The weather and forecast is so completely depressing in Portland right now. I really try not to complain, but the next three months are my absolute least favorite here. When I awoke to sideways, windy, torrential downpour rain, I quickly texted my Mom to see when we could get down to Palm Desert next to visit my Grandad (God bless you Grandad for choosing such a warm and dry place to live, with a pool, and for begging me to let you use your miles to fly me down there). Luckily a trip is in the works for this month, and even if it's a super short weekend, I'll take it. Anything to provide a much needed, vitamin D loaded break from this place.
So to focus on the sunny side, I figured what's better than a little b-suit shopping to get my mind out of the rain and onto a poolside lounge chair?! Nothing, exactly. Here are some of my favorites right now:
|Nylon Tricot Hooded Swimsuit from American Apparel|
Kind of strange I know, but there's something about this suit that I just love. I've tried it on and it fits really well, and I have a friend who has this and totally rocked it (love you L Roons).
|Palma Sola Bandeau & Surf Hipster by Trina Turk|
I think my favorite suits are from Trina Turk. They immediately bring to mind thoughts of a fabulous tropical vacation. I love the fun bright colors, patterns and interesting details. I want this one piece too.
|Ralph Lauren Sport Halter Bikini|
Love the girly ruffles on this simple black suit.
|Purple Frill Bandeau Bikini from Topshop|
More ruffles, but I am crazy about this deep purple color and the bandeau style top.
|Swimsuit from H&M|
This one has a sassy back and it's only $14.99.
|Plaid Suit from H&M|
I really like the plaid colors on this one, and once again, it's only $18.
|Navy Plaited Strap Triangle Bikini from Topshop|
This nautical suit makes me want to be on a sailboat.
|Ruffle Trim Suit from Victoria's Secret|
I'm a big fan of white bathing suits. Even if I'm not quite tan enough to wear them, and there's always the slightest fear they'll be see-thru.
|Salinas Striped Suit from Victoria's Secret|
LOVE this one.
|ANK Heart Bandeau Top and Bottom from Victoria's Secret|
You can't go wrong with hearts in my book. Well sometimes. But not with this one.
|Leopard Suit from Victoria's Secret|
Animal print suit = basically a necessity.
I might have gotten a little carried away. But that just goes to show you how badly I was in need of a warm distraction. And now I have lots of ideas for summer suits!
Think sunny thoughts and stay warm! And if you live somewhere warm, I don't want to hear about it, unless you're inviting me there :) xoxo
