Swim time is here!

Email This Post March 24th, 2008 nicky

I realize this may be a slap in the face for those of you who received the gift of snow this past Easter weekend, but it is already 90 here and I am dying to swim. For us Arizonans, it’s that dreaded time of year when we have to decide whether to resurrect last year’s suit or trade in for a new one. I absolutely hate swim wear shopping, can I get an amen? In my book, it’s up there with bra shopping on the list of evil mall experiences. But this year I don’t care as much. Since my belly is growing by the week, I have to purchase a hideous maternity swim suit. I’m fine as long as it fits! But if I wasn’t “with child” I would be in the market for a new suit this year thanks to the little holes in my current suit’s bottoms (cursed pebble tec pool floors!) My style of choice is the halter tankini for two reasons. It hides a less than flat tummy without looking too matronly and the halter top straps in an ample chest with support. I usually spend a bit more on my swim wear compared to cheaper options at places like Target and Old Navy since a higher quality is needed for our long AZ swim seasons. Here’s three tankinis at Nordstrom that I love the look of:

Top, $88.00. Bottoms, $50.00.
swim1.jpg I love how chic this swim suit from ViX Swimwear is! My only fear is the enamel accents may turn into burning torture devices in the Phoenix sun!
Top, $94.00. Bottoms, $82.00
swim3.jpg I had no clue Jessica Simpson made cute swimwear. Love the graphic print and sash on the bottoms!
Top, $56.00. Bottoms, $44.00

    How about 2 pieces made for someone with an ample behind…like me! I always see the sute tank-ini’s but the bottoms are always too small!
