A Monday Sketch
I mean, there are some good things about Myrtle Beach. For example, it's the only place I've ever been able to go shopping inside of a shark's mouth. There is no shortage of beach towels featuring scantily clad ladies, and I'm pretty sure you can still find rebel flag bikinis there at Wings and/or Eagles...if that's what you're into. You can also get a good look at some very leathery-looking bikini-wearing old ladies if you're jonesing for that. I'm fairly sure I've seen more that one octogenarian who would have referred to herself as a "bronzed goddess," wearing a metallic bikini with a shock of cottony-looking white hair. Delish.
But today I just wanted to have a classier-looking sketch of something a bit more trendy here in the magazines, blogs, and online shopping I've been doing. For this summer I've been seeing a lot of what they call "beach corsettes," a bikini top that is a bit longer without being a "tankini," as well as higher-waisted swim bottoms. Punch it up with a fun Jelly tote to keep books, magazines, and towels dry. I mean, if you really needed to, you could top this all off with an airbrushed tee shirt featuring a lady's bikini body. No one has to know you have good taste. And, if you're anything like me, you'll be sporting some cat stuff somewhere anyway.
