Saluting Summer

Pat snapped these photos for me last Saturday, shortly before an expedition in his boat down the Georges River. We both felt like swimming (which never happens, because Pat isn’t exactly a fan of swimming), and we wanted to take advantage of what would turn out to be the last beautiful and non rainy day of summer. I haven’t worn a one piece swimming costume since I was in primary school, but I thought I would give this gorgeous leopard print style from Cotton On Body a go. The backlessness (yes, “backlessness” IS a word. I just got it officially added to the dictionary. What of it?) was what appealed to me most, and it has been great to wear as part of other outfits as well as for swimming! These shorts were snatched up at the dirt cheap price of $15, and I am very pleased with them. Having said all of that, I am SO ready to put together some amazing autumnal outfits and share them with you all.
Our expedition down the river was a slight failure, thanks to some obnoxious water skiers and some irresponsible litterers. On the upside, were able to swim in Pat’s neighbour’s pool when we got back, and I at least got to wear my gorgeous cozzie one final time! Summer, you’ve been great.
