Tanned under 2 hrs poolside – that’s me! This dress serves as an easy pool cover up and for the beach if we go. My hair was curly for about 3 hrs because it had been twisted up while I swam. I love this sun hat so much, from Forever 21 last Summer and look, I’m wearing flip flops!The before photo of how ‘pale’ I was 😉 My swimsuit is Speedo that I bought years ago and never got to wear until now. I think it’s safe and true to say that you will be hard pressed to find an Oriental woman who actively wants to get tanned. It’s just not something that’s viewed as desirable or necessary no matter what Coco Chanel did. Fortunately, my family’s always been very laid back about it but I know others who go to extraordinary lengths to avoid catching any of the sun’s rays wherever they are. The first and last time I got really, really brown was when I was 15 on the Côte D’Azur where we were on the beach at Cannes and in the sea all the time so it was pretty much unavoidable. Since then of course I take reasonable precaution whenever in the sun and I always, always wear a total sunblock or the highest factor on my face….plus sunglasses….plus hat….in the shade 🙂
