Staying in on a Friday night and hanging out on the couch is really cool, guys. It's really cool if it entails finally ordering one of my most favorite things off of the internet. BOWS! Seriously, I haven't been this excited about a bikini in a LONG TIME. And there are a slew of reasons for that, none which I will get into right now...but I am planning on making a batch of margaritas and filling up our kiddie pool in the living room just so I can wear this the very day it comes.
If you have Pinterest, you may have seen these bow top bathing suits (or what I refer to as "Bowkinis"). They are from an Etsy Shop called Amourouse. They come in a small variety of colors and are made to order! My favorites are the striped one above (which is the one I purchased), light blue seersucker, plain black, and black with a small floral print. You can order the swimwear as a two piece suit or just a top. Perfect for mixing and matching.

I should probably calm down a little bit until I am actually "bikini ready." I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions this year because I know full well I never keep them. But having something concrete like this as a carrot in front of the horse, might just make me want to assemble the Ab Roller in my attic. Think I will do it? Yes, of course I will! Riiiight after I'm done dipping this California Pizza Kitchen Barbeque Chicken Pie in the left over packet of Wendy's honey mustard that I found in my glove compartment.

    1. These are the only ones I've seen! But I'm sure eventually less expensive versions will pop up! I will def post if I find some:)
