Monroe

Unique Vintage Black Ruffled Cap Sleeve Frida Swim Top All Black Monroe High Waist Bikini Bottom

I'm not going to lie: this post is over six years in the making.  Even in my pre-baby years, I never once thought about posting pictures of myself in a swimsuit.  I never used to do activities that required me to wear a swimsuit!  Now that I'm a mom, I have a little ball of energy pleading me to take her to the pool almost everyday.  Thankfully, Unique Vintage carries an endless amount of swim goodies that not only hide my insecurities, but highlight my assets as well.  Who knew a simple swimsuit could evoke such confidence!

I was initially attracted to the Frida swim top because of the shoulder ruffles.  As someone who rarely shows off their arms, this was the perfect top for me.  It ties up in the front, but has adjustable straps and a tie in the back as well.  It really ensures the perfect fit.  There is a matching swim bottom, but I just couldn't wait to pair it up with the Monroe.  I love the gathering and the high waist of the Monroe swim bottoms, it's perfect for ladies who like to keep the focus off their tummy and highlight their waist.  The Monroe bottoms come in tons of colors and prints, in case you're not crazy about black or you like to mix and match.  I took a size small in both the top and bottoms and I think they fit quite well.  If you're particularly busty, I'd probably suggest sizing up in the top.  Otherwise, I would consider both these pieces to be true to size.  Thanks to this wonderful swimsuit and the crazy hot weather we're already having, I have a feeling this suit is going to get a lot of use this summer!

I've been itching to find a part-time job.  Now that BB is three, I feel like it's important for her to have interactions with someone other than her parents.  I've been looking into day care facilities, but they're just so expensive.  Not only do I need to find part-time work, but I need to find something that will cover the cost of day care (and a little more so it's worth it).  I've been looking but it's now clear that this will be a lot harder than I anticipated.  Keep those positive thoughts coming my way, I'm going to need them!

  1. You look fantastic! I saw this swim top on their website recently and thought it looked awesome; but now I love it even more since seeing it on you. I wonder if I could get away with it or if it would broaden my shoulders too much... x
