I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer. I think I’m perpetually ready for warm weather. From October-April, I have one thing on my mind: summer. I don’t want to bypass spring, because right now is also among my favorite time of year. Spring and summer equate to a happy, pleasant Olivia.
For the first time in my life, I have no summer travel plans coming up. I’m hoping that will change because I’ve still been perusing the internet for my favorite swimwear. Swimsuits remind me of the first day of school growing up. Every summer, I tend to buy one or two new bathing suits and they become my go-to for the season. It just feels like one of those wardrobe items you update or add to your collection every year. It brings me back to my youth when you would head to the store with your mom a few weeks before school started to pick out a fresh pair of kicks for the school year.
I’ve become a staunch one-piece swimsuit wearer in the past ten years. They feel much more comfortable and less “on display” (sorry Melissa Gorga). I love this strappy solid-colored option and this one-shoulder suit is also in a solid color (I personally own this suit and love the coverage and flattering shape).
I included a couple of black and white swimsuits in this roundup. I know you’re thinking ‘but Olivia, that’s not colorful’. Agreed, but there is something about pairing black and white together that makes an instant statement. They complement each other and it just pops.
As of right now, I don’t have any summer trips planned for the first time in my life. It’s been a hectic year so we held off making any concrete summer plans in advance. As a result, flight prices are now officially outlandish. I looked at flights to the Caribbean a few days ago and couldn’t find anything below $1,200 a person. We had our destination all picked out and ready to book and the absurd flights brought that to an immediate halt.
There’s a strong chance the closest I will get to a body of water this summer is at my condo’s pool. As long as I’m sporting colorful swimwear, anywhere will feel like a vacation!
