I have spring fever, and this cold snowy, icy New England weather has me feeling SAD. I escape on my computer planning a tropical vacation and I have ordered a few summer items. These are def summer must haves! It is really a no brainer, black one piece, cut off shorts, and a woven bag. This outfit will take you from the beach to the bar. I am obsessed with the leopard details on this swimsuit!
I have been fighting SAD (seasonal affective disorder) hard by taking trips to the gym and laying in the tanning bed. (Don’t hate, you prob would too if you were a stay at home mom living in New England) I just need the vitamin D and exercise… I have been planning a vacation somewhere tropical and I am so excited to get away. Kinda feeling guilty we are going without the kids, but Kev and I need it. I ordered several pieces for our upcoming vacation and when they came in much to my amazement I loved everything! I found the most perfect black one piece you guys! It has a lace up detail in the back and the front! The fabric is good and thick and the leopard detail is subtle, which I really love!! I will tell you though this swimmy does not have a padded bra, so there isnt not much support and the straps are pretty stretchy so you will need to beware of the nip slip. I ordered my regular size and I love how it fits. It is more of a sexy one piece not really splash park mom one piece (I need one of those still.)
I ordered the jean shorts that everyone raves about, I ordered a 24 because I guess I am being hopeful that I can loose the last 5 pounds that I want to shed. They have a button up fly and they are cut perfectly! The reason these jean shorts are all the rage is because they are cut and distressed to be flattering. The inner thigh is slightly longer and there is a good amount of rips in the pockets which helps hide the fact that these shorts are very short. I have long legs and a long torso (I am 5’8) and my booty was showing. This is why I would wear these as a beach cover up, not to the grocery store.
The bag that I found is a total must have! It is under $50 and seriously perfect! Its a good size, has an optional cross body strap that easily tucks inside the bag if you would rather carry it by its adorable handles… I am going to love this bag in Aruba.
I also found a few more things that I know you will love! These sunnies are on sale and they are my fav black framed cat eye! I just ordered mine today. I also ordered these sandals.
I would wear these for a day time outing.
And change into these for dinner.
Alot of times when I am at the beach I end up just wearing a cover up over my swimsuit. Huge reason why I love one pieces! If I am going exploring for the day I just need to bring shorts and a cute shoe and I can go anywhere! I am so excited to explore the island in this super cute summer outfit!
