If you are an avid follower of 'Gracefully Taylored' then you have seen my recent beach excursions. We went down to Tampa in the end of June, then Jon Luke and I went to 30A for Labor Day weekend. I have to say, it is seriously my happy place. There is just something about having my toes in the sand, smelling that salty air...FAVORITE. Not sure if I have shared this before, but my dad's side of the family lives down in Tampa so I grew up taking vacations to see them regularly. I think that is how the love started. Not long after I was born, my mom and dad took me down there to see the grandparents...and the rest is history.
And naturally, because I have a strong love of the beach, I also LOVE new swimwear. Like, love. I have an entire drawer full and I am still constantly shopping for new styles. From one pieces to high waisted bikinis, I love having different styles to choose from. I rounded up some of my favorite styles and brands as of late so keep reading to see more!
This number from L*Space is one of my absolute favorites. If you remember, I also have it in white (the top is slightly different but see here) and I LOVE how it fits. The high waist style combined with the higher hip situation makes me feel confident on the beach. My legs looks longer and I just love it.
Another high waisted option, the brand Marysia has my heart. I love these scalloped edges, and the one shoulder detail is so fun. The suit was perfect for the beach, but I would also be able to wear this for adventure because the top is secure!
I won't lie, I am a fan of the one piece. The classic, two strap with the low back is a great silhouette and this green option is from Target! Not only is it cute but it is super affordable!
I was recently introduced to the brand Summersalt but y'all...these suits are great. The colors are vibrant but the fit is great! This option is perfect for more coverage, but I still feel sexy and confident for whatever our plans are!
When I want to look pretty on the beach or in the sun, this suit is it. I love the lines of this suit. There are simple cut outs, with off the shoulder details and I am obsessed. It fits so well and I feel so confident in this suit!
I really am sad to see summer go because I could stay by the pool or at the beach for a while. Good news is, I have some trips planned during winter that will allow me to escape the cold and get back in my favorite suits!
