A couple summers ago I decided to let go of my post-baby body hangups. Like many new moms, I struggled quite a bit with my body mage after my baby girl was born. No matter how you slice it, your body is just different after it brings a kiddo into the world. And it took a while before I recognized that different doesn't necessarily mean worse, it just means different...plain and simple. And what's so bad about that? Not a thing.
With my newfound body acceptance came a slew of new summer styling opportunities! Plus, by not wanting to put on a swimsuit, for instance, I had been missing out on much of the fun summer brings with it. Hey, there are some darn cute swimsuits out there, not to mention coverups, beach bags and whatnot. And this year is no different. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite new summer style must haves in case you were too were pumped about the start of swim season!

I've always loved a good one piece swimsuit. They can be so flattering and this year I'm all about the zipper. I found this slimming zip up one piece swimsuit at Swimspot and love that I can zip it all the way up for pool time with the kids and down a bit when I'm lounging at a resort with the hubs. Haha! And to go over my one piece, I'm all about a comfy coverup. There is something so classically chic about a flowy open coverup. And this whole ensemble goes perfectly with my new large and in charge straw bag. It's a great size for not only hauling my summer necessities around, but my family's too. What a perfect finishing touch for any swimwear look!
So, if you're looking for some summer style must haves to amp up your swimwear vibe, I suggest a zip one piece, a flowy open coverup and an all purpose straw bag! Now go forth and enjoy that water!
