Swimsuit Season is Here...

Here in the US, the unofficial beginning of summer was celebrated yesterday on Memorial Day. Which means...pools open and we pull out the swimsuits. Or try to find new ones! I was looking through J.Crew's June 2010 catalog, and found some lovelies:

I absolutely adore the seersucker in No. 1 and No. 2, and the little floral embellishment on the bikini bottom is the icing on the cake. Orange is such a fun color to wear by the pool too! I wanted to show you No. 3 because I have this thing for polka dots, and we all are loving turquoise this year. I threw in the hat because I've been eyeing cool hats while I'm out and about, but the only hats I ever wear are baseball caps and cold weather knitted ones. Normally I will try anything different stylewise, but for some reason I just don't think I can pull off a straw hat. Can you or will you?

Here again is another hat, this time a Panama hat with a more masculine feel. What do you think? This straw tote is perfect for carrying a book, your towel, sunglasses, and sunblock with you, and it coordinates perfectly with a purple halter bathing suit. Pulling it all together are these delicate bejeweled flip-flops. Love it!

This summer, my husband and I are not going south for vacation so there is not so much need to buy a new bathing suit (especially considering the number I already have! haha!). Actually, instead we are heading up north to Toronto! We've never been, do you have any suggestions on what to do, where to stay? Have a great Tuesday!
