SWIMWEAR

Since it is OFFICIALLY summer, most swimsuits are already going on sale. We have a pool in our new house and I have always been a 2-3 swimsuit kind of girl since we would just go to the beach on the weekends. Now, I find myself getting dressed after the gym each day and putting on a swimsuit. It was time to invest in some more. As I was looking for myself I found so many good ones at incredible prices and wanted to share them with you! Here is what I found!

I purchased this one for myself and I love the embroidery and and the thick band on the bottom. Everett isn’t swimming by himself obviously so he needs to be held a lot in the pool so a top with good coverage that doesn’t sacrifice accentuating your figure is a must for me. Both pieces together are $63.

This one is so cute. A little more girly than I would normally choose but the black and white pattern sold me. The cut is flattering on the front and again, adds coverage! Both pieces total $52!

Abercrombie has SO many cute suits on sale. I got this lace up one piece (wearing it above), this red ruffle one and this maroon top and bottom. I am also loving this top with this bottom!

Forever 21 has some good one pieces. I love this sexy white one, this crochet one that comes in three colors and this lace up front one that has the cutest open back.

I have this top and it is currently on sale for $15. It is worn all the time paired with this bottom from Old Navy.

This balconette style has my eye lately and the emerald green of this one is gorgeous. Pair it with this bottom for a fun twist.

I hope you see something you like here! So many amazing choices and even better prices. I think I might always wait until July to buy my suits! Have a great July 4th weekend!

OUTFIT SNAPSHOTS

I’m back with another week of Outfit Snapshots. I am not going to lie, my outfits have been slightly comprised of bathing suits, gym clothes and a few regular clothing outfits mixed within. Although I am complaining at all so I will try and show you even the new swimwear I have been wearing. I have a full post of swim sales coming your way later this week! Ok, here is what I managed to wear other than a bathing suit last week!

Monday- I wore this bodysuit combo to BBQ with Joe and the kids at home. The cutoffs are my favorite splurge and I know I already got my money’s worth with them since I wear them multiple times a week.

Tuesday- I repeated this combo that I wore to the plant store this week again. The romper is on sale for $9.99 and very comfy.

Wednesday- Another outfit I repeated today, but I wore these girlfriend jeans and black top to run errands with the kids. These jeans are so comfy and only $25 and sizes are going fast!

Thursday- this is my gym and morning out day to myself. My parents come over and watch the kids and my dad always seems to complete a project for me, which is really the best ever! You probably saw this photo on Instagram last week and this is what I threw on when I got home after my shower. The romper is on sale for $10!

Friday- basic jean shorts and tank kind of day. These are my very very MOM shorts as Joe calls them, but I like the booty coverage for playing outside with my kids.

Saturday- Joe and I managed to get the kids to bed early and we had an at home date night. We try and do those every now and then. We poured drinks and sat on the deck listening to music! I wore this adorable black and white gingham top that is on sale for $10!

THE BEST GIRLFRIEND JEAN

I love New York City. Every time I go I feel carefree and alive. It is really the greatest city ever and I do feel so lucky to live so close! Last week I attended an event for Hushpuppies and previewed their Fall collection. So many cute options! I wanted an outfit that was casual enough for a daytime event but that also didn’t look like I rolled out of bed. Enter the best girlfriend jean.

girlfriend jeans styled with a one shoulder white top and platform sandals. The perfect outfit for casual date night, brunch or a day out.

Ladies- these jeans are UNREAL. I was searching for a pair of jeans exactly like this and kept striking out. Some were too long, some too baggy, some not enough distressing, some too much. The list can go on. I wanted a pair that was fitted in the butt but loose in the leg, had a raw hem and was cropped but not a capri. I found these at Abercrombie and THEY ARE $25. Is that even real?? I am normally a 25 but I ordered a 26 Short for these because I did not want them tight. They are perfect and selling out quick so jump on them if you want them!

I wanted to pair these jeans with a heel for the event but I would 100% wear them with flat sandals as well. My shoes are an old sample from when I used to work corporate fashion but these would give you the same look.

Sadly my exact top is sold out. But any wispy white top would achieve the same styling for this outfit. I linked a few below!! White and denim is so classic but this look feels fresh with the trendy jeans and platform shoes. I added a gold wrap necklace for a delicate shine and I just love how this outfit came out! I linked details to my outfit below and I will say it again, I cannot recommend these jeans enough! Happy shopping ladies!
