I have one more final on Saturday (civil procedure), and then it’s a few weeks of R&R at my favorite lakeside Tiki bar.  Praise be.  These frozen coconut limeades from Smitten Kitchen are the perfect way to prepare.

They only have five ingredients, none of which are alcoholic.  However, a shot of tequila or rum would be a welcome addition.

Victoria’s Secret Bandeau Bikini ($39.50 + $38.50)

I wanted to pick up one more swimsuit before I left for vacation.  The quality of the VS suits is good, they come in lots of colors, and you can mix-and-match tops and bottoms.  This twisted bandeau halter and a low-rise brief (not the one pictured) were just the ticket.  I also like this high-neck top with woven details.  This convertible halter top is a versatile choice.

Old Navy also has some inexpensive choices.  I like this twisted bandeau and this pink stripe is adorable.

And if you want to catch a more expensive suit on an end-of-season sale, Shopbop is a great place to start.

Plus-size? I really like this Anne Cole suit and this ruffled Torrid suit.

Happy Hour

    I bought that suit last week too. It’s a winner. And you can add extra “support” to the top.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
