In case you couldn’t tell from this post, I am such a huge fan of retro-inspired swimwear and accessories. The reemergence of high waist bottoms and one-pieces with ultra-feminine touches is right up my style alley, and this little poolside look is even more proof. After seeing Kate Spade’s collection of bow-topped swimwear, I had been into three different Nordstrom stores to try it out, but it was sold out everywhere (and I understand why — it’s so darn cute!) Thankfully, they carried my personal favorite style, this little pastel pink bow bandeau top, online, so I ordered it, and I’m so glad I did. I absolutely love the playful, girly feel that the oversized bow adds and the color is just so pretty (it also comes with detachable straps). While I was browsing, I also came across these high waisted bottoms in the loveliest sorbet shades, and it was the perfect complement to the bow bandeau top.
To continue the classic, vintage-inspired swim look, I opted for a large brimmed floppy hat and these round sunnies I scored for just $9 from Polette (yes, you read that right). I’ve done a few posts on instagram featuring their amazing eye glasses that are also incredibly affordable, but this was my first pair of sunglasses from the brand and I’m in love. As inexpensive as they are, they are amazing quality and have great UV protection too. I matched my towel to the pastel color scheme with this gorgeous mint colored turkish towel I found at Nordstrom.
