don’t mind me, just casually adjusting my fabulous blue + white crochet untied bikini top.
oh wait…. on second thought, that may not be a photo of me…. its like looking in a mirror though I swear…..
I know summer is coming to an end, but I’m soaking in ever hot and sunny day we are still having in Chicago 🙂
I popped into Forever21 over the weekend and came up empty handed except for their great Buy 1 Get 1 Free swim special they have going on right now.
They had so, so many options to choose from. 2 bikini tops for $14? Can’t be beat.
I also like tops I can mix + match with my basic, go-to black bottoms.
I love Gingham, so that was an obvious choice, and then I have been wanting to get one of the flouncey/draped bikini tops and loved the fun print of the other.
my iPhone pics are insanely great 🙂 the bottom bikini looks strange but it is that flowy fabric top
all Forever21 Swim is buy 1 get 1 free in store and online!
they also have one of those checkout lines like HomeGoods or Marshalls that I love/hate because I find things for $5 to just throw in the cart. damn! so I grabbed that little cosmetics pouch for a couple bucks.
I also ordered this TopShop one piece during a moment of online shopping when I don’t know what came over me…. and it was sober shopping so I don’t know who I thought I was.
when it arrived, I thought I’d hate it, but I put it on and LOVED it. It is so, so flattering I was shocked. A white one piece? Flattering?
I ended up sending it back because there is no way I will be able to keep that thing clean. Every time I have white bikini bottoms the first day I wear them they somehow have stains just from sitting in the sand at the beach leaves marks all over the bottom. or I read a magazine and the bottoms are wet and the ink gets transferred onto them.
oh well….. if you are capable of being an adult unlike me then I highly recommend it!
J.Crew is having a big 30% off sale, and with that is lots of cute Cover Ups!
* I ordered this one to try!
and two more cute ones from Nordstrom:
