SUMMER SWIMSUIT TREND FAVORITES


There are so many good swimsuit trends this year! When I was shopping for suits for our vacation, I kept my eye out mostly for suits that I would feel comfortable chasing around my kids in. I was blown away by the selection of once piece suits at Nordstrom that were right on trend for this season. 

I picked out my favorites in each of the top trends for this year- floral, Americana, cutouts, and crochet...

FLORAL


I'm loving these prints! The florals keep the suit pretty and feminine and that is right  up my alley.



AMERICANA 

This is such a cute trend, especially with the Fourth of July right around the corner. The full American flag suit is bold, which I sometimes shy away from, but I love this one! I also rounded up a little more understated Americana suits that are darling. 


CUTOUTS 

CUTOUTS
           
                  I love cutouts in one pieces! It keeps the suit fun and gives it a little personality.

CROCHET


The visual interest of crochet suits is so pretty and delicate. Since they can be a bit busy, I usually stick to black or white crochet suits.

INSTAGRAM ROUNDUP + MEMORIAL DAY SALES

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! Don't forget that the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is still going on now through June 5th! In case you missed it, I put together a big roundup of my favorite items from the sale here. I broke it down into categories, so it's easy to shop the things I'm loving right from the post. I've also rounded up all the best Memorial Day sales at the bottom of this post, and some of my favorites like AsosJ. CrewAnthropologieOld Navy, and Ann Taylor are having some amazing sales!

If you follow along with me on Instagram, you know I've been in Hawaii this past week. I've gotten a lot of questions about the suits I've worn, and I haven't been able to answer everyone's questions while I've been gone, so I figured I would link to them all here and try to answer some of the questions that I've gotten!



This suit is the most adorable print! I tend to stick to solid color suits, but this print was too pretty to pass up. It goes low in the front, but the laceup in the middle keeps it from being too low. This also has a decent amount of support, unlike a lot of suits with this cut.



SWIMSUIT (I wear size 6) | SUNGLASSES | NECKLACE

Another pattern I fell in love with was this suit! It's just gorgeous. And the chicest tropical print I've ever seen. It isn't too loud and obnoxious. I would say this is the most comfortable suit I wore in Hawaii. The fabric quality is amazing. It's super soft and the torso is really long, which is hard to find. And there is amazing support in the bust. I also love the cut out in the middle. Cutouts are huge this season. 



SWIMSUIT (I wear size 6) | SUNGLASSES | LIPSTICK (in 'Claudia')

I don't think I could pick a favorite suit, but if I had to....it might be this one. Soft, durable fabric, and the color is amazing. Even more beautiful in person. The torso is long on this one, and the crochet detailing is sexy without being too revealing. 



SWIMSUIT (I wear size 32 C/D) | SUNGLASSES | BABY ONESIE | BABY FEDORA

Such a beautiful floral print on this one. Ted Baker always gets florals right. And there is incredible support in the bust, since they are harder formed cups. The torso is a bit shorter on this one than a few of my others, but there is a tie in the back that helps keep the top up and secure.



SWIMSUIT (I wear a medium) | WATCH | HAT

I can't even with this suit. A bow and stripes? Come on. It's so amazing. Long torso, and the bow is so cute in person. I like to wear the removable straps with this one when I'm going to be walking around a lot to help hold the bow up, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me.



SWIMSUIT TOP + BOTTOMS (both in a small) | SUNGLASSES | SIMILAR SANDALS | BABY ONESIE SUIT 

To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of high waisted suits, but this one was way more flattering than any other one I've tried on! The top provides a good amount of coverage and support, and the color of the suit is so pretty and vibrant. 




This is my favorite deep V suit I've ever worn. The support it offers is amazing! It provides padding in all the right places, and I felt so comfortable in it. The back is also cut really low with a cute bow, and I love it! Fantastic quality. 





Have you gotten a chance to shop the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale yet? Here are some of my favorite pieces at amazing prices...
  • My favorite Vince Camuto lilac top (worn in this post) is on sale. It's one of my absolute favorites, and it's so easy to dress up or down. 
  • My favorite Kate Spade shoulder bag sold out fast, but I love this Kate Spade crossbody, and this crossbody in white.
  • Brown leather sandals are so in right now, and this pair adds a touch of gladiator, which I love. These ones are simple, and perfect for everyday wear.
  • These black distressed jeans sold out way too fast, but I found some other pants that I loved. These Joe's are a great pair of distressed jeans, and these flares are really flattering.

MY NORDSTROM HALF YEARLY SALE PICKS




The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on now through June 5th! I went through and picked out my favorite items and put them below in categories so they're easy to shop straight from this post. I was actually surprised at how fast items are selling out! A lot of things only had a few sizes left, only a few hours after the sale started. So don't wait if you love something because chances are it won't be there when you come back for it later!

Overall, I think this sale has a lot of really great practical items that will work for both Spring and Summer. If you're like me, you can appreciate the value of quality basics that work with multiple outfits, like this top that comes in a few different colors, and this flowy top that is so comfy and flattering. There are lots of cute sandals and flats too. I love these wrap sandals, and these studded flats. And don't miss out on some really cute bags, like this Rebecca Minkoff tote in grey. Have fun shopping, and let me know what you guys find out there!

You can shop more of my favorites from each department below..

TUESDAY OUTFIT INSPIRATION



Happy Tuesday everyone! I love how simple, yet elegant this look is. This amazing blue eyelet top is so feminine with the prettiest details. The light blue almost looks white, so it works perfectly with these white pants and pale blue wedges. I threw in some pretty bright pops of color with this adorable bag and turquoise ring. I went with NARS lipstick in the color 'Catherine,' which is an orangey pink that ties in really well with the pale blues. I kept the earrings distinctive and white, so that they weren't taking away from the rest of the pieces. And I always love a simple gold watch. Tie it all together with this perfume, which smells amazing and lasts all day, and you're set.

You can shop all of these outfit details by clicking through the links below or by item name above. Have a great rest of your day, and remember to check back here Thursday for all my Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale finds!
