My blogging buddy Jessica Turner wrote a powerful post earlier this summer called “Put on that Swimsuit,” encouraging moms to put aside negative self image in favor of creating summertime memories with our kids. Swimsuit season is tough. Whose body hasn’t seen better days? I don’t even like to wear sleeveless clothing but I wholeheartedly agree with Jessica’s sentiments and am never one to miss out on a good time. Besides, there are endless swimsuit and cover-up options to flatter all body types.

I chose my swimsuit again this year from SwimSpot. I love the selection and being able to see the models walk in the suits gives me a better idea of how they’ll fit. I’m two for two and still wearing last year’s too. This splendid tankini can be worn as a bikini or with a racerback tank for when I want more coverage, am playing with the kids, etc. PS: it’s now on sale.

The gorgeous caftan is from Helen Jon and I’ve literally been living in it all summer. So much so it’s not holding up as well as I would like but I would buy it in a heartbeat because it’s lightweight and just the perfect summer piece. I’m thrilled to discover Helen Jon’s unique line of swim and resort wear. Really chic stuff. Please someone buy this one-piece!

What have you been wearing to the beach/pool this summer?

Have a glamorous week!

I have been going a little risque this summer with see through this and that and bikinin here and there…but I REALLY NEED a cute tankini like yours..for days when I am JUST being crazy mom…I cannot lie, my bikini top almost CAMe OFF the other day at the pool. Preston untied the top when I was holding him and didn’t notice..WHAT WHAT! That would have been quite the let down for the men at the pool, hahahaha.
