summer swimsuit shopping

After a couple hectic weeks, what better way to calm your nerves than to go swimsuit shopping?

As horrific as it usually is, I actually had great luck finding two new swimsuits for the upcoming summer pool season. I haven’t updated my swimwear in a few years (because no, stripping down to my skivvies in mid-March and April and analyzing every inch of pale-yellow skin is not my idea of a fun weekend activity!). Instead of laying on the couch eating cupcakes on Sunday, I decided to treat myself to a painless swimsuit shopping experience at Victoria’s Secret. My outcome was wonderful: four bathing suits in, two bathing suits out, no tears down my face or bad thoughts in my mind. Here’s what I’ll be rockin’ by my pool — and hopefully at a beach! — this summer. Join me?

Want to rock this suit too? Check it out online — it’s available in a bunch of different colors and prints so you can mix and match.

I absolutely love the detailing on this swimsuit. From the bedazzled triangle top to the rouched backside (check it out online to get an alternate view), this suit is sure to be a head-turner this summer.

Have you gone swimsuit shopping yet for the upcoming pool and beach season? What colors and styles are you eyeing? More importantly, where are you going this summer, and can I come with you? :)

    I love the swimsuit in “sunset glow” as well and I was wondering if you have it? It looks like it’s the same color as their “coral” and I’m trying to figure out if it’s close enough so I can get a top in sunset glow and a bottom in coral…

      Hey Alicia!

      I bet we have the same swimsuit…I didn’t actually look at the official VS name on the suit. I just call it coral (a little more orange than coral, but same family!) because it’s my of-the-season fave color.

      How do you like your suit?
