Growing up near the beach, I’m a firm believer that swimwear is your second skin. You wear it under everything, and I mean everything: shirts, pants, dresses and even work clothes! Once my day was done, I would shed my 9-5 garb and head to the coast to catch some much-needed vitamin D and relax to the sound of the waves.
Because swimwear is central to my lifestyle, picking the perfect bikini is wedding dress important in my book. Fortunately, Seafolly feels the same way as I do! Hailing from Australia, Seafolly has been keeping my beach vibe trendy and has given me a tremendous confidence boost. After all, who doesn’t want to look good when they go to the beach?
For resort season and throughout summer, I love to mix and match my tops and bottoms to keep everyone, myself included, guessing. Variety is the spice of life, and there’s no exception when it comes to swimwear. The Block Party Sweetheart was love at first sight. The deep V-neck is accentuating, and the adjustable straps allow me to look stunning while I’m catching some sun and have the perfect amount of support.
Now that your outfit is on its way to beach perfection, it’s time to choose the bottom. Vintage-inspired clothing is always in season, and the Riviera Stripe Ruched Side Retro Bottoms is just what I’m looking for. You get a bit of stretch with the ruched sides, and the stripe design is flattering to your waist. With these bottoms in your beach ensemble, you’re sure to turn heads with your retro chic style!
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from my many beach adventures, cover-ups are just as important as your swimsuit. Cover-ups give you the freedom to stroll around the beach without the difficulties associated with regular clothing. Wet jeans at the beach is never fun; I learned that one the hard way! Once you’re ready to work on your tan or splash around in the waves, cover-ups are easy to remove and just as easy to put on.
My personal favorite is the loose style of the Crochet Trim Kaftan. Its flowing silhouette keeps me cool by allowing the sea breeze to gently flow over my skin without having a “Seven Year Itch” moment. You can flaunt your natural beauty with the drawstring cinch, allowing you to accentuate every feature. After trying this kaftan cover-up, I can’t hit the sands without it!
When you’re ready to lounge by the pool or enjoy the sounds of the sea, remember that your swimsuit is just as important as your sunblock. Once you the find the perfect one, you’re set for the season.
