2018 Swimsuit Round Up!

From Left to Right: Kristi (Shoptini), Sydney (Coffee Stained Lace), Me, Anna ( Lifestyle of Anna Elizabeth), Vanessa (The Primpy Sheep)

I can’t believe we’re already halfway through summer! Time seriously is flying by and sometimes I wish I could slow things down.

If you’re like me this summer, majority of my beach trips are planned for August and September (hello honeymoon!). Or maybe you just lounge around poolside until mid-fall. Either way, you might still be in need of some new swimmies! Today, I’m rounding up some of my recent favorites and some of my all time favorites!

Where’s your favorite place to shop for new swimsuits? Let me know on my most recent Instagram post!

P.S. This shoot was so fun with Jade Nikkole Photo and some of my favorite Baltimore Blogger Babes (Lifestyle of Anna Elizabeth, The Primpy Sheep, Coffee Stained Lace and Shoptini). Also my tan is from Two Bronzed Babes Rachel! Check out more pics below!

Pink Striped Cut Out One Piece

This suit I bought literally TWO DAYS before this shoot! I was still in Chicago for work and totally forgot to buy something new. So I hopped on Amazon and ordered a couple different options and this was a clear winner! It was only $18. I sized up to a Medium and it fit perfect! P.S. This hat was one of my favorites finds EVER! $5 at Target compared to much more on Etsy.

Olive Green Bikini

This next one I haven’t technically worn yet but also another Amazon pick! I chose this to bring along on our honeymoon to Hawaii. We have plans to go swimming in some waterfalls and I thought this would be totally perfect!

Scalloped White Bikini (Top | Bottom)

For my bachelorette party, my girls and I headed off to Charleston (read all about it here!) and I wanted to have the perfect white swimsuit to wear at the beach. But I also wanted to make sure it would be one I could wear again and not specifically a “Bride” one. I’d been eyeing up the Scalloped Bikini from Marysia Swim but couldn’t get myself to do it with the high price tag. In came Missguided! This was perfect for my bachelorette party! Although the top didn’t have padding, I just took some from another bikini top and it was all good haha!

Here are some more favorites of my from summers before or just ones I’ve been admiring!

Favorite J.Crew Top

I have this one in Lavender and I wore it allll last summer. Super cute and comfortable!

Pink Ruffle Pattern Bikini (Top | Bottom)

I'm obsessed with the colors, patterns and ruffle on this bikini! It also comes in a gorgeous blue!

Simple One Piece

One pieces are back in style and I love the simplicity of this one!

Splurge Statement Piece

This one is definitely more of a splurge but I'm seriously so obsessed with the lace detailing!
