how to style a swimsuit in five steps.

we are home from Mexico and had the best time with rewardStyle, LikeToKnow.It, and the Fairmont Mayakoba! i will be posting a full review of our trip in a few days, but first i wanted to share one of my favorite swim looks i wore while there. i pretty much was in a swimsuit the entire week! it was super hot & humid, so even when we went hiking we all wore our swimsuits. the best way to vacay, in my opinion!

in today’s post, i thought i’d share with you how i like to style a swimsuit. now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with pulling on your suit and diving straight into the pool! but if you’re staying at a resort and having a sit down lunch {or if you’re wanting to look a little boujee, haha!}, this is an example of how i’d rock a suit. plus, i don’t know about you, but i prefer to be pulled together and feeling my absolute best in a swimsuit even if i am just loungin’!

1. confidence is key!
the first thing i put on every morning: confidence! anyone can rock a swimsuit, just put it on and let the real you shine. everyBODY is a swimsuit body!

2. add a fun coverup
in today’s look, i wrapped a citrus print sarong around my waist. in this swimsuit look, i chose denim shorts! whatever you choose, it’s a fun way to layer and make your swimsuit attire a little more stylish. i also wore a coverup dress like this while in Mexico too!

3. accessorize with jewelry and a straw hat/bag
i’ve been super into statement earrings, like this pineapple pair, and layering lots of dainty pieces too. it’s an easy way to give your swim look some pizzaz and of course easy to take off if you’re going to take a dip! i’m not wearing a hat in these photos, but i couldn’t resist a fun pom pom straw tote! makes for a cute beach bag.

4. dress it up with fun shoes
these pineapple heels were a bit of a splurge {are you seeing the theme now, haha!}, but i know i’ll wear them on all of our tropical trips in the future! i also packed these ruffle sandals and these bow sandals too.

5. a pop of lipstick
you probably know by now that i can’t ever resist a fun pop of color! i wear lots of bright reds, pinks, and oranges in the summer with my swimwear. it’s a great way to exude those summertime vibes!
