I'm kicking off a new series - on Monday's I'm going to try to post something pertaining to life in Maine. Maine events, Maine Makers or favorite things to do, we'll see where it goes and feel free to make suggestions! Today I thought it would be fund to talk about March events. Sandwiched between school breaks, with Winter sports wrapping up, crazy temperature shifts, snow, mud and rain, the month of March can be a long one here in Maine. Regardless of the season though there is always fun to be had here in Maine - here's a list of 6 events we're looking forward to.
Happy Friday friends! Hard to believe, but the week after February break flew by. While our weekend may be filled with hockey games, I've got warmer weather on the brain. It's a wet and dreary day here in Maine so naturally I'm starting to think about Spring break. We're heading to Florida for the kids school vacation in April, and it can't come soon enough. I'll do another post soon on all vacation favorites, but today I'm talking swimsuits. Finding the right suit for myself isn't always easy - I'm on the hunt for suits that work with my mom life (i.e. stays in place when I chase my boys) fully cover my bum, are comfortable, cute and make me feel good. I've rounded up some of my favorites so far this season. Some of these I own and LOVE and some are currently in my shopping cart!
1. Kortni Jeane
I love ALL my Kortni Jeans suits but I am especially partial to her bottoms! They are so comfortable even when running after toddlers and they also make me feel cute and chic but with a little extra coverage. Her high-waisted skirt is a vacation/summer staple for me.
2. BCA Cut Out one piece
I just bought this suit and wore it for the first time last week chasing my 2 year old around an indoor waterpark. Safe to say it's comfortable, easy to move in and everything stays in place. It's comfortable and feels a little more chic than other one pieces I have. Be sure to click the link above and check out the back! P.S. the sizing on this suit starts at a small which actually fits like an xs, so you may want to size up one.
3. Merona Women's Ruffle one piece from Target
Let's just say if I had a girl to dress she'd be wearing a lot of ruffles - give me all the ruffles. This color is called exciting purple and it's gorgeous! Who says a one piece can't be fun! One of my favorites suits from last season was from Target - love their price points and options.
4. Lilly Pulitzer Lanai Halter One piece
To know me is to know I love all things Lilly! Always have and always will. Lilly suits like most of their pieces aren't cheap, but they're high quality and stunning. This is my favorite suit of the season - it's currently sitting in my shopping cart waiting for me to splurge.
5. Tie Front Bralette Bikini with Tie Back High-Waisted Bottom
I just ordered this one yesterday, so I'll be sure to report back. I'm loving the pretty floral pattern and the unique details with the ties. As you can see I'm loving the high-waisted style; I've been finding it really comfortable flattering and a great for momming. I'm a little nervous about the coverage on the bottom - I'm hoping it offers more coverage than the picture, but I'll let you know when it arrives. Targetis offering buy one get one 50% off on much of their swim collection so it's a great time to stock up.
6. Vineyard Vines Seersucker Ruffle Suit
More ruffles! I've had several Vineyard Vines suits over the years with great success. Many have lasted me several seasons. I have not tried this one on, but it's def. at the top of my list. I'm loving the fun style paired with classic fabric. I don't buy many bikinis, but this would definitely be one I'd go fo.
7. Loft Keyhole Halter one piece swim suit
To be honest I haven't tried Loft swimsuits yet, but I've been a fan of what they've been putting out lately. I'm loving the ruching detail on the front of this one (great for us moms) and the lower cut on the bottom. Like a LBD, everyone needs a great black bathing suit.
8. J.Crew Halter Peplum Tankini at Nordstrom
J.Crew suits have traditionally worked well for me in the past. Their suits aren't cheap, but they're quality and tend to last multiple seasons. I love the peplum look. I wore a suit like this the summer after W was born and it was perfect. Covered all the right places and made me feel much more confident and comfortable. Such a cute style though and perfect for hanging out at the beach or by the pool watching the kids.
Who else is ready for warm weather and sunshine?!? Are any of these suits in your shopping cart?! I'll be sure to keep you posted as new ones come in, and I'll also work on getting a post up soon with other vacation favorites. My absolute favorite coverup from last year I have not seen available, but it was from Vineyard Vines, my hands down favorite flip flops are the Sanuk Yoga Sandals (they're like walking on yoga mats) and my favorite sunscreen for myself is from Beautycounter (you can shop my link here). Also my first stop for suits for my boys is usually SwimZip, we've had great luck with their suits. Ok more to come soon!
Thanks as always for stopping by!
