bathing beauties

I’m so ready for summer! Not that I’m super-amped to get into a swimsuit, but I’m ready to laze away the afternoons in the swimming pool.

However, if I must be seen at the pool or beach, I’m thinking this little number from J.Crew will be it for me. I’m in need of a new swimsuit; mine have seen better days!
And if I were a bikini-sporting girl, which I am so not, I would be wearing this one, also from J.Crew. I’m loving the twisty top!
