A Swimsuit Is My Daily Dress!
As they say in Pennsylvania, I've been "readying-up" my closets. Three down and three more to go!
The purging of my Pennsylvania clothes tells the story of my Before Beach Cottage Life. Now revealed is my former life, my present life, what I have and what I need.
Missing are light-weight cotton pants for hiking. But, I do have piles of crop pants for Summer beach walks and loads of sweat pants for enjoying the late-night bonfires.
Gone are intricate Summer dresses in favor of very comfy cotton tops and full skirts now my weekly "go-to-the-beach" commute uniform.
Gone are fluffy sweaters in favor of Nike techno-jackets for braving the ocean-side winds.
Appearing out of nowhere are now stacks of "cute going out tops" ..... now purged according to sun or beer-staining.
Carefully curated very-lady-like handbags are now ignored for ones that are big enough to hold beach commute needs, but whose color and style must shout : I am Going to Dewey Beach!
Gone are my closed-toe and high heel shoes!!!! My feet could care less for anything but sandals, sandals, sandals, and clogs!
In high Summer my uniform is a two-piece bathing suit topped with a simple cotton seersucker sundress! Off I go to use the computer at my beloved Rehoboth Library! Off to Fifer's to get a fruit pie! And then off to Cape Henlopen State Park for Piping Plover Monitoring and a Swim.
A Swimsuit As my Daily Dress: silly happy am I.
