The Day Tripper One-Piece Swimsuit
This weekend we are heading to the lake to celebrate the 4th of July. I can not wait!
I was sick (again) this past week. My energy and usually happy-go-lucky outlook at an all time low… whooooo gets a cold in the summer?! So I’ve been trying to reel it in, take it slow. BUT – I must say, I’m so ready for fireworks under the stars, family BBQs and laughs shared around the campfire (and maybe a trip to the local fruit farm to pick up more of these mouth-watering peaches! They would be divine sitting on the edge of a day-drink or two!)
Lake time also means beach time, which also means: SWIM TIME! I can’t be the only one who gets excited about playing in the water?! I am SO game for jumping off the boat, riding the jet ski (Laura Croft style,) kayaking in the morning mist, and flinging the kids from the swan float in one pounce! This means I get super excited when I find quite possibly THE most perfect swimsuit brand known to womankind.
Swimsuit shopping is probably one of my favorites… and least favorites. It’s hard to strip down and take a long look in the mirror and not critique – I actually avoid the “what my head in the mirror says” and go with what feels cute and comfortable.
Each summer I like to indulge in one new luxury piece of quality swimwear. I have a drawer full suits that are mostly for fun, and over all inexpensive. I like to keep a few around for weekends on the boat, and for when we hang out at my parents hot tub come winter. While expensive swimwear might not be in everyone’s budget, I say it’s ok the splurge when you find one that makes you feel fabulous (and let’s you bend over and to fill up the kids beach bucket for the 1,000th time.)
Have you heard of Albion Fit? Let me share.
I had my eye on this sweet suit since March and picked out as a Mother’s Day gift. It’s a bit more than I would usually shell out for a suit, but I will literally live in this all summer up at the lake (and in the backyard kiddie pool – lets be real.) It’s perfect for playing in the sand with the kids. Which makes me believe it must have been designed by a knowing mama. While I love regular swim bottoms for achieving maximum tan, I much prefer retro high waisted! They have that vintage flair and keep you feeling covered, while giving the illusion of long lean legs. What I especially adore about this suit is the higher neckline. Like I mentioned, it makes bending over, catching a wave, or chasing after a little one easy and carefree. Not to mention the darling print! Peach and white stripes with a clementine floral will make a summer glow sing. Add the double bow tie at the back and you’ve got that feminine feeling I love so much. Albion swimmer comes fully lined (with a built-in shelf bra) plus this one has a removable halter strap if you want to avoid tan lines. Cute and covered and just as every bit charming.
Albion has a beautiful selection of swimwear options that are flattering, uncomplicated, and fitness/leisure friendly. It’s practical! Which is not always my first choice! LOL, but I love when I find it in a garment that makes me feel gorgeous.
I can’t wait to ride out summer chasing those tropical sunsets in this chic and timeless one-piece.
