I'm also anxious to have some time in the sun and thought that I'd treat myself to a new bathing suit. Around the same time that I was looking, I got an email from Swimspot.com about buying designer swimwear and they offered to have me test out their Bikini Builder to find a swimsuit and send me the one I chose.
I had fun putting some swimsuits together, I settled on the 3 above to choose from. I ended up getting the 3rd one, which is this top + this bottom. I got it in the mail and was very happy with the suit and it even came in a cute little drawstring bag that you can pack it with.
I admit, I am a bit wary of buying swimsuits online as it's so much easier to try things on in store but swimspot has great selection and I like that you can mix and match any top and bottom. I am different sizes on both top and bottom so I have to be able to buy them in separates. Often times it's hard for me to find bottoms that fit me because I do not have a booty to fill out any bottoms and usually I get extra fabric in that area (which is so unattractive) but the XS in the bottom I got fit perfectly so I was very happy. Check out their website and join their VIP club (the form is in the top right corner of The Spot), find them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
Of course with a new swimsuit I had to look for other swim accessories... The good thing about buying swim stuff now is that all of it is on sale!
or this one is pretty dang cute too.
Ruffles! And on sale for $29.99!
Marc by Marc Jacobs make the best sunglasses for under $100. I love the big ones that cover my face :)
