Back in the day (high school) my goal was to be as tan and blonde as possible. The contrast between the color of my hair and skin in the summer was laughable… and not natural at all. My friends and I would slather ourselves in tanning oil before going to the beach. There we’d bake in the sun all day, rinse and repeat. It makes me cringe thinking about the amount of damage I inflicted on my poor skin! Ahh if I could turn back time…
A few weeks ago it was cold and cloudy and even rained once or twice. I was going a little stir crazy after being inside with a baby all week so we decided to head out on an adventure. We drove up the coast a ways and discovered some nearby beach towns we’d never really visited before. And even though it was cold and felt like our one week of winter, it was such a fun day.
In our house we consider the start of summer Memorial Day, but the official start to summer is just a couple of weeks away! I know I’ll be spending a lot of time at the beach and pool and wanted to share my favorite swimwear for the upcoming months. There’s such a huge variety these days so I’m breaking down my top 3 favorite styles below.
