How to Find Your Perfect Bathing Suit

  Today I saw something that I thought I would never see again, the sun. It was so beautiful, so perfect and so everything I've been needing lately. As I was prancing around outside enjoying the warm on my face a scary little thought popped into my head, it is almost bathing suit season. Bathing suit season, in my opinion, is the best and worst thing about summer. Every year stores come out with new styles in pretty colors with girly details that just make me want to buy every single one and never take them off. That is until I realize that wearing one makes me practically naked and I haven't been to the gym in forever, and I have recently consumed half my body weight in jelly beans. So with that being said, I'm putting together a little listy lou of bathing suits for different body types, you can thank me later.

Ohhhh Victoria's Secret, talk about a game changer. Anytime you are looking for a new bathing suit, immediately go to VS. They have the cutest ones in a ton of different styles. This one is great for small chested girls. The top is a Fabulous Push Up which will boost the girls up and make you look bigger than you actually are.

This bikini top from Forever 21 is also perfect for smaller chested girls. The ruffles give the affect of being larger without exposing too much. This tankish style top is also really trendy right now, you'll be perfectly in season in any color you choose.

For girls with bigger chests, Victoria's Secret offers great choices to hold everything in place. VS even has bathing suits in size DD, which can be tricky to find. This one is perfect with the wider straps and cups. It has minimal padding for extra coverage, so you never have to worry about anything becoming exposed while you're on the beach.

For girls out there with straight and athletic bodies, Forever 21 has cute high waisted bottoms that will give you coverage and fake curves. Since the bottoms sit higher on the waist, it will bring your hips out  and elongate your legs so you look curvy but still proportional. This will also make shorter girls look taller by extending your legs.

If you're looking for more coverage, tankinis and one pieces are still totally in. Just because you're not in a bikini doesn't mean you have to look frumpy. This pretty one from Victoria's Secret comes in multiple colors that are perfect for summertime. The top gives appropriate cleavage while the rest keeps you covered.

   This one piece from Victoria's Secret has a Firm Control system built in that keeps everything in place and hides any imperfections. The black color is very slimming and the suit is offered up to size 16DD.

These last three I added in as little bonuses. All these suits are very on trend right now and would look amaze on all different body types. You can get all three of them at Pac Sun.

Are any of you guys shopping for new bathing suits? Let me know in the comments below if you plan on trying any of these out.

My Latest Obsessions- Shift Dresses and Tribal Print

As I'm sure we all know by now, it doesn't take a lot to get me excited for a new trend. Once I see it in pretty colors and available for a good price, I have to have it. This Spring is no exception. My current lust worry trends are shift dresses and anything in tribal print. Shift dresses first caught my attention when I spotted a couple on LuLu's in pretty pastels. I knew at once I need 4 of them for the warmer months to show off my tan. They are just so effortlessly gorgeous looking and perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit to grab lunch or go shopping. Tribal print has been around the past couple of seasons, but now it's being made over in gorgeous neon colors that make me need it. From tops, to bags, to phone cases tribal print is easy to bring in to any wardrobe.

This was the original dress I saw back in January that started it all. Such a pretty color combination with the cream and ombre pink, I wanted it immediately. I tried to be good and not order it for a little while, but we all know I have zero self control and recently purchased it. You can pick it up here and we can be twinnies.

This is a new addition to the website and I am dangerously close to purchasing it. Not only is it brightly colored, but it's brightly colored with this seasons most popular colors. I would wear this dress everyday if it wasn't considered weird. I love the half sleeves on the dress and how easy it is to dress it up or down. You can purchase it here

I feel like we're all friends here, so I know that I can tell you guys that I also bought this dress (in a different color) and you won't judge me. I was debating back and forth between this color and the peach/lilac color that I bought. I adore this cream and navy combo and now I'm a little sad I didn't get this one. This would be perfect in the summer with cognac sandals and long gold necklaces. You can get it here, just don't tell me or otherwise I'll be really jealous.

These are by far my favorite pair of pants ever. I can't get over how cute the coral is with the pink tribal print. I want them so, so so bad but I'm trying so hard to behave. These would be so cute with a sheer flowy top and brown leather sandals. They may accidentally end up in my shopping cart after this blog because I need them. You can get them here

If you're feeling less certain about tribal print and want to slowly introduce pieces into your closet, these bangles are perfect. I love how the coral and yellow would spice up any outfit without making it look too much. Grab them here.

This shirt is great for casual days where you don't want to put much effort into choosing an outfit. I love the metallic accents that keep it from looking too boring. The blues and pinks together also give the shirt a very girly vibe without being too overpowering. Find it here.

Last but not least, is this gorgeous dress from LuLu's. I love the soft colors in this dress because it's so different from anything else I've seen. I also love the high-low hem and halter neck. It's a very unusual shape in the perfect way. This dress would look great with a pair of black heels for an evening out.

Now that you guys know I'm a complete shopaholic and have no restraint, what are you planning on picking up this season? I'm still waiting for the warm weather to show up so I have a chance to wear all my new clothes, but until then I'll just keep day dreaming about all the different ways I could be wearing them. Have a great week.
