The Mix & Match Bikini

Swim Week is officially coming to a close.
I know, I know. I’m devastated too.
But don’t worry. I’m a West Coast baby, so there will be loads and loads of swim posts for the summer season.
This past week, I’ve worn two sets (matching tops & bottoms) which is a great way to introduce yourself to wearing bikinis. Today, however, I’m asking you to think outside of the set. Today’s look is a combination of Victoria’s Secret and Forever 21+. Pink and white is one of my favorite color combinations. Wear your favorite combination! Mix and match solids and prints, complimentary colors… have fun!

swim top via victorias secret {old, similar this season | } | swim bottom via forever 21 {these are incredible and under $12!} | sandals via target {old, similar in wide from torrid} | bag via louis vuitton | panama hat via torrid | palazzo pants via ava & viv at target

For this post, I wanted to challenge you to look beyond your average swim cover up. For pear-shaped girls who want to conceal our hips and legs most, a great pair of wide palazzo pants can be a great alternative. These pants from Ava & Viv scream resort wear and can double as your cover up as well as your ‘grabbing drinks by the pool’ pants (paired with a crochet crop top, perhaps?)

PS – Did you guys see me on BuzzFeed this week? Yesterday’s post made their Top 37 Bikini Bodies, and yours truly ranked in at #7.
Can you believe it?! I can’t! Crazy! I’ll be floating on clouds while I’m poolside in my bikini this weekend!

PPS – For you gals that are getting married this spring/summer… stay tuned, I have something very special planned for you!
