Time for endless weekends by the pool, beach, lake, river, basically any body of water I can get myself to!
I love swimming, I love nature, and I love the sun. I spend 100% of my weekends during summer in a swimsuit. Even if I am forced to spend my weekend doing something more productive, I make sure to have a swimsuit in my bag/car/under my clothes JUST in case I can make it to the beach for a late afternoon dip in the ocean.
Ahhhh…. the CA life. I will say, living in beautiful California has it’s upsides.
So while I’m getting ready for the endless amount of days in the water, I need to stock up on American made swimwear. So far, it’s been insanely easy to find swimsuits I like.
There are so many new unique styles! Like, I’m freaking impressed. Swimsuit designers are totally steppin’ up their game ya’ll.
So I decided to share a few of my fav styles with you, after all it would be completely evil of me not to! Get ready for some serious swimsuit OVERLOAD. No joke. I’ve provided a A TON of my favorites. I hope you have some time, and a few bucks in the bank because you’re not going to be able to resist these cuties. I definitely couldn’t (cue depression due to me EMPTIED bank account 🙁 ah! )
Not So Basic Basics:
Basic = plain, ordinary, solid color.
These bikinis may seem basic to the untrained eye. However if you look closer you will see that these “basics” have little details that make them stand out from the crowd!
And by strapless, I really mean not over the shoulders. Because as you can see, the Beach Riot Flower Power Bikini Top below has off the should straps. I love this look, it’s so unique, and I always feel super girly wearing anything without straps! You can also see the matching bottom HERE.
It kinda looks like you’re wearing nothing but your bra.. but oh screw it who cares! I’m pretty conservative so it’s hard for me to rock the bra top. I am always so worried someone is going to think I’m actually wearing a bra! LOL! But I know I’m probably alone in that weird fear. These tops below are sooo cute! I may have to just go for it and try it out this summer. If I do I’m def going for the Lolli Hello I Love You Top and matching Bottom below!
Okay so this is totally a thing again. I feel so 1920’s chic! I love this style, you have to feel confident if you’re going to try to pull it off. I promise it’s cute. I tried one on in a store a few months ago and wasn’t sure but I swear to everyone else it looks amazing! You can always email me a pic and I’ll tell you my honest opinion if you really want a second opinion 🙂
There is seriously a brand new overload of high waisted bikini bottoms HERE, and also see a few more below:
This look never gets old. I personally love it because you know for sure that nothing is going to randomly come popping out when you’re laying on your stomach tanning your back (all you ladies totally know what I’m talking about, isn’t that the worst?!) Anyway, I love this gorgeous white Made By Dawn Elizabeth Bikini Top and Bottom:
I LOVE the print on the Made By Dawn Petal Bikini Top and Bottom below. I think it’s because I haven’t seen anything like it, and so well done, on a bikini. You usually see tons of tropical prints, the one below is simple and so cute! Don’t get me wrong, I love tropic prints, see more styles below for examples.
The tank style bikini is another stylish options for the conservative type. Or, if you just don’t want to get sunburned every second you’re in the sun. Actually, this is super important. If you aren’t the type to wear sunscreen please by one of these tank top bikinis, protect your chest from wrinkles when you get older.
This style won’t seem to go away. It’s not my favorite to be honest. However I will say that at least come designers are starting to do it in a tasteful way. Check out the Nasty Gal Bora Bikini Bottom and the Tropez Top below. I think they look pretty cute!
I went a little crazy with the one pieces. You have no idea, there are so many more than you can imagine online! Check these out below, and if you still don’t find something that floats your boat look HERE.
