It’s never too late for a swim round-up! When I was in LA for work, I made the most of using my parent’s pool. Lying back and squinting up at the palm trees. You won’t believe how many swimsuits I have. Neoprene. White. Retro. Classic. Psychadelic. Oh, and I live in NYC…a place you’ll rarely whip out a bikini unless you somehow end up in a car to the Montauk (on a good day). I packed them all for my California adventures. I miss having my hair wet, and chilling on our row of white chairs, shaded by a high brick wall. That lazy “I’ve had way too much sun” high. This white two-piece is by cult Australian label, Traingl Swimwear. Neoprene, and the whitest of white, it’s the best with a tan and soem good waves. The one-piece happens to be by local NY designers of Estuaries. I met them on the 4th of July and fell in LOVE with this “shorts” one-piece, reminding me of the best beach bums of the time….Brigette Bardot and Marilyn Monroe, all rockin’ the short shorts. And last but not least, the adorable Mary Grace blue suit…the tiniest of all, with a Mexican tile print, that could easily take me to Tulum and back. These babies are going to have to wait till next year to come out and play. UNLESS that island adventure we’re talking about still fits in our schedules. We’ll see! I’d have no problem throwing one of these on again.
