Take Off That Polka Dot Bikini, Girrrrrl

Dear E,

School’s almost out, and summer is almost here!!! You know what that means!! Days on the beach, making sandcastles, boogieboarding, going to the swimming pool basically every day, slip’n slides, snow cones, lifeguarding and basically anything involving water and cooling yourself off.

AKA, swimsuit time.

First off, we’ve got the trusty one piece swimsuit. Contrary to popular belief, the one piece does not have to be prude, boring, or grandma-inspired. Here are some of my favorite one pieces.

There’s the sporty look. Cut outs modernize the little black one piece.

The classy one shoulder in a bold color.

I love love love this one. It’s vintage lingerie inspired and I bet it makes your waist look teeny tiny.

image

This one is for the fearless of you out there with killer bodies, trying to make a statement. It says, hello, I am here.

image

This is a simpler version of the previous swimsuit. It has the modern cutouts but its much more sophisticated and subtle.

I love these two. They’re very unique and would be so much fun to splash around in.

I’m not going to lie, I’m not really a fan of the tankini. I think you gotta either go for the bikini or go for the one piece. I think it’s kind of like how I hate kitten heels. Go big or go home!

So now for the bikinis–

image

This one is very girly and cute!

This one is boho and i like the extended top!

image

I like this simple black number that’s spiced up with zippers and a high waist.

image

I love the simplicity of this one! The cute little flowers and the pale blue color are adorable.

image

You really can’t go wrong with polka dots.

I’m also really inspired by vintage swimwear. I love love love it.

There are SOOOOOO many swimsuit options out there!  I just picked a few of my favorites. Places I recommend for buying swimsuits

asos.com

nastygal.com

modcloth.com

threadsence.com

polyvore.com (Just type swimsuits or bikinis into their product search, so many options!)

If you want really simple and basic swimsuits I recommend checking out F21, H&M or Target!

If you want more unique pieces, you’ll have to look a little harder, but I promise, your perfect swimsuit is out there!

Good luck finding your perfect suit!

Sunshine and sparkles,

P

Flashin’ Fashion: Stop in the Name of Love

Hey lovelies!

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week!

I love this dress because of all of the crazy stuff it has going on. Theres a plunging neckline, a deep V in the back, an asymmetrical hemline, and it’s layers of sheer material. On top of that it’s polka dots. Who DOESN’T love polka dots?!? I edged up the cuteness a bit with zippered booties. I made sure to wear spandex too, otherwise it would’ve been risque when I started to get twirly.

Dress: F21

Shoes: Vera Wang

Hey guys! So the next few fashion posts are going to be flashbacks from over the summer when E and I were running wild and being all fashionable. E took all the pictures. I have initiation for my sorority tonight and we’re supposed to be wearing white dresses. Makes me wish I had this cute little lace number.

I paired the white dress with plain cream open-toed pumps and gave the outfit a little character with the accessories. I wore big turquoise and gold earrings and a turquoise and gold slave bracelet.

Dress: Free People (old)

Shoes: Steve Madden

Earrings: World Market

Slave Bracelet: random market in India

Peace and Love,

P
