Greetings from Jamaica, where I am currently enjoying the warm weather, sunshine, and escape from reality. As I am mainly lounging around, I went on a swimsuit hunt before the trip. And lo and behold, I found this GEM and I am so in love with it that I am actually posting pictures of myself in a bathing suit (as cropped as possible) on the internet. Watch out, world wide web! This swimsuit is from Mochi — everything this line carries is hip, unique, versatile, colorful and fun. I can’t wait to buy more from them!
This suit is from All Things Mochi and is a mixture of swimsuit material and crochet. I love all the details and pops of color, little hidden treasures in a swimsuit.
I love twofers (when there are multiple uses for an item); a reversible jacket, a double sided pen, tinted glasses (actually I don’t like that), Taco Tuesday / Cinco de Mayo falling on the same day, and the best, a SLEEPSHIRT THAT IS ALSO A BATHING SUIT COVER-UP. Win win win!

The Kiini bikini! This new popular all-over-the-place bikini is completely mainstream, but I am hopping on the bandwagon. Obsessed! I love the look, the colors, the vibe. This crochet bikini is handmade, so no two are alike. The classic triangle form is the perfect shape and the material embodies the bohemian Josie Girl vibe. What is not to love?
Crochet form. (Note: this is inside out — the tag should be inside and not showing)
Not that I am in any position to wear or buy a swimsuit, but I am still coveting several Natori swim items from this season S/S 2012. This past March, I bought the Leopard Bandeau Bikini and tried my hardest to rock the look 8 months pregnant in the Caribbean (don’t worry — no pictures of me in the bikini were taken or will be shown). The fit was absolutely perfect and uber comfortable, too. Once I get my hands on something I like, my tendency is to start hoarding…. so, it looks like I am going to have to get some more suits (but save them for next year…because I sure am not going out in public bearing my post-pregnancy belly anytime soon.) These suits are too good to pass on!
Swimsuit Bikini: Dara Print Dragon Bandeau
I am head-over-heels in love with the Dara Print Dragon Bandeau Swimsuit. I love the bright colors, the print, the coverage on the tush, and the cut of the top. I honestly feel that this style of suit is one of the best on the market. For reals. The straps on the top are removable, so you can wear it like a bandeau without any tan lines.
