Fun in the Sun

On me: L*Space "rock the boat" bikini top & bottoms // J.Crew linen striped popover

I have a confession to make… I totally bought Chris a swimsuit to match my own *covers eyes with hands.* Does that make me a good girlfriend or just creepy? Haha! Anyways, I seriously love that both of our swimsuits are nautical-inspired. My L*Space bikini top has the coolest back (it's made completely of ropes!) and his Vineyard Vines swim trunks are just about the cutest trunks I've ever seen. Ladies, your men need these! (Side note - both of these suits are from St. Bernard Sports, one of my new favorite online retailers. They have a great collection of designers including Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer and Mara Hoffman, and there's free 3-day shipping on orders more than $49!)

We are five days into our beach vacation and I'm just now starting to relax… watching the ocean with my morning coffee, reading a good book on the beach and taking long walks are just a few of my favorite things to do at the beach. Today is Chris's last day on vacation with my family - I am sad but so thankful he could come. It is a blessing for him to get to know my family more!

SHOP THE POST:

In other exciting news, the Kate Spade surprise sale started yesterday! Receive up to 75% off normal retail prices by shopping it here (the sale ends tomorrow). My picks are below.

I've been looking for bathing suits for my boyfriend since he wears the same Columbia one over and over and I love that Vineyard Vines one you picked out for Chris! Hope you enjoy the last day of vacation time with your cute man!

  14. Ahhhh you're so cute!

    Love that bikini and you're totally not creepy for purchasing matching shorts for your guy. I'd do the same...but I'd have a difficult time getting the honey to put them on to match. Oy!

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation :)

  30. I love how you bought him that swimsuit to match yours - not creepy at all!! Before I even read that, I was like: "Aww they both look so good together in blue suits!!". But I love how it's not TOO matchy-matchy.

    Hope you have a great rest of your vacation!! :)

  32. I adore your swimsuit but there is no way I could pay over $100 for a bathing suit! Then again, I only wear a bathing suit a few times each summer.
