Playsuits & Short Sets

I was on vacation last week, at the Jersey Shore. Now I'm back home and trying to get on my regular work schedule again. But I'm still thinking about the beach, and sand and sunshine, so it's hard to focus on getting work done.
I did a little crusin' on ebay this morning, looking for Summer dresses for myself, and I spotted a few cute playsuits and short sets, so I decided to feature them in a post, along with two of my own items currently for sale.
Enjoy, and check out the goodies.
