One Piece Swimwear

I have been loving one-pieces this year. I don’t usually wear them, but I actually bought some this year because I think they are so much cuter than they used to be. When I would think one-piece I would think of my ugly swim team stuff that was uncomfortable and ugly or total “mom” styles, but now they come in the cutest patterns and styles…there’s vintage 20’s, and cutouts, or a simple sleek black…you can get anything you want now. I think it’s great to have one on hand for those tricky times when you don’t want to be running around in a bikini from front of say your boss?! or maybe a new boyfriend’s conservative family. So for those of you that want more coverage or just want to do something different every now and again you have tons of cute styles to choose from. Here are some of my favorites this year!

I can’t decide which print I like better! I love the 80’s feel of these! (If you’re not loving the print, but like the style, they have it in a plain black here as well)- revolveclothing.comB.Swim Back It Up Monokini

Gowns Galore!

O how I wish I had somewhere to wear these beautiful gowns. Every year around Christmas (or around the Oscars) I just die over gorgeous dresses like these. However, I do not have any sort of reason to go to galas, or art openings, or fabulous awards ceremonies…sigh. So I just lust over them and maybe someday…right?

Lace Dresses at Saks!

Sometimes I just love to look at gorgeous dresses and think of all of the places I could wear them and the shoes I would wear them with…but then I remember I just sit in an office all day doing loans 🙁 Haha, but every now and again I get to go to a fun wedding or party, so I like to look just in case. 🙂
