sunblock required.

today was spent with some of my favorite girls on the planet.  there wasn't a cloud in sight so we threw our bikinis on, packed a few light reads and headed up to one of the pools at big cedar {mentioned here}.  i wore my favorite highlighter shorts {via splendid} and was determined to get some color on this pasty winter body.

unfortunately the wind had another idea!  we tried {and tried} to fight the obvious goosebumps, but alas the wind prevailed leaving us not even the slightest shade darker. . . and ready for a hot bubble bath!

i have a few things coming up in the near future and would love a sun-kissed glow.  any pointers for spray tanning and/or self tanners?
