Chic Suits and Cover Ups

June 26, 2017

I live in bathing suits in summertime.  In Charleston, we are so close to the water and pop to the beach nearly every day.   It was the same for us in France; we were in the pool or the sea daily and I found that it was so easy to throw on a bathing suit and nice cover up every morning and feel like I was dressed and ready.  I only brought a few suits to France and varied them with different little dresses and sarongs.  I’m mostly wearing one pieces now (I feel it’s age appropriate) but will probably try to pull off a bikini again later in the summer after some more workouts!   My white one piece has been a staple and I love pairing it with white button downs or dresses.

I also love this green suit (similar here) which I picked up in France — I was originally looking for a navy but this came in my size.  It isn’t a color I wear very often but I have really loved the variation from my typical blue and white wardrobe.   With the baby, I find I can’t wear anything too low cut or flimsy — he’s constantly tugging at me and I need a bit more support.  I have loved my black suit, too and find that it gets lots of compliments!  I have pulled some of my favorite cover ups and recent finds at the bottom of this post. xx
