Swimsuit Season

There are so many cute swimsuits this year, it makes me almost excited in anticipation for summer. (I’m still dreading the inevitable air conditioning problems and high energy bills, of course). I haven’t bought a new bathing suit in at least four years, so this year I treated myself to the Tavik Sophia top in black (from Free People). It’s really cute & versatile, although I’m kind of wishing I’d snagged it in blue or pink.

Right now I’m just pairing it with some plain tie-side bikini bottoms that I’ve had for a while, but I’m dreaming of the following swimsuit bottoms to match it with:

Bikini bottoms
From left to right: Undrest “Rio” caged 3-strap bikini, Undrest “Dear Marlene” pink bikini briefs, Glamour Kills galaxy bikini bottoms

Although I generally buy two-piece bathing suits, there are a few incredible one-pieces that I’m lusting after. I am particularly in love with the Wildfox “Marilyn”, which I’m sure would also look so cute as a top under a pair of cut-offs. I’m trying to fit it into my budget:

Mara Hoffman beaded swimsuit (on sale at Anthropologie), Wildfox Marilyn swimsuit, Tavik “El Diablo” one piece

Check out how Rachel L wore the Marilyn suit out on Venice Beach. So amazing! I need this swimsuit in my life, now.

    I love the swim top on you! I was actually looking at it for myself; I wish they had a larger variety of sizes because that one wouldn’t fit me (at least not in a flattering way).

    I really love the high waisted pink one – a bit of a man repeller but cute nevertheless.

    Cute blog and style! I found you while googling waterfall braid tutorials and your hair pictures were the prettiest!

    I’m a sporty one piece gal myself, but, that galaxy bottom is to-die-for!

    Unquestionably believe that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
