Favorite Modest Swimsuits

cute and feminine modest swimsuits

Swimsuits are so much fun these days - and I never would have thought I'd ever say that, even back in the day when I was in way better swimsuit shape.  Their are SO many styles, prints, patterns, and with modest styles being the preferred (for sun-safety number one) and most in-style option of them all.  I love how swimsuits are now an extension of summer outfits, and some you can even easily wear as a top with the appropriate bottoms.

My long-time favorite one piece is this strapless and ruched number that comes in many colors and sizes (regular, long-torso, D and DD cup).

Love this strapless, ruche one-piece with a fun design and pattern (I can see it being a really cute top for pool/beach to happy hour wear).

This stripe with solid side one-piece comes in lots of different patterns, and I love the feminine and flirty cut with the sliming structure and patterns.

If it's stripe you're looking for, I love this stripe + mesh version that draws the eye up!

If you are moving into a one-piece from two-piece territory for the first time, you might try a cute cut-out one that is sort of the best of both worlds!

I love the bold colors and geo-design of this one piece suit - and have it in my cart right now (do I really need another suit?!?). I saw Rebecca from Mommy in Heels trying it on in her IG Stories and loved it right away.

A site I love for two-pieces (yes, TWO!) is Lime Rickie - they have high-waisted and cute peplum tops for a look that still covers you up!  
Even more suits I love can be found below!  Happy swimming...

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

A few weekends ago we went to our first baseball game of the season (as a family).  Luck would have it, it started raining top of the 2nd inning, and after a 2 hour delay packed with snacks and lunch to keep us all occupied, they started back up again for us only to make it through the 4th inning!  Regardless of the very little actual baseball we got to watch, the kids LOVED eating all the peanuts.  And Liam will take watching any amount of baseball that he can get. ;)
 Liam and I, and for a little bit, Nora, also wore matching baseball shoes that were gifted to us, which Liam got a big kick out of. Nora's were a tad big for her, so she'll be ready to wear them next year (I love that her size has velcro!).  Mine, which you can't see, were actually customized to be KC Royals with a little logo on the outside of the shoe - back by the heel.  They were really cute, and now my friends are all ready to borrow mine for their own games.

Favorite Wears: Summer Work Attire

Summer work outfit for hot days and cold air conditioner 

Summer work wear is the hardest for me to get right without looking frumpy or boring. It's hot outside, freezing around certain parts of the office and a bit warmer at my desk because I'm by some windows.  It's all about light pieces with coverage and an easy tag-along layer for me.   

I'm especially loving the wide leg cropped pant trend right now, because it's the perfect amount of coverage to keep the frost from the air conditioning at bay, while easy and breezy to let the heat out.  And a lace top is the perfect shirt.  It provides coverage but with longs of airy holes. :) When that's not warm enough, I always grab my denim jacket to keep on hand.

What are your mixed temperature summer work attire outfit tips?

P.S. this purse is one of my Nordstrom half yearly sales purchases and it's the perfect everyday size and style. It's sold out right now across most sites, but found it here if you're interested!  Here are a few similar ones, too: smaller version herein cherry wood (on sale!), and shoulder version.
