I’m the kind of person who, no matter the season, is probably shopping spring swimsuits (or any swimsuits, really). It’s not that I’m keen on expanding my swimwear collection, necessarily—in fact, I rarely actually buy the swimsuits I’m perusing. It’s just that swimsuits are the sartorial spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down. In some cases, the “medicine” is the fact that I’m stuck at work when it’s nice AF outside. In other cases, the “medicine” is the weather being absolutely shitty again. I’ve found the most efficient way to ignore the reality of the situation is to keep my eye on all the cute swimsuits worth shopping right now—and to let myself imagine all the idyllic destinations I might visit while clad in them.
If you don’t believe me, please revisit a piece I published in February: “This Frigid Winter Weather Has Me California Dreaming—and Swimsuit Shopping.” Unfortunately, the weather situation has not materially improved over the last month and a half, leaving me on yet another swimsuit shopping binge. What’s nice? Retailers have seriously expanded their spring swimsuit selections since the last time I dug through them, leaving me with all kinds of new bikinis, tankinis and one-pieces to shop—and to fuel my daydreams with.
So take a moment to escape, won’t you? Give yourself a break from work and just spend a few minutes window-shopping spring swimsuits. Invite yourself to imagine all the spring accessories you’d pair them with, all the destinations you’d visit while wearing them, all the Instagrams you’d take in them and (if you’re as metrics-obsessed as I am) all the likes you’d get on said Instagrams. Get away from the cruel reality of blustery days, consistently 40-degree temperatures and puffy coats worn non-stop for months on end. Let yourself live your best life for just a little while, even if only vicariously.
