CH, CH, CHH, CHERRY BOMB!

We're less than a week away from Memorial day and in my mind that's the beginning of Summer! I know it's not the official calendar date but family and friends usually get together on this weekend for activities that are synonymous with Summer. Grills are being dusted off right now and many are prepping for a weekend BBQ or picnic. Some may even venture to the beach if the weather permits (fingers crossed).

It's also that time of year where Cherries (one of my favorite American fruits) starts appearing on fruit stands and in supermarkets. If you're wondering why I call it an American fruit it's because they're different from the cherries we have in Guyana. The first time I tasted one was almost 11 years ago when I first moved to the US. We were at a family BBQ for Memorial day, I took one bite and couldn't get enough. It's one of the things I look forward to when Summer rolls around in NYC. 

So as we approach the season, Mildred decided it would be fitting to share her cherry pinup beach look for the weekend. We're hoping the weather permits our first beach day of the season so we can wear this cute retro swimsuit again. 

My #RetroAlterEgo aka Mildred practicing her pinup pose while doing beach aerobics.

She's rocking a retro-style halter swimsuit in mint green and cherry print, retro-style chiffon hair scarf, red cat-eye sunglasses, mint green jelly shoes and a vintage basket purse embroidered with cherries in raffia.

A button front skirt over a retro-swimsuit works as the perfect coverup and also mimics the style of vintage-style beach playsuits. I have one and can't wait to share with you!
