Summer Swimmies

Contrary to how it may appear that I have never worn a swim suit since my skin is roughly the color of a crisp white bed sheet, I have! Gotta pile on that SPF, but it happens. And with the weather finally warming up, I’m just itching to soak up a little sun (and this year I’ll have a yard in which to soak it up!). So, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite looks this year.

I may not have jumped on the adorable high-waisted bandwagon last year—I admit I’m still a little wary of what these tan lines may look like—but I ordered the bottom half of Look Three to pair with a navy and white polka-dot bandeau I picked up at the GAP. I just received them this week and so far my husband’s review is that he doesn’t understand them. He made a point to say that it’s not like he doesn’t like them, he just doesn’t get it. He followed this with saying that I look like I’m from Mad Men. How that would not be a compliment is beyond me. So, I suppose only summer will tell. Any thoughts on high waisted bikini bottoms?

Outfit: Cool, Breezy and Colorful

The summer heat has finally hit. Which means, anything reminiscent of sleeves or form-fittedness on any day that I may spend more than 15 minutes outside is out. Cool and breezy is in.

This light dress epitomizes breezy-ness. The fabric is so pretty and flowy.

The vibrant orange-y red is perfectly complimented by teal accents. The green tinge in the blue creates near complimentary colors that play off of each other so well.

This fun belt is an old piece of my mom’s and the shoes are the perfect item to boost the dressy factor.
