You know summer is right around the corner when you walk into Target and the swimsuits are all out…
We’re getting ready for our little “spring break” trip in just a few months and I’m trying to get organized early so I don’t over-pack. This means really narrowing down suits and finding pieces that can work for day and night. Target get’s in new swimwear every month, did you know that? So, I figured I would just start with one and then go back and do a final check to see what they have right before our vacation. This trip I found a suit that I really love, it’s plain but it’s strappy details make it anything but boring.
Simple and strappy is a huge trend I’ve seen in designer swimwear and Target has a a bunch of great options to chose from this season, that are all super affordable. I also went with a mix and match color scheme by pairing the black top with it’s matching bottom but in a bright, coral color. I love to mix and match and Target makes it really easy and fun to do since you are able to purchase separates.
Adhering to my normal styling preferences, I planned to pack super casual and comfortable looks for our trip. Usually while on vacation, my day look is a little more dressed up and “glam,” before my hair’s filled with salt water and sand. We might only have one day to hit the beach during our trip so I plan to arrive in style and then slowly loosen things up as the day goes on. I’ve packed some cool pieces that I also found at Target that will help me make the transition as the day goes on. The great thing about a simple bathin gsuit is that you can really have fun with accessorizing.
I picked up a graphic tank top that lets the cool straps on my suit to peek out perfectly. Then rather than a basic pair of denim shorts, I found a cute pair of embroidered, black shorts that are a little more dressed up but still super comfortable and beachy. Paired with a wide-brim hat, embellished sandals and retro-style sunglasses, I plan to cruise around in this during bike rides, photo ops and cute lunches during the day.
As the day goes on, and temperatures cool down, I love to just be in my bathing-suit and I found a cool, light-weight hoodie to just throw on over my suit. And with a simple switch of sunnies and shoes – to a colored, mirrored aviator style and tan espadrilles – really casuals up the look for a chill night. What do you think of my glam-to-casual swim look? I think it’s going to be perfect for the day we have planned. And I love that I was able to get it all in one clean swoop at Target!
