Paris Chic

It’s a little slow on the blog this week as it’s Spring break for my kids.  We spent last week finishing up the sale of Mr. Tall’s business – which was his Spring break. He’s officially a full time student. Since the Spring breaks were on different weeks, it put a kink in my family traveling anywhere.

So today’s outfit is inspired of me dreaming of a trip to Paris.  I’ve been working on one for a client.  I hope to return there again someday.   Dreaming….

Swimsuit Recommendation from a Reader

One of our readers has searched high and low for a long torso swimsuit and ordered several items that haven’t worked for her.  She finally found one in a store in Portland, Oregon.  The one she love is also sold at JCPenney here.

It’s not a “long torso”, but here is what Lara says, “as I said, it fits my long torso and my small bust and the lower leg openings gives it the look and feel of a retro suit or like having boy shorts on. It has shirring down the front and nice detail around the arm area. It’s very flattering! And it’s totally affordable! I got it in the colorful, tropical print. It also comes in plus size.

I’m 6’1” with a 36” inseam and wear size 10-12 (depending on the cut, I need a 12 on the bottom, while I usually need a 10 on top). I got this suit in a 12 and it fits like a glove! No gaping on the top while still fitting and feeling comfy on the bottom.”
Thank you Lara for sharing your recommendation.  Swimsuits are one of the hardest items to get to fit right and we all appreciate you sharing your great find. If any of you have an item you’ve recently found and love, please be a good friend and share with all of us.
