Straps or No Straps?

After Tuesday's post I have been even more excited for my vacation to Aruba coming up at the end of March.  As much as I love finding new ways to get a fake tan, nothing beats lounging all day in the sun sipping on yummy drinks.  The constant daydreaming has inspired me to start looking for a few new bathing suits.

 I did a little research and found this:


I love this suit, like so much and I have to buy it.  The problem I am facing is I am standing up in a wedding at the end of April and we are wearing a strapless dress.  Since I have become a professional bridesmaid I have given myself a cardinal rule of no straps in the sun.  Now, what do I do?  If I buy this suit and get a tan line because I am enjoying myself and forget to take down the straps, what will I do in the middle of a Chicago winter to erase a tan line?

I really want to buy it, so I have come up with a plan.  I will wear this the second day of vacation.  I normally get the biggest tan lines from the first day when I go from pale to not so pale.  If I wore it day one, I would be struggling to fill them in the entire trip.  Now if I wear it on day two, I will already have a base, and I will have the rest of the trip to blend the tan lines.

What do you think?  Is it worth it?  I just love it so so much!


  1. Being as pale as they come, I totally understand the tan line dilemma. I think the day 2 plan is perfect and will prevent super awful lines. And especially if you have a month between vacation and wedding, I say go for it.

  2. They have that top as a bandeau.. buy it that way no need to worry about tan lines at all :)

    1. I know after I finished the post I actually found it in a bandeau and bought it! I hope it fits it will be just perfect:)
