Summer has officially begun, and you know what that means — it’s time to start complaining about the heat again! Errr… I mean, time to break out the swimsuit and dive right in!!!
I’ve always been a bit of a water baby. As a kid I would spend entire days in the pool until my fingertips were virtually unrecognizable, and my eyes stung with chlorine. I often even ate lunch on a floating table, and now that I think of it, colour-changing water myths be darned, I don’t remember taking any bathroom breaks (now that’s dedication).
There really is no better way to beat the summer heat though, and looking fab while doing it…? Winniiing!!!
So, I made a trip to Penningtons to get the skinny on their latest plus size swimsuits, and their selection had me pretty stoked!
First, I tried a cute, sporty, one piece. It seemed pretty unassuming on the hanger, as one pieces often do, but once I put it on, I fell in love with its classic black with white trim, and flattering lines!
Paired with this fab mesh cover up, it’s the perfect poolside look, that will have you feeling chic as you lounge in the sun, and confident in the water whether you’re splashing around, or doing laps!
Now this next one… This swim dress is special!!! I’m talking, can-you-marry-swimwear(?), special. Because honey, if I could, this would be the one. It’s like fashions perfect hybrid!!! Is it a bathing suit? Is it a dress made by mermaids? Iono!? But one thing is for sure, it’s stunning, and I felt amazing in it!
Dressed up for a jaw-dropping poolside glam look, with a shiny necklace and this vibrant, printed cover up – all you need is a piña colada, a great book, and a hot pool boy! (Just let me have my fantasy, k?)
Next — turn up the heat while flaunting those curves in this super sexy bikini!!! I’m obsessed with it. It’s everything a bikini should be, and I want it on me always. Just saying. (Shhh, don’t tell the swim dress!)
And when it’s time for less pool and more party, just slip into this gorgeous, matching leopard print, strapless cover up (which could honestly double as an awesome summer dress) and you’re ready to dance the night away by the light of the tiki torches!
Lastly, this adorable polka dot tankini! Ok seriously, how much fun are these ruffles!? And I’m totally loving these swim shorts! This whole look feels kind of retro somehow, and I’m here for all of it!
Topped off by this beautiful wrap, you’re ready to grab a poolside bite in style (and you can sneak in a bathroom break while you’re at it)!
So be sure to have some fun accessorizing your swimwear this summer! Throw on an awesome pair of sunnies and be fabulous in and out of the water! Mix and match, but most of all, feel beautiful!
And if you happen to know a hot pool boy… Well, you know where to refer him! 😉
