Retro Swimwear: The High-Waisted Bikini

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.

Lahco Of Switzerland - Rimini High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

This bikini incorporates classic gingham highlighted by sexy red seaming and bows. 


Tori Praver Swim - Kenny High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

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.

Forever 21 - Flamingo Striped High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

I love this bright flamingo suit by Forever 21.  I could just see myself by a pool in Miami with large retro sunglasses.

Clover Canyon - Cigar Granny High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

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.


Kooj - Lace Up High-Waisted Bikini

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?

Thanks for reading!

What I Would Wear on Spring Break….

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.
