My Favorite, Swimsuits

Some people have a thing for shoes, some a thing for purses, but for me it’s always been swimsuits. I’m not quite sure why – I think maybe it’s the swimmer in me, but who really knows. I grew up in Virginia and now live in Chicago so it’s not like there is a large need, but ask me the number one thing I like to scope out and it’s swimsuits.

Once I laid eyes on this Beach Riot one piece, it was game over! I love the vibrant color and floral pattern, plus the cutout is unique and flattering. I’m very much into the one piece scene, especially when it has something special to offer. I love a cute cutout, a fun open back, a wrap front, etc. For me, a one piece is the equivalent of building bunkbeds in Step Brothers – it provides so much room for activities 🙂

I also love me a high waisted bikini because, for me, it covers and shows the right things. You can be a stylish and classy lady.


Picking out swimsuits should be fun! Mostly because that means it’s almost spring/summer or you’re planning a vacation. At times, I fall into the trap of not appreciating my body the way I should when picking out swimsuits, which is why I always lean towards what suits (pun intended) me. There are so many cute styles out there, but some of them I just know I’m not going to be comfortable in. I always try to pick something that shows off what I love about my body (i.e. an open back or a high neck to accentuate the collarbone/shoulders), but won’t lead me to be self-conscious or overly critical of myself. Sometimes I just have to remind myself of all the things my body has been (and will be) capable of to bring me back into the right mindset.

Everyone should have a swimsuit that they love and that makes them feel good about themselves. I’ve tagged a few of my current favorites down below! Here’s to what I’m hoping will be the first of many swimsuit posts!

    THIS! I will forever and always go to you for all things swimwear. Come the day when we’re sagging all over I’ll still be rocking the hottest suits in town (with you in cali), per your wisdom.

    Love it! Two things. 1. Love it that you say you can be a stylish & classy lady, because you are such an example of that. And 2. Why do I like the most expensive suit you recommended 😩 Haha
