A Summer Essential: Bathing Suits!!!

June 21, 2012

What better way to celebrate the official start of summer than with a blog post dedicated to all things swimwear!? One of my favorite wardrobe staples in the summer is of course a really fabulous bathing suit (and not to mention an equally fabulous cover-up). I have quite the collection of swimsuits I have collected over the years. A swimsuit is a great wardrobe investment: pay a little more for a good quality swimsuit now because they will last you for YEARS if you take good care of them (i.e.: rinse them out with water after swimming before putting in the wash on a delicate cycle, letting them air dry, etc).

This year I bought 2 new swimsuits to add to my collection, both from Victoria’s Secret.  The first swimsuit I bought is white (I LOVE a white bathing suit…it shows off a tan so very nicely) with hot pink flowers and black/white stripes. Very classic Ashley if I do say so myself….

The great thing about buying swimsuits at Victoria’s Secret is you can do a little mixing and matching, which is what I did with the next swimsuit I purchased. The yellow bottoms went with a different top originally but I liked the look with the black/white striped bandeau top. PLUS I can wear this top with the bottoms pictured above---so really I have 3 new swimsuits. AND Bonus with a bandeau swimsuit top: no tan lines!!!
