Cellulite and Tan Lines

So I quite enjoy the season of summer, for alot of reasons. One no longer has to wear pants, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, or shoes that conceal pretty painted toes. But at the same time, summer brings out some crazy attire and a lot of skin that should be kept hidden.

My least fav part of summer, is wanting to enjoy a nice afternoon by the pool, but then you have to stare at this all day:

I tell you what, I am NOT a FAN!

Case in point. We were in Vegas this last weekend enjoying the warm sun and some time to relax. Now I am a people watcher, and Vegas is the perfect place to do just that. We stayed at a hotel to the south of the strip that is a pretty decent hotel for the price we paid in Vegas. As soon as we got there, we checked in and decided to hit the pool. It was busy, but not too bad for a weekend.
As we were getting settled on our chairs at the pool I took an interst in the lady across the way from me. She looked to be in her late 50s possibly eary 60s. Her hair was dyed a dark brown color and she was constantly applying lipstick and checking to make sure her makeup looked ok. As I looked more closely I saw that she had the straps of her swimsuit pulled off her shoulders and tucked under her arms to avoid getting any lines. Now dont get me wrong, I dont like lines either, but from the looks of it, this was not this woman's first trip to the pool this season. Her skin was a dark brown and looked as if it would feel like leather. Between that and the fact that she had a swimsuit on that was two sizes two small made me want to loose my lunch. And she was not the only one, it just kept getting better.

Now I am not saying that I have the perfect body but I am one that is pretty self conscious about that I look like in a bathing suit. But to each their own I guess.
Oh summer, you bring so many intersting things
