Whether you’re on team one-piece or two, one thing is for certain swimsuit season has arrived. So pick a suit any suit and go enjoy the beach, lake, or pool. This week, I gathered a few swimsuits for my beach getaway in Cancún, Mexico. It’s been a little slice of heaven this week with blue skies and even bluer ocean and a white sandy beach to dip my toes into. What’s in my beach bag? I’m spilling the beans today with a little help from my favorite retailer Nordstrom which makes one-stop shopping a breeze. Here are 3 women’s bathing suits for 2022 that I’m loving.
First things first, sunscreen is a must when I head outdoors, and Goop PLAY is a favorite of mine for long-wearing protection and reef-safe ingredients. But let’s not forget our lips need protection too. Enter fresh Sugar Lip Balm with SPF 15 that keeps my lips hydrated. And while we’re talking about protection from the sun, let’s not forget the importance a hat plays in keeping our face shielded from the harmful UV rays. It’s a non-negotiable in my book, as well as a pair of sunglasses that shields my baby blues from the sun.
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.
I’m loving this Grecian-style two-piece from Norma Kamali. It’s definitely made for a day at the pool sipping piña coladas but isn’t that what vacay is for? White leather sandals from Tory Burch are the perfect addition, as well as all of my sun accessories.
If you want to put a little FUN into your swimwear, then look no further than Trina Turk. Her swimsuit prints are always colorful and pack a punch. This one-piece is a year old, but I loved this one or this one.
A few of my favorite things about Nordstrom:

With the country opening up, many of us—hopefully—will be able to celebrate special occasions in person. And Spring and Summer are full of them: from Easter to Mother’s Day to weddings to graduations. There are so many opportunities to get together and share a little love and joy—and much needed too! As the weather warms up (for some of us), we’ve been thinking about Spring a lot over here on the blog. We’re continuing on with our theme this week: budget-friendly Spring shopping.
Today’s spring dress is from Scoop (available at Walmart), and it’s available in 3 colors. (I’m also loving the pink.) I’ve styled it with a pair of cap-toe pumps (similar here and here). The cap-toe pump has been a favorite of mine this year. So much so that I featured it on one of my real vs. deal segments reprinted below:
The cap-toe slingback might not need any introduction due to its iconic status. Coco Chanel introduced this beauty in 1957 and nicknamed it “the height of elegance.” This shoe ticks all the classic boxes and is a cult favorite due to its neutral color scheme – black toe and nude body. The heel is not too high nor too low and looks fantastic with skirts, dresses, pants, or blue jeans.
Walmart carries the Easy Spirit cap-toe pump that’s easy on your budget. Hands down the best dupe are the Exclusive Baton Heel available at TuckerNuck that looks almost identical to the Chanel slingback. Karen White pointy toe slingback is elegant and sophisticated thanks to a v-shape opening. And the Vaneli Aliz slingback is a perennial favorite available at Nordstrom.
I’m loving this dress because it would work for just about any special occasion I can think of this year. My accessories are subtle but compliment the outfit nicely. I’m featuring a DeMellier handbag (similars here and here) and a silver bracelet and hoops. Understated but elegant.
We’re in the Spring transition phase over here at SAACA. Yesterday we featured a budget-friendly skirt from Scoop that you can dress up or down by swapping out just your accessories. Make sure to check it out.
