She Wore A...

Well, it's not quite a yellow polka dot bikini, but it is bright yellow!





The straps are detachable; in fact, I haven't even tried it on yet with the straps! Perfect for that no-tan-line look I'm going for.

I originally saw the suit here and loved it. But I didn't love the $100 price tag.

Then I went to my favorite store (TJ Maxx) and guess what I saw - this exact suit! And it was only $25!!!! And they had it in my size!!! And it fit beautifully!

I wasn't sure how my fiance would feel about it - I think in his mind I'm supposed to be wearing bikinis at least until I have kids. :) And I will have plenty of bikinis on the honeymoon, but I love having this as another option.

Living in southwest Florida brings lots of opportunities for beach/pool parties. In fact, we are having a pool party for both our honeymoon shower and my bachelorette! So I know this beauty will be getting a lot of use.

Now I just need the big floppy hat to complete the outfit. :)

Have you made any fun bathing suit purchases to celebrate summer?

  2. So cute!! My FI says the same thing, though! I pointed out a super cute one-piece the other day and his reaction was "Meh. I want you in bikini's for as long as possible." It's like, glad you like my body so much, but there are so many other CUTE options!!

  5. I am fearful of the same thing. Strap lines! I found some great basic two pieces/bandeau tops at Old Navy that were cheap and disposable!I would try their website if you are interested as they have more sizes there.

  7. Cuuuute. I would love to have a cute one piece in addition to my bikinis, but I have a proportionally short torso, so I've always had problems in that department. I just got some adorable & affordable new two-piece suits from Old Navy & Target for our honeymoon though!
