Vacation Edit 2022: Swim

It’s that time of year!  Say it with me… VACATION!  For at least the last several years, my girlfriends and I have taken a spring/summer girls trip.  No partners, no kids, just us.  We’ve done Texas a few times, Santa Fe last year, and now Cabo.  We’ve all been dealing with our own fair share of life, so it goes without saying we’re counting down the days.  

Next to actually arriving at our destination, my favorite part about vacation is planning my outfits and the shopping that goes along with it.  Since we booked our trip I’ve been creating a mental checklist of the things I’ll need to complete my vacation looks.  And now that we’re just a few weeks out, I’ve got a list of purchases to cross off my list.  

We plan to spend the majority of our five days there next to a body of water, so most important on my list is swimwear.  Now I generally stick to the same swimsuit formula – a two piece with high-waist bottoms, mix-and-match solid colors, sarong and flip flops – but I’m feeling like it’s time to break out of my comfort zone.  I’ve spent hours scrolling the latest swimwear and below I’m sharing the pieces that caught my eye.

BRIGHT COLORS & PATTERNS

Solid & Striped The Elsa

Fun stripes.

Left On Friday Sunday Top

I own this top in this gorgeous green color and 24 Karat (Gold).

Body Glove Rio Kate Bikini Top

I own this one as well. Super cute with just about any bottom.

L*Space Pamela Bikini Top

Always drawn to black-and-white.

Roxy Beach Classics Elongated Triangle Bikini Top

Can't really go wrong with this floral pattern.

TEXTURED

Hunza G Pamela Swim

Very on trend color.

Roxy Love Rib Monyca Knotted Triangle Bikini Top

Interesting cut, and I jump at anything ribbed.

Fun colors with some sparkle.

Oseree Fuchsia Lumiere stretch-Lurex bikini

Long time admirer of Oseree, and I'm obsessed with this jewel-toned color.

Crochet is back, and I'm ok with that.

ONE-PIECE

Another option with a fun floral pattern.

Mango Swimsuit with back straps

Basic black, but with fun straps.

Armantia Side-Button One-Piece
