Happy Monday! (Insert super cheery voice powered by lots of caffeine.) The weather has been up + down these last few weeks as way lead our way up to the season of sunshine, pools, + beach days. But because I know summer days are just around the corner I thought I would do a round up of some favorite swimsuits + cover ups for you. Just in time for Memorial Day Weekend fun!

I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many swimsuits I’ve accumulated over the last few years. I just can’t seem to stop buying them even though I always end up with one go to favorite that I just wear on repeat. To be honest bathing suit shopping is on my top 3 least favorite pieces to shop for (yes, there’s a list. Bra shopping being number one, closely followed by jean shopping). It’s just hard to find something that’s not only cute + flattering but also comfortable. It takes years of finding mrs. wrong-swimsuit to find mrs. right. 😉 when I was younger the itsy bitsy pieces that you simply lounged in in one position without any sudden movement were easy, they were fun to wear. But now that I have a little one to chase around or am constantly bending over to + picking up it’s a whole different story. I need something that won’t give the rest of the pool-goers a peep show while still remaining sexy.

Enter this gorgeous maroon lace detail one-piece by Rebecca Virtue. It has a deep v down the front + a low back that ties across for easy wear. No peep shows + still sexy enough for a romantic getaway with my husband. I actually bought this last spring to wear during a wedding weekend in Florida so sadly it’s no longer available in this color. However, it is available in a number of other colors + I found a few look-a-likes in nice berry shades too. I paired it with a gorgeous flowing maxi cover-up. Seriously obsessed with this thing. It makes me feel so glamorous. The cover-up features a little tasseled tie in the front + though I’ve only worn it over my suit I am tempted to wear it with some shorts or even skinny pants + a top this summer like the model is (see above).

The sandals are Rebecca Minkoff + are also a few seasons old so no longer for sale. However I have seen a few pre-owned pairs for sale on Poshmark + the like + if you can score your size (they run a bit small, order a half size up) go for it!!! They are so comfortable + a great dupe for the Valentino ones.

Sending you guys lots of love for the week ahead + hoping for sunshine + perfect pool weather for the long weekend ahead! Xo, Jules
