It dawned on me this morning that the summer is halfway over! I spent the entire month of June inside a hospital, so I decided to take my suits out for a spin today. I can't just have one swimsuit like I can't have one pair of shoes or one jacket. Still, I'm a single woman on a budget. I can never understand when people post about these fabulous suits that cost hundreds of dollars. I don't know anyone who can afford that. My most expensive suit cost $89, and that was a super splurge for me. My cheapest one was $14 total.
Also, can we talk about how awkward it is to be alone and taking photos of yourself?? I need to be transparent here! I'm not a blogger with the luxury of someone taking photos of me. Selfies and a timer are all I've got! Every once in a while when I can rope my best friend into taking photos you'll be in for a real treat. ;)
I started off in my room with my messy pile of suits on my bed. This suit is from J. Crew Factory for $32. It's such a great option to find higher-end pieces for half price.
This headless photo is of my original J. Crew splurge suit. I got it several years ago before I went on a Vegas poolside trip with a new boyfriend. Oooh la la. Similar style available here.
I don't mess around with flip flops. These Adidas Cloudfoam slides are well worth the $35 price tag. Just like the name suggests they're like walking on clouds. I kid you not.
Here is as showy as I get with skin! I'm at an age where high-waisted bottoms are a blessing. These are from Old Navy and are on sale right now! I got the top back in October when my mom and I found ourselves in Palm Springs without suits. We stumbled into American Eagle and scoured the clearance racks. $7 for the top and $7 for matching bottoms. Boom. Similar style here on sale as well.
