Hi friends! I've missed you and hope you all are doing well! Thank you to the Dishy Decorator for letting me do a guest post on her blog, this will be fun!
So bathing suit season has arrived and for many of us, the thought of going shopping for a new suit sounds like evil torture. I hear you, I understand and I have been there before. Who wants to try a suit on when we are still white from winter, brainwashed to hate our bodies, and have to do the "try on" under horrible fluorescent lighting? Normally I would hate this process and send myself into a shame attack for even thinking about a suit, but this year I am so just DONE with the self hate. You may have guessed it, I have been reading "So Long Insecurity" by Beth Moore. If you are dreading shopping for bathing suits I highly recommend reading SLI.
Alright! Lets gets started! I am going to be going on a quick weekend vacay next weekend so I absolutely must purchase some new suits. Like the Dishy Decorator, I also enjoy shopping high to low. Some of my best fashion finds have occurred on the cheap.Items in this set:
Antibes bikini briefs, $92 Antibes bikini top, $90 Mystique T-Strap Sandals with Gems in Gold or Silver @ Singer22.com
Gucci Logo Temple Oversized Square Sunglasses, $275 Helen Kaminski Frida Sun Hat, $110
This first set is of course absolutely adorable in my opinion, well I did put the items together, but I really like all of these pieces for laying out on vacation. Once I put this set together I knew that I could get very similar items for much less.
Poolside Pink, Set II by Mtb2010 on Polyvore.com
Items in this set:
O-Ring Halter Top, $13 Drawstring Bikini Bottom, $12 Mossimo Leonor Knotted Flip Flops - Pink Gold, $13 Amazon.com: Coolibar UPF 50+ Women's Packable Wide Brim Sun Hat:..., $30 temple design sunglasses, $4.80
This set is very similar, but costs much less. Obviously I will be ordering these items instead!
Bikini's aren't what everyone wants to wear and I get that. One piece and tankini suits are having a huge revival and you can find them at many different price points.
This adorable shirred one piece is from Juicy Couture for $160.
Very similar suit, but can be found at Target for $29.73.
Another great suit from Juicy Couture, for $173.00
Mossimo from Target also created this great one piece for $28.00.
Now if tankinis are more your style, they are available at all different price points also.
This Spanx tankini is fun and feminine, the top is $128.00 and the bottom is $78.00.
Merona from Target brought us this great set for the new season. Each piece is $18.00 and the top looks to have good support, which is CRUCIAL!
My best advice that I can give for bathing suit shopping is to use self tanner or get a spray tan before going suit shopping. I know for myself that the warm glow from a sunless tanner always perks me up when shopping. Also, be kind to yourself. I'm not kidding friends, BE KIND. I hope these suggestions help you to find a fun new suit for this season. Always remember to wear your sunscreen and a hat too!
I will be launching a new blog soon and look forward to sharing it with you all! Have a fabulous day!
