* Tan Lines : Love *


I LOVE tan lines. I can’t be sure sure but I think it has something to do with my first Barbie …who just so happened to be from Malibu, and very tan . . .


While I’m not a fan of them peeping out and ruining the look & line of an outfit, when completely undressed, I think it’s 100% sexy . . .


. . . and spotlights the parts that make a woman’s body different from a man’s . . .

tan lines

. . . which I think men like too 😉


And really, tan lines just remind me of the warm glorious freedom that Summer brings
. . . and I love Summer!

    Not really a fan of them… probaly ’cause here in Brazil it’s more different not to have them, and also ’cause I’m kinda pale, I get burned 🙁

    You look stunning, though!

    i think tan lines as sexy as well….i only had them 2 times in the past 3 months and now summer is over…..so sad!! 🙁 i wish summer in MN lasted more like 6 months and the other 6 months were fall.

    hope you are having a great weekend girly!!

    Maegan, I’m in love with your blog. I live in Spain but I’m from Brazil, and I have to tell you that there they love it, the boys even more! here they don’t, so topless is all that girls do. xoxo

    I never thought of tan lines in that way.
    They do look pretty good in these photos.

    i do agree that tan lines really makes a girl more healthier and sexy looking. but ironically, i’m not looking forward to tanning myself.

    I like them just so you can see how much you’ve tanned!

    I absolutely love tan lines too! I thought I was the only one 🙂 And now I’m off to my pool to work on my tan lines! I am really going to miss summer 🙁

    Haha, I get the most severe tan lines. I tan very easily and spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer (if I can), and my guy likes to tease me and say he can’t tell when I’m naked because it looks like I’m still wearing underpants. I think he likes it though 😉

    Mmmh I really like your “GLAMorous pleading” about this Brazilian Sensuality’s epitome !!! Just like a “next to the bare skin” natural painting . . .

    I’m not sure what these “tan lines” that you speak of are, as I wear SPF 240 everyday in an attempt to ward off burning and freckles.

    I HATE tan lines

    Mine don’t fade for 1.5 – 2 years.. and tanning totally ruins your skin LOL

    With that being said, those above photos are beautiful.

    What a great Barbie. The coolest one I ever had, had crimp-able hair. I miss my Conair crimper so much. Damn it!

    I looove them! I tan to get tan-lines (in the right places, and small enough).
    Might have to do with the fact that I’m a strawberry blond scandinavian who doesn’t really tan that much… tan lines are tan-tell-lines 🙂

    I love tan lines too…this summer I wopre spf 30 every single day…esp when out on the beach. and I’m happy to report that I am not pasty but rather nicely sun-kissed and bronzed…I had the unfortunate experience of getting sunburned to the point of having to stay in bed with fever when I was very young so I learned my lesson the hard way…
