This is a photo I took of my friend Joy on our last beach trip last year at Munting Buhangin in Batangas. She's being contemplative there. Oh, and I like that suit, hehe!Summer is swimming! No other way to enjoy the sunshine. But how do you dress for the beach or the pool? So many swimming gear to choose from!
I've been looking around for a new suit, which is a bit tough because all the retail stores have either bikinis or backless one-pieces. I want a suit that I can forget about, something that doesn't need constant re-checking (if it's still in place). Plus it has to be pretty! (Another thing I'm on the lookout for is a beach cover-up. I have a few already but they get sandy quickly and there has to be a replacement. Beach trips are also for walking on the shore, so there's got to be a nice piece to cover up with.)
---WARNING: Notes on modesty ahead---
I don't mean to be a prude, but dressing for the beach is a matter of considering what you're making others put up with. If you can't look at dressing as taking care of yourself, at least think of it as taking care of other people.
Besides, isn't the beach supposed to be fun? It's really more awesome when others are looking at your face...it means they think you're somebody they can talk to and not some body they can gawk at.
