It's Still Summer, Right?

Summer is my most cherished season, and I feel like this one has been slipping through my fingers. I had two almost back-to-back business trips (I won't complain about going to Paris), and then upon return from my second trip, I had to start reporting for Grand Jury duty. So yeah. Grand Jury. That's what I've been doing for the past two weeks.

There have been two perks to jury duty that I have identified so far:
1. Close proximity to Smile to Go, where I've been eating lunch pretty much every day. Finally allowed myself a sweet treat today, and am kicking myself for not trying out their incredible chocolate chunk cookies with sea salt earlier.

2. An okay walking distance to Gargyle on Orchard Street. It took me about 15 minutes to get there from the courthouse, and I was on a mission: to find and purchase this Poppy-print triangle bikini by LOVER.

I've been harboring a borderline obsession with LOVER swimwear ever since I bought this Ikat-print bandeau a couple of years ago. The fabric is such great quality—so soft yet a hardy spandex that keeps it's shape and wears incredibly well. When I saw this darker colorway peppered with white flowers, I loved the painterly nature of the print and knew this needed to be my 2013 bikini. The only thing in my way was Gargyle's free shipping threshold of $150+. Um, hello hashtag pet peeve.

But no matter for this (temporarily) downtown gal, and my mission that day was successful. Found my size in the store and I was in and out of there in 10 minutes.

Welcome home, LOVER.
