Ok, I have to be honest…. I’m not a beachy type of person, but I do love the water. Well, small bodies of water. Being that I don’t spend my summer days lounging out on the beach, owning bathing suits really wasn’t a thing for me. BUT when I heard Goodwill is carrying NWT suits- I HAD TO GET ONE (especially being that they were only $7.99). Ok, I bought two……
I live a pretty minimal lifestyle, so even my bathing suit has to do double duty work for me. I want to be able to take my pool/lakeside look and go out to brunch with my friends or even run some errands. If I can do that, then I don’t have to run home and change. Which simplifies my life.
Here are 5 Tips to Transition your Suit from BEACH to BRUNCH!
• Find a suit you love (Duh). I like to wear one piece because I feel that they fit my body type the best but two-piece suits work also. Think crop top + high waisted mom jeans.
• You want to style it with something you are comfortable in. I’m my most comfortable in a flowing material- I paired my suit with a pair of culottes. Easy transition; they slide right over my suit and didn’t take up much room in my bag.
• Shoes complete your look and pull it together. Stay away from flip-flops. The point is to move away from the “I was just at the beach look.” Pair your look with a sandal or strappy heel. I picked my chunky heels because they’re so comfortable and I had A LOT of walking to do.
• FINALLY: add some cute accessories or a structured bag. It will add a chic summer feel.
