One of my favorite things about being a blog follower is how the experience goes from just following along to eventually feeling like you are taking advice from a friend. As a result of my love for blogs, I have purchased clothes, tried hair styles, decorated mantles, read books, organized my office, discovered health tricks, and become inspired in countless ways! Reading about a solution that an everyday person, just like me, finds enriching to their lives has been really helpful – so here on HALF I thought I would get in on the info sharing action and include a weekly favorites post! Each week I will share one of my favorites things! The topic areas will range from favorite clothes to organizing solutions to health tricks. Really anything that I feel we just can’t live without – or would really not want to – at the Bessette home and maybe you can find something you love too!
And this post is for the ladies….. the buds are starting to bloom, the sun is staying out a little longer, when you wake up the birds are chirping and summer is knocking on the door…. drum roll please… it’s bathing suit season!!! Oh yes- the most loved season by women everywhere-said no one ever!! Maybe it’s how you feel about body… maybe it’s the ordeal of shopping… maybe it’s the realization that a suit you feel good in could cost you $$$$ and you can’t just add a sweater and call it an office look too?!?!?!? No matter your feeling it can be a tough topic when it comes to shopping, but today friends I am sharing my diamond in the rough: the perfect bathing suit.
No matter what a pain in the butt the bathing suit thing is- I love summer and can’t deny that an afternoon bathing in the sun with a cold drink and good read is one of my favorite things in this whole wide world!! So finding a suit I am comfortable in has been key. My criteria has become – structured fit, allows movement and wear laying still or chasing after my pup, and provides a way for good sun exposure (an x- tanning bed queen, I still have to get my tan fix somewhere). This past summer I knew I had to really get a good one because we were going to a dog beach…. and I knew to control Quinlan I had to have something that I could really move in… enter the most brilliant shopper I know, my mom! She lent me her suit and in the words of Danny “and Mara for the bathing suit win”! It was perfect: awesome structure, super flattering, and trendy…. I was in love!
For the 4 days we spent at Atlantic Beach, I lived in this suit. Even running to get coffee I just threw it on with a cute coverup. I felt so comfortable because of the good structure, perfect coverage, and (let’s be honest) the ease to hit the ladies room- it was my favorite beach accessory. So if you are in the market for a suit and hoping to feel a little more freedom to soak up the sun and not wonder what is hanging out or not in place – check out Chadwick’s bathing suit- and bonus it is on sale right now!
Summer is right around the corner friends and this can be good news once again…. just be sure to grab your new favorite suit!
Thanks so much for reading and remember to make it a great day!
