I really was a fashion major.

In Search of the Perfect One-Piece

New Jersey is currently in the middle of a snow storm, which seems like the perfect time to start thinking about summer! I'm 22 and hate showing off my body on the beach. I used to wear skimpy two pieces just because everyone else was and being petite (4'10") I could pull them off. Now that I'm a few years older, I don't want everything "hanging out". I want a classier look, but still young and fun.

I purchased a black and white polka dot one-piece last year by Tommy Bahama. It is the best bathing suit I've ever had. But come on, a girl needs options!

1. Betsey Johnson. Of course I admire this designer because of her fun patterns, but her one pieces are also super adorable!

2. Trina Tur. This print is gorgeous, shape is adorable, and it has a matching cover up.

3. Modcloth. This site is my go-to site for great looking, classic clothing. I haven't ordered anything yet, but my eyes have been on the site for the past few years.

And Then Sun One Piece- modcloth

And Then Sun One Piece. From Fables by Barrie. I love the colors and the chevron middle. It's like Barbie's Original Swimsuit, modernized.

Splashed With Color One Piece - modcloth

Splashed with Color One Piece.  This might be my favorite. Reminds me of a swimsuit I had when I was little. It's funny because at age 7, I hated florals and at 22 I can't get enough.

4. Shabby Apple. Another great site for beautiful, classy clothing. I also love that their stuff comes in XS.

Umbrella Sky. Great Color and adorable bottom ruffle!


I would love them all, unfortunately the budget won't let me. These are a few choices for now but there is still plenty of time to find others. There are more on my pinterest board (I keep adding more). Of course, I could always make my own…
