 Are there other ladies out there who despise bathing suit shopping as much as me?

 

 

I was in St. Thomas last week, and as I wore my old bathing suits,  I decided to make it a priority to find a few I felt comfortable in for the next beach trip.

 

 

 I thought I would share a few that stood out to me.  Hopefully, you too will see something that you like and makes you feel good.  Prices range from $39 to $225.

1 Ted Baker Plunge One Piece Swimsuit $139  This plunging neckline, one-piece swimsuit is a classic that is also daring. Available in three colors, though you can never go wrong with black. Buy here.

 

2.  Robin Piccone Harper Cover-Up Tunic $98 Airy and easy for the beach is this semi-sheer cover up. I love that it has the open shoulder, which is a popular look this season.  Buy here.

 

3.  Ted Baker Ruffle One-Piece $169 This asymmetrical ruffle suit is unique yet classic.  To me, it looks more expensive than it is.  Buy here.

 

4. L Space Ridin’ High Serina Rib Bikini Top and Bottoms $183  Still rockin’ the bikini?  Sleek and simple with a stylish high neck top, this is a good one. With people mixing bikinis these days, you can always put the top with bottoms that offer more coverage if needed.  Buy the pieces here and here.

6. Halogen Straw Panama Hat $39 The older I become, the more important I realize it is to cover my face while in the sun.  I am not a sun goddess-my white skin gives me away.  A hat has become a must have for me while at the beach or the pool, and  I love how the versatility (and price) of this one.  Buy here.

15. MiracleSuit Jena One-Shoulder One-Piece $162 This is my favorite bathing suit in this post, and I plan on ordering it myself.  I love how it isn’t a full one piece, but it gives more coverage than a bikini.  It also looks more expensive than its price point.  Buy here.

 

 

Let me know what you think of these options and if any appeal to you.  Hopefully, the next time you see me at the beach, I will look a little more stylish than my past trip.

Finding Inspiration In Your Surroundings

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

What inspires me?

One day, it may be the mixing of textures such as iron and raw wood, and on another, it may be a picture or something I come across in nature.

Lately, I have been inspired by subtle details that take a room from pretty to fabulous. Notice how paying attention to the particulars can make such a difference in a space.

Are you familar with the website, www.pinterest.com ? If not, browse through when you have some time as you will find your own inspiration.

1.  Nailheads. Nailheads are modern, chic, and a great way to customize a piece.  Here are some great examples of how they can add just the right touch.

the nailheads MAKE this settee (from http://eclecticrevisited.wordpress.com/)

This room is just gorgeous to me.  I love how it looks like the items in the room have been collected over time, but don’t be fooled…. the attention to detail is there.   Look at the nailhead design on the loveseat, the banding on the drapes, and even the strategic placement of the books.  This room makes me want to curl up and read one.

Who doesn’t need a bulletin board in an office space?   The nailhead detail here makes a common item look a little more finished and unique.

2.  Chevrons – From throws to dresses to fabrics, the chevron pattern is everywhere.  Here it is as an area rug, and notice how much the pattern (and color!) adds to the room.

3. Patterned wood — Wood is a classic I love to incorporate into my interiors when possible, as there is nothing quite like it.  The texture and patina of an old piece of wood is hard to replicate.

Notice the impact of the wood on the ceiling in this room?  I love how they have carried what looks like rough sawn wood from the ceiling down one wall, while adding painted wood paneling to the room.  Beautiful! I cannot wait for the perfect space to incorporate this idea.

4.  Lots of light – Windows, window, and more windows!  Aren’t they beautiful? Why?  Because natural light equates instant beauty.

…and here’s a combination of light and amazing wood detail to give you an idea of what stunning looks like:

I hope you’ve been as inspired as I have by these ideas and photographs.    I see so much creativity out there, and it’s fun to share.  Tell me, what inspires you?
