Waitin’ for Pool Time

Swimsuit: Kewl Shop (c/o) // Top: Gap // Skirt: old // Hat: Sun & Shine // Sandals: Forever 21

This time of year I am dying to get in the pool and splash around with the little one.  To say we love to swim is an understatement..  Last summer we were literally at the pool 3 days a week for the entire season.  It’s our favorite warm weather past time, which works out well since we live in the desert and it’s usually eighty plus degrees from April to September.  When we headed to Santa Fe last weekend I assumed we would spend at least half a day playing in the pool, but sadly the resort doesn’t open the pool until May, so we dipped in the hot tub instead.

You guys know I love the Kewl Shop’s bandage dresses, so I was excited to give their bandage swimwear line a try.  I choose this traditional purple swimsuit, that pairs effortlessly with everything including a chambray top or peasant skirt.  It would also look great with a sheer white or black cover-up for the warmer months.  The bandage fabric reflects the sun perfectly and gives a glowing effect, which makes it a gorgeous tanning suit compared to the traditional swimwear fabrics.  The Kewl Shop has several dramatic swimsuits in the line and also a few beautiful traditional bikinis, which are perfect for lounging by the pool.

Tip: size down when you buy a bandage dress, but order your true size  for a bandage swimsuit as the fabric loosens when it’s wet and works much better as a tanning suit

    Uh la la that bikini looks amazing on you! What a bummer that they didn’t open the pool before May. We can swim outside over here the whole year even in winter. Although I have to admit that I prefer the hot tub. I’m glad we inspired you to make beauty posts. I think fashion & beauty belongs together and I’m looking forward to see your post. Your makeup is always flawless 😀

      Ahhhh….you make me blush! I am so jealous that you guys can swim year round. I sure wish we could. I definitely agree that fashion and beauty belong together. As I develop my style, I’ve been drawn not only to clothes but learning make-up and hair tricks. Thanks for stopping by!
