This time of year is hard because I'm like so ready for summer to be here but we're stuck in that half amazing weather, half gross weather season. After a friend mentioned looking for suggestions for cute swimsuits, it got me window shopping for a new suit. I only wear a swim suit like once a year, but that doesn't keep me from wanting to buy all the swimsuits. This polka dot bikini was seriously probably the best swimsuit buy I ever made. I thought I lost the top last year and thought about buying another, but luckily I found it hiding in the Winne. Phew! I should probably buy another one just as a back-up, that's how much I love it. I was going to try to pick a favorite suit from this list, but I just like them all for so many different reasons. One that I did feel like needed to be on my body immediately, though, is the velvet leopard print one. Also, that hat.
I feel like most bikini/swimsuit posts tend to reference the simultaneous feeling that it's also time to start working out more to achieve a "beach body." I think this is probably my favorite way to get a beach body. Also, if you're wondering how to pick a swimsuit for your shape, this is a great guide.
For a long time it seemed like two-piece suits reigned when it came to finding a cute swimsuit, but I think the one-piece has experience a resurgence these last few years. There are just so many stylish, well designed options. I'd even take the wacky tan lines to rock that crocheted suit. I've wanted a crocheted swimsuit for years, but haven't found the perfect one yet. That one is definitely on my radar, but I think I'd probably prefer the coverage of the other three. That leopard suit, man, it speaks to me. It probably doesn't help that I've wanted to be Micheline since I was like 16. That gal is like hot sex on a stick, man. Pin up inspiration for days.
It's supposed to get sunny today and then be in the 70's all week, so maybe I'll get inspired to snag a new suit for the summer! It'll also be a great time to test out my homemade sunscreen, so maybe by the end up next week I'll have results to share!
