Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot again with Stylewatch Magazine for their upcoming bathing suit issue. On a very snowy January afternoon, I flipped through racks of bathing suits of every type and color to pick out a few options for the shoot. There’s something about bathing suit shopping that makes my palms start to sweat. I’d just rather not, thank you. However, I had the BEST time trying on a bunch of swimsuits and found more options than I imagined I would. I think I ended up with six “top” picks. SIX. When does that ever happen when you’re in a store?!
Despite the snow falling outside (seriously, it was like being in a snowglobe), I felt like I should be packing a bag and heading somewhere tropical. Luckily, I have two warm trips planned for March. Woo, woo! First up, I’m going to Bermuda next weekend with my fave photographer and friend Carter Fish. I can’t wait to share more about that trip, but for the time being, just know that I’m pumped. It’s not going to be full-on bikini weather, but that’s not going to stop me from trying. And then a week after I get back from Bermuda, I’m off to Palm Beach (and a tiny stint in Tampa) with Julia for a girls’ trip.
I’m ready for all the swimsuits! (It doesn’t hurt that I’m really feeling strong and healthy from all the working out I’m doing… can’t lie, friends, can’t lie.)
Below, I’ve rounded up some cute picks of the season from a bunch of places. But I also wanted to let you know that J. Crew brought back my favorite suit from last year, in both red and navy. It’s just such a classic silhouette but still feels modern and cute. I recently got this seersucker suit and this floral one. I also am dying to try this ($22!!!!) lemon one piece and this gingham scalloped bikini. Oh, I also tried this one on during my fitting, and it’s an incredibly flattering suit– kind of retro too!
PS As crazy as it sounds to think of bathing suits in February, in my experience, it’s the best time to buy to ensure you get the size and style you want! Once they start selling out, they’re gone!!
