Guess what? I’m going to Kauai in ten days! This development happened in the blink of an eye and I might be breathing into a paper bag right now, but I’m thrilled beyond belief.
D and I never had a true honeymoon. (I know what you are thinking…we got married in Hawaii, for Christ’s sake. However, we had family with us the entire time. Is that a honeymoon, I ask? IS IT? MOST CERTAINLY NOT.) We really need this right now.
So, Hawaii. This puts a little bit of a damper on my No Shopping Mandate, as my two bathing suit bottoms look like I took a dump in them. A little baggy in the rear department, thanks to a combination of worry and Jillian Michaels. I need a new bathing suit, some bathing suit coverups and maybe a new pair of flip flops.
In a Daddy Warbucks-attempt to make my February blues disappear, my most wonderful father presented me with a check for $300. I am going to use this money to fund my Hawaii wardrobe…reporting everything to you in the process.
Luckily, I have found my two bathing suit coverups for cheap!
I don’t think this was made to be a bathing suit coverup, but it’s perfect. Super lightweight cotton and ideal for drinks by the pool. I also am buying this in black with my 30% Give and Get promotion…let’s tally it up!
Purple dress: $15 (on sale)
Black dress: $19.50
Total (with 30% off): $24.15 + tax
I also ordered 7,650 bathing suits from J. Crew yesterday in hopes to find ONE that fits. I can’t wait to return approximately 22 pieces to my local store. They will LOVE me.
