Seven Fun Swimsuits

Growing up in the Midwest, I never put much consideration into swimsuit shopping.  I’d get one each summer at Target when I was younger and at Victoria’s Secret later on, not even thinking to look elsewhere.  Trying on swimsuits after a Michigan winter in which I consumed infinite Flipz white fudge pretzels while studying for midterms just didn’t seem like fun, I guess.

While the idea for this post came during my commute last week when when I somehow forgot I will not, in fact, be getting the summer off (and haven’t for three years), I put it together anyway for some inspiration to shop around a little more this season.  Here are seven fun suits I came across!

Column 1: Red, White, & BlueWrap Bikini | Indian Summer

Column 2: Monokini | Rashguard

Column 3:  Gingham |  Ballerina

I first saw the cream, pink, and black Ballerina one-piece on Cup of Jo and had to share it here – I might buy it for swimming laps this summer.  Would you wear any of these?  Where do you usually buy swimwear (help me out! 🙂 )?







Layers for Spring

Happy (almost) Easter!  Are you celebrating this weekend?  I’m driving to my parents’ house in Michigan tomorrow, then we’re getting together with some family for lunch on Sunday.  No church for us, just an excuse to eat chocolate.

I decided recently that I needed some new spring clothes (I’ve decided this several times as the weather has warmed up) and also that I have way too many plain cardigans taking up space in my closet, so I spent some time browsing online for new sweaters and light jackets.  Check out my favorites below – you can throw them on with jeans, a t-shirt, and a cool pair of shoes and call it a day!

Midi Rain Parka | Coat with Contrast Collar | Sweater Coat

Poncho | Drape Front Jacket | Cape

Collarless Coat | Quilted Vest | Long Vest

Have a great weekend 🙂

Linking up with Erin and Katie as always!
