As I mentioned before, I'm going up to Parksville this weekend -- so excited!
Parksville is a little town up island where the swimming is absolutely amazing. It is the warmest waters north of California! It is extremely sandy, and the heat of the sand warms the super shallow water to make it toasty warm. Last year was my first time going up there, and I was so amazed! I had never swam in the ocean before (the waters of the Pacific Ocean are ice water all year round here) so I was delighted to spend the day floating along sand drifts and playing in the water. I decided to give this week's Dolled up a nautical, beachy theme. I wish I had a cute outfit like this for this weekend, but I did get two adorable tankinis, so I feel pretty set to soak up some sun!
