Bathing suits

Bathing SuitDon’t get me started, or, let’s get me started!! Ok, I love water, I’m using the word LOVE here, If you bring me swimming you will see a huge grin grow on my face and when you, and everybody else, thinks its time to call it and is shivering under towels, I can not for the life of me understand what you are talking about and is happily splashing around trying to do a handstand on the bottom of the lake/sea/pool.

So, when I go bathing suit shopping, I don’t want one for sexy sunbathing, I hate direct sunlight, that would fall off important bits if I attempted a dive. And I don’t want a sporty one that resists chlorine and covers way to many important bits. I want a colourful, happy, bathing suit for my body type that is more cute than sexy and lets me get in contact with the water I love more than the sporty ones does. And no I don’t want one with a skirt attached, or bits cut off, and please could we skip the cup sizes! How about throwing in some pineapples or lobsters, that would be fun! Should this be so very hard, apparently so!!! My choices are “black bathing suit with slimming effect and ruffles to hide your tummy, because you have to be ashamed of that thing right” or “extremely skimpy bikini, made for lying very still, turning over to grill you back is ok, by a pool, with very fancy pattern in fun colors” . Needless to say, I’m a bit frustrated with the bathing suit shopping.

The thing is, it should be oodles of fun designing a bathing suit. You have lots of fabric on the front to play with colors and patterns, and then you have the back where you can go nuts making fancy strap contraptions! So where are these kinds of bathing suits. Yes I did find that mermaid one that I showed in a previous post, that thing was gorgeous and so much fun, and also in the states. I’m in Sweden I don’t want to order a suit, have it not fit, considering sending it back, which would probably cost more than the suit itself, that would hurt too much.

Now that I am done ranting, but not bathing suite shopping, have a collage of suits I for one reason or another can not have.

Oh, and this is the suit I currently have, which I love. But it’s getting a bit faded and damaged.

Tudor Castle

MAVS9694Tjolöholms slott (castle) visit with bonus Jane Austen costume exhibition. This is a Tudor inspired castle built in the early 1900, heavily influenced by the arts and crafts movement.

I loved the tour of the castle, and to be able to picture the people, ladies wafting around in flowy dresses and men in handsome suits.  Those who come for the Jane Austen exhibition might be a bit disappointed, there is costumes from the films that BBC did in the nineties, my favourites, that actors such as Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant and Judy Dench wore, including the “pond shirt”, but it’s mostly about the castle and its inhabitants.

There is also beautiful grounds to walk around in, a beach, and a lovely suitably overpriced gift shop, with “Morris” mugs that you have to bring back home. We had a wonderful time, and even though guided tours can be a bit hard for an aspie like me, it went surprisingly well, no panic attacks just exhaustion afterwords.

I really recommend  this outing if you want to se the castle, but its a bit steep to pay 150 kr for a few film costumes.

Made for me

Favourite Clothing Brand.pngThe brand Holly&Whyte from Lindex that I talked about earlier today on Instagram, seems to have started making clothes just for me, they fit my body type, and that’s unusual, and are totally gorgeous.

The style, if I am to try to describe it, is like they have taken the classic seaside “I look like I own a boat” style, with lots of stripes and three-quarter length sleeves, thrown in just a little bit of “I look like I own a horse”, with some fancy buttoned jackets, and then gone totally bananas and changed the colors dramatically! There are lots of deep orange with the navy, dark reds and startlingly bright greens. To sum it up. Gorgeous and made just for me.
