Swimwear Selection

Happy Monday, folks!

Let’s all close our eyes and pretend that we are on a beach listening to the waves as we sink our toes into the sand instead of sitting at our desks sucking up coffee and wondering how its already September…

This summer I purchased two new swimsuits to replace the ones I have had for many years. When you end up with sheer spots around your derriere unintentionally you know its time to for a change-up!

I shopped early into the season and found two suits that fit my dual beach lifestyle.

The first is this high waist bikini by GabiFresh. I have always wanted to rock a bikini but never found one that hit my curves in all the right spots, until GabiFresh entered my world. I have been following Gabi for a few years and was ecstatic when she launched a swim line through Swimsuitsforall.

Iridescence underwire.

I can’t help but instantly feel sexy and confident in this two piece and its perfect for a girls beach day where my itinerary includes: basking in the sun, reading Marie Claire, and taking a”dip” in the ocean to cool down (on repeat).

My second find is a “Fit for You” one-piece swimsuit by Croft & Barrow. I purchased it at Kohl’s and love the  geometric watercolor print.

Instant slimdown!

Instant tummy slim down!

It gives the full coverage I am looking for while highlighting my hour-glass figure and decolletage. I wear this suit for family beach outings that are full of: hunting for hermit crabs, building sand castles mounds, playing “shark” in the water, and tossing the football around.

Yesterday’s excursion was a family affair so I opted for my one piece. Here is a peek at the suit on me:

So comfy!

Ignore the bed-head!

It breaks my heart to put these two summer staples away for the season. Maybe I can convince Gear that we need to escape the New England winter with a trip to the tropics? 😉
