Struggling Hipster Swimsuit Picks

July 20, 2017

Swimsuit season is almost over, but then again I live in Texas! I’m heading out to the beach this weekend and given my last purchase for swimsuits went so well, I decided to try out some more options. Please note the sizes in these sites are true to size. If you normally wear a small, you with the small. Don’t think the pictures look too small, it’s probably your size.

Have you been eyeing those Maryia Swim or Solid & Striped options, but don’t want to invest in a trendy swimsuit? I felt the same way and tried out Zaful and CupShe.  My picks below are all under $50 so you can get 4 swimsuits for the price of those other trendy suits you see on Insta. Just give yourself enough time because they take 10 days or later to arrive.

I’m waiting for more to come in and I’ll be sure to share exact sizes.

See below for my top picks!

4th of July Swimsuit Inspiration

June 27, 2017

Can’t believe we’re already thinking about the 4th of July. I want time to slow down, please! This past weekend, I had a wonderful trip to L.A. (check out my Insta) where I got to do some light shopping, including swimsuits.

Since moving back to Texas, I have found myself more online shopping than ever before. It’s partly because of time and partly because the stores I used to shop in NYC aren’t here yet. That is definitely one thing that I miss about a big city like NYC, every store or new brand that wants to experiment in a market will always try NYC first. Hence, I always had a store to go and try on the clothes before clicking purchase.

So, while visiting L.A., I was able to try on the Cos swimsuits that I’d had my eyes on for a while. Just as an FYI that they do run big, so what might seem like a small size is actually not as small as you think. I’ve included my exact swimsuit in the collection below. If you’re looking for a gingham, one-piece, I bought the cutest one last year – check out this post.
