A new Bathing Suit. . . or Two

Ever since I read Brooch's post about potential Honeymoon Attire, I've been totally distracted. Seriously, I don't know why it hadn't occured to me before, but after reading that she was looking for a new bathing suit (and more), I had a crazy moment of "I NEED a new one, too!" Since then, I've put all this wedding planning out of my mind to focus on the big h-moon coming up (Darn you, B, for distracting me!).

I totally need to clue you in on our honeymoon, but since I haven't written that post yet, I'll just let you know I will be spending a week on a beach.

Anyway, I had no idea where to look for a suit at this time of the year. It's only, you know, a cool 20 degrees in Chi-Town today. I knew I'd have to shop online, because no where in the area is carrying swimwear right now. I went to the boards for help, ad got some great suggestions, but ended up going to Kohl' I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money, seeing as I'm saving my cash from some -ahem- different pieces of honeymoon attire.

I don't know if you've ever been to Kohl's, but it's kind of like a JC Penny's. There's a store right by my house, and I pretty much get all my clothes there.Out of what I'm wearing today, my jeans, shoes, and bra all came from there. Yes, I just mentioned my bra. You didn't know I'd get all personal.

I was only going to buy one bathing suit . . . but I couldn't make up my mind, and then partner in crime, Mama Giraffe, somehow convinced me to get them both.

Honeymoon, here I come! So here's are the goods (yes, I still shop in the juniors department. Don't judge me.) All screenshots come from

Doesn't that one remind you of Lisa Frank stationary?!

I was going to use my 20% coup, but found a 30% off one online, the pieces were all ready on sale before that, and then I was able to use a free shipping coup too, so needless to say, I got a pretty good deal.

Any other Chicagoans dreaming of sunny beaches? Oops - I mean, anyone else shopping for their honeymoon?
