Whether you like it or not…..it’s bikini season! Typically, we ladies start doing our crunches and squats to look cute in our teeny, tiny string bikinis but retro-style swimwear may be another option if you didn’t quite get into the shape you would have liked. The high-waisted bikini is making a resurgence at the poolside. A little more modest bikini bottom but with a sexy bustier top is the perfect alternative for a variety of body types.
This bikini incorporates classic gingham highlighted by sexy red seaming and bows.
This gorgeous fuscia bikini is more like wearing a bottom with a crop top showing only a slither of tummy. This is a great option for those wanting a more modest look.
I love this bright flamingo suit by Forever 21. I could just see myself by a pool in Miami with large retro sunglasses.
This fun floral bikini by Clover Canyon has a more triangle shaped bikini top if you just want the high-waisted bottom without the bustier style top.
If you’re really daring, this edgy cut-out bikini may be just the one for you.
Will you be channeling your inner pin-up girl this summer?
It’s that time of the year when families and friends head out of town on fun excursions for spring break. I was not so lucky to be going anywhere fun this time so instead I live vicariously through Instagram posts of happy people enjoying the beach. I decided that if I can’t go anywhere, I can at least help someone plan a fabulous outfit for their fun trip. This is something I would wear if I was headed to the beaches of say…St Barts. I love eye-catching, bright swimwear. Bright colors look so good in the sun and no one makes a more colorful bikini than Mara Hoffman. I especially love the bustier top which is great for us ladies who aren’t as blessed in the cleavage area. A soft, white tunic cover-up is a nice complement to offset bright swimwear and I love the bohemian feel of this one. You can easily throw on some cut-off shorts and head to lunch. Oversized sunglasses will be huge this season and they always add a touch of glam to a look. A lot of people forget about wearing jewelry at the beach or pool but I love to accessorize at all times. A simple pendant necklace is easy and chic. All you need is a great straw bag and some fun sandals. These Kate Spade sandals are too adorable.

I hope you enjoy your vacation wherever you may be headed and have some fun for me too!
