Do you realize during the past four months we have completely skipped over our spring wardrobes? We’ve gone from heavy winter wear to lightweight summer outfits? After weeks of looking “schlumpy,” the floodgates are beginning to open. This poses the question: What are we going to wear now?

Swimsuitsforall.com colorful swimdress.

Oh, go ahead–do it!
