suit up!

suit up!


for reasons unknown to me, i am a swimsuit fanatic. perhaps it is due to being born in early august, but my entire life i’ve collected swimsuits like people collect basic sweaters or sensible shoes. my parents often tell the story of when i was 4 years old and in the middle of a snowstorm as they were shoveling out the driveway, i ran outside wearing only an orange bikini. i still remember that bikini to this day, it had a halter top with long strings that tied at the back of the neck and it was 70’s tupperware orange. i looked for any opportunity to put it on, including sneaking it on at bath time or while my parents were out shoveling snow, apparently. every year when swimsuit season comes i have to sit on my hands to keep from buying yet another swimsuit. i usually fail and end up with at least one new swimsuit per year. here are a dozen that i am loving this year.

  1. h&m just put out this adorable white striped one piece ($29), just make sure to size way the eff up.
  2. i am a maje sucker for all things nautical, especially swimsuits, and these little sailor shorts ($38) are too cute with this red & white polka dot top that ties in the back ($44).
  3. speaking of too cute nautical swimsuits this modcloth one piece is a killer ($79).
  4. really into the high neck swimsuit thing that is happening right now, this black & white anthro one even looks like it has boob support ($195).
  5. this j.crew high neck one piece has the cutest little neck bow, but looks like it has no boob support so if you’re tiny on top or never had a baby, get into it ($98).
  6. marysia swimsuits are everywhere this year, i super dig their scallop hem suits like this palm springs top ($150) & high waist bottoms ($148).
  7. this baserange fire red suit with boy shorts and t-shirt top is way cool ($160).
  8. the lisa marie fernandez one shoulder swimsuit now comes in white polka dot ($480). swoony swoon swoon. also really looks like it would hold all the mom giggly-ness in place, which is worth dat $$$.
  9. this maryam nassir zadeh tie front one piece holds really nothing in place but dang she fine ($288).
  10. same with this crazy stupid adorable hunza g x pandora sykes frill bikini ($155). one size fits a select few.
  11. old navy has this black ruffled one shoulder one piece ($39). it’s the clear choice for moms who can’t afford lisa marie fernandez but still want to look chic while reaping the benefits of interior gripper tape and the magical slimming properties of the color black.
  12. lastly from the queen of ruffles johanna ortiz is this insanely beautiful gorgeous work of art moon light bikini top ($355) and high waist ruched bottoms ($150).
