{ bathing suit mixing and matching }

sep (2)Bathing suits

Last week I went on a little shopping spree. An unintentional shopping spree, but aren't they always? Every year I buy myself a designer suit as a gift to myself after months of working out.  This year I took the $200 I normally spend on the designer suit and, instead of just one suit, I ended up with an entire suit wardrobe! Really. See the proof on instagram.

I got phone calls from friends saying they were inspired to do the same but had a bit of difficulty figuring out how to mix and where to shop. So here is a little guide to help you out. I recommend the Victoria's Secret website because while there were limited colors, styles and sizes in stores, online you have access to everything. That, and the prices were better online. I completed my swim-drobe at H&M. I was shocked at the cute styles there. Dalmatian print bottoms? Yes, please.

Separates are the way to go in my opinion.Here's how to make it work: start with a matching black top and bottom, and a matching printed top and bottom. Then, work in any additional colors you want into those neutrals. Last week I wore a red ruffled top from h&m with teal-green hipster bottoms and I can't wait to pack my leopard print tops to St. Thomas next week.

Hope this inspired you to mix things up this year without breaking the bank! If you want to follow my guide, you can shop directly from the links and widget below. Happy summer shopping!
