Give me 77 degree weather for both weekend days and you can be sure to find me at the beach. What would make me even happier is that 77 degree weather on a beach in a time when I wouldn’t know what the sun was doing to my skin and I wasn’t expected to wear a bikini. Give me a one piece (or a super high waisted bottom like these) and I’ll lay on the beach for hours.
