The Swimsuit You Need :: White High-Waisted Bikini

I’m a big fan of color, which is why this blog is called Color & Chic. However, every once in a while I do love neutrals, especially white. I have a big soft spot for a good white bikini, particularly a white high-waisted bikini. The pom poms on this bikini really add a fun touch but aren’t too much to where this bikini will be out of style soon. This is the swimsuit you need this summer because it’s a classic with a twist. The triangle top is flattering, even for smaller busts. While the high-waisted bikini is great for lengthening the legs and slimming you down. I’m wearing an XS in both the top and bottoms. The top fits well and would certainly still work for those who are more endowed than me. The bottoms are a perfect fit, too! This high-waisted bikini definitely fits true to size.

In the Big Waves :: High-Waisted Swimsuit

Hello Everyone! It’s no surprise I love spending time at the beach and enjoying everything Coastal Virginia has to offer. We get some big waves every once in a while, but the waves in these photos are huge! I could see them right when I turned off Pacific. What was cool was even though the waves were pretty crazy, once they rolled in they were smooth. However, this makes for great photos without me actually getting soaked!

Albion Fit sent me this adorable light purple high-waisted swimsuit and I couldn’t wait to wear it. Living by the beach allows me to expand on my swimsuit collection and I’m loving high-waisted bottoms! Albion Fit has a huge collection of more conservatively cut swimsuits that are still fun, fresh and trendy. You may remember this navy striped swimsuit from a few months back.

Beach Day :: Darlin’ Cover-up Dress + White Swimsuit

More than a year into my move to Coastal Virginia, I like to think my beach style is where it needs to be. One of the things I’ve learned is to have fuss-free outfits. That’s why I love this darling Draper James cover-up dress. Y’all this dress is next level, especially for the beach or the pool. I love the airy cotton voile fabric along with the delicate lattice inset trim. It’s a looser fit, which is great for taking on and off with a swimsuit underneath. There aren’t any zippers, so I’m very impressed with the ease of getting this dress on and off. However, it also gently skims over the body and has shape. The charming blue color is like a quintessential beach or pool color. Plus, this Draper James cover-up dress is lined, so you can wear any swimsuit underneath without it showing through! 

P.S. this look is featured on Love, Reese, which is Reese Witherspoon’s blog. It’s a place for her to share what she loves most about the South, so I would love it if you check it out!

The Bikini Worth Splurging On :: Luxe One Shoulder

Hello My Beautiful Friends! I love the feeling a good swimsuit can give you. When I’m wearing a swimsuit I love, I feel confident, a little bit sexy and ready to soak up the sun. You may recognize this bikini from this previous post. However, I want to talk about it in depth because this bikini is definitely on the pricier side and I want to give a full review.
