what’s better on a hot summer day than a dip in the pool? some of us have an allergic reaction to summer swimsuits, but who wants to miss a day spent by the ocean, lake, or pool? honestly, you don’t need a beach bod to lounge poolside. all you need is a cute swimsuit! today, we’re stepping into summer with summer swimsuits.
there are so many choices these days when it comes to summer swimsuits. one-piece, bikini, or tankini. where to start?
La Blanca has been a favorite swim brand of mine for years. this black one-shoulder suit didn’t disappoint! it’s lined with molded cups, flattering ruched shirring, and built-in tummy control. the swimsuit also comes in indigo. since we’re talking swimwear, let’s not forget to add a slouchy hooded coverup which is a must-have item to swish through any hotel lobby. it’s from La Blanca and comes in black or blue and could easily pull double duty as a light and airy tunic.
my mother loved hats and was a big fan of Eric Javits. when i scrolled by this fedora available in black, brown, or white and made from the brand’s patented Squishee® straw, i knew it would land in my cart. hats can be tricky to travel with but not this one! you can crush and smush the hat into a suitcase or beach bag without worrying it won’t spring back to life. now that’s my kind of hat! it’s on the pricey side, so check out these cute alternatives here or here.
sunglasses are a must-have if you’re spending time outside, what with all of the UV light that’s hard on our skin and eyes. one of my favorite sunglass designers is Prada, so i couldn’t resist adding these white frames into my sunglasses rotation. lower price alternatives can be found here and here.
a few of my favorite things about Nordstrom.
