down. The beach at dusk is beautiful… I may not have had any major break-throughs in my surfing “lessons”, but I got some writing down and generally just enjoyed the salty air and warm breeze.

Thanks for reading! Love, GK

Beach Bummin’ It

Ok, I did even worse today than I did yesterday at remembering to capture my Daily Threads look.

I spent most of the afternoon at the beach with the boys and so my attire consisted of my bathing suit, an old pink racer-back tank, my billabong jean shorts and sanuk flip flops. Except, I quickly lost the flip flops and the shorts followed pretty quickly after.

No jewelry. No makeup.

Most of the pictures we took this afternoon were long shots of us playing around along the shore, surfing or playing frisbee. This is a shot of me while playing frizbee. You can see I have on the bikini and the pink tank only at this point.

Pretty far away (I zoomed in as much as I could without it looking all pixely) but here you can at least see the bikini. I love it. It’s an adorable sea-green/teal color (one of my favorites that always looks great on me) and it has an underwire and push-up “technology” similar to the Miraculous Bikini top from Victorias Secret, except I bought this at Target for a fraction of the price and it isn’t as huge and bulky at the VS one.

There ya go. I’m trying to keep my promise and keep up with my Daily Threads. If you like what you read, please subscribe, or bookmark me, whatever… just come back.
