Last week was a warm 49 degrees and after a few days with sunshine I found myself dreaming of swimsuits, the beach, and laying out poolside! Unfortunately for me, I got WAY ahead of myself! Tomorrow’s forecast is a grim 18 degree high! I guess I should have known better than to get excited considering its still January and it has been known to snow as late as April in SLC.
Today I decided to take matters in my own hands! First, I purchased a new swimsuit from RueLaLa.com*, then I went to the gym for a LONG over- due workout (the thought of actually putting that swimsuit on right now makes me actually grateful that it’s not summer time… yet!), then I decided to make believe I was laying in the sun. Yes, I’ll admit it! I went to a tanning salon. For 20 min I pretended I was somewhere warm and loved every min of it! Don’t worry; I wasn’t going for this look:
I was just trying NOT to look like this (sorry Twilight fans!):
I am not an advocate of frequent trips to the tanning spa, but I do believe that a little color on my PASTY body was a good choice! I actually worked at a tanning salon through high school (shout out to the El Dorado Hills Sun Spa!), but now days I prefer fake tan over wrinkles! The only downside is finding that perfect product that:
- Does not have that bottled tan smell
- Does not give that fake orange color
- And, does not streak!
Loreal Sublime Bronze Spray
The bronzing spray, combined with my all-time favorite bronzer by Guerlain, and I am glowing!... even despite the lack of sun!

The only thing worse than v necks on guys, is v necks on overweight guys. And whats worse than that? V neck's AND skinny jeans on overweight guys. Like bikini's and spandex are for women, the skinny jean is for men. Like I tell the ladies- its a privilege, not a right!

3. White shoes
Although the rules of fashion clearly state that white shoes after Memorial Day are allowed, I think that it would be irresponsible of me to say that without adding a few stipulations.
1. Don't wear a closed toe pump. Instead opt for a peep toe heel that also shows off your manicured toes (I'm a fan of OPI in "Collins Ave")
2. If you have large feet, stay away from solid white shoes. The same rules that apply for wearing white clothes (remember, its not a very slimming color) also apply to your feet. Your solid white heels can make your feet look like a boat! I suggest choosing a silver heel or a patterned white heel for a more casual look.
