Splashin’ n Stylin’.
When you live in a city like Austin, you are gonna spend a lot of time at, in, and around water. Sure we were voted one of the fittest city, but it’s honestly more of a tactic of survival. Because unless you are sitting under the strongest air conditioner EVER, the water is the only way to cool off. And in a city that stays hot for more than just the summer months, you are gonna need a cute enough bathing suit that will last just as long. So here’s my splashin’ look book of my newest suit.
First stop in my suit was to my favorite local pool, Deep Eddy. It’s a nice size pool and it’s run with fresh lake water, plus it’s right up the road from my house.
With a sweet baby blue color and a 20’s-inspired-cut for the top, my bathing suit went perfectly with my light-wash high-waisted jean shorts.
And when I was done in the pool, but still wanted a little something to cover up in. I ditched the shorts and strutted my high-waisted bathing suit bottoms and my nice flowy white kimono.
Next stop was another one of my favorite water spots, Lady Bird lake. With my cousin visiting from out-of-town, I had to take her to enjoy a relaxing Texas morning paddle boarding on the water.
My baby blue textured suit was perfect for this outing too with its high waisted-bottoms taking the place of shorts. All I needed was a pair of mock Birks to spare my feet from the hot docks and I was ready to hop on board.
And once aboard, the suit did not upset. I felt cute, cool, and comfortable. It’s always tricky finding a top small enough for my chest size and a bottom that provides enough coverage, because we all know when you are out on the board the last thing you want is to feel weighed down by extra clothes or paranoid about people getting too much of a view.
Because at the end of the day nothings better than a morning on the lake with one of your favorite cousins, feelin’ good and lookin’ good.
My fellow Texans, we might have a few more heated weeks, so whatever suit you strut just make sure you stay splashin’ and stylin’.
