For the 4th of July we go up to New Hampshire to Kev’s familys cottage. This year our friends Erin, Mike, Carrie and Jon are coming with us. I am super excited. Plus 2 weeks later Erin, Mike, Me, Kev and our other 2 friends are going to the Outer Banks, NC for a week. We rented a house right on the beach. Whoo Hoooo. Anyways, swimwear has been on my mind a lot lately. I feel like my taste are sort of changing- I feel more comfortable being a little more modest. It’s a little hard for me to be in a swimsuit all day and not feel a little self conscience. I have been looking a lot at one pieces lately- I love all the retro styles out there that are super flattering and super cute. This would be my ideal beach wear, now the swimsuits are super expensive but a girl can dream can’t she? I have found much more reasonable ones at Macys, Modcloth, TJ Max- you just need to look.
Swimwear: Norma Kamalico $350
Hat: Urban Outfitters $28
Sunglasses: Fred Flare $11
Studded Flip Flops: Target $12.99
Sunscreen: Anywhere- So Important!!! I am a huge advocate for sunscreen!!!
ooh, love it all, I might have to pick up that hat!! 🙂
Holy Cow! that red suit is amazing! I wish I had $350 to drop on a bathing suit. Sometimes TJmaxx has some very retro Juicy Couture one pieces for pretty cheap. I’ve been seeing them around lately.
If your willing to spend a few extra bucks for some great sun tan lotion go for the stuff Aveeno is now putting out. Having to apply it several times a day can usually get pretty heavy but this stuff is pretty great. I also would like to get my hands on a vintage suit.. they are so classy!
I just got a Jantzen swim suit from Dillards that is literally identical to that black one (with a detachable swim strap) for $100. Not that $100 is cheap, but it’s way more affordable and totally worth it. I LOVE it. Check out their website.
I Love the bathing suits. I’ve always thought about getting one but never did. They look great but then you may end up with a weird tan. I donâ€™t want nice tanned legs and arms and then a white stomach (lol). Or those other one suit styles with all the straps, I want a functional and nice bathing suit not something that will leave me looking like a zebra.
But hey if you do get it or something like it let me know how the tanning goes for you, I just may finally get one.
