When someone asks you the date today, take a deep breath: Yes, it's already August, and it feels like summer flashed before your eyes. But instead of dwelling on all the missed sun-and-swim opportunities, rally the troops and book some beach time for every (or at least one) weekend between now and Labor Day.
And honestly, it may be a good thing that you waited until the very last minute to upgrade your seasonal suit. Now, as you plan for one last beachside hurrah, you can take advantage of the mid-summer sales to pick up brand-spanking-new swim gear that's as hot as the sand bar. Pat yourself on your procrastinating back and check out the sweet discounted suits ahead. Catch you poolside.
