Monday Must-Haves! Bathing Suits

It never really got cold enough here to not wear a bathing suit, but now that the grass is turning from brown to green, spring + warmer weather is sure to be here in no time. I love bathing suits, but have had a hard time finding a good one in the last few years. I’ve been wearing the same Victoria’s Secret bathing suit for at least 6 years now.

I’m dreading having to find a maternity swim suit + am pretty sure I will just stick with a regular bikini. I say if you don’t want to see a pregnant woman in a bikini, you should stay away from the beach!

Here are some cute finds from Etsy:

Classic Navy High Wasited Retro Bikini via BeBops ~ I love the retro look + the cute little star button!

 

Tuxedo One Piece Bathing Suit via PutOnThatDress ~ This is definitely one classy step up from the tuxedo t-shirt.

 

Ruffle Bikini via LoveLucyBea ~ The ruffles give this a really cute, sexy feel.

 

Miss White Cream Bikini via EleonoraEsposito ~ I love the idea of a crochet bikini… but does it actually hold up when swimming?

 

Skulls Teeny Bikini via SoCalBabyClothing ~ Cute little skull bikini to bring your little girl to the beach with you

Monday Must-Haves! Art from Etsy

I could spend all day browsing Etsy. I’ve bought tons of art from varying artists + these are some of my favorites from recent purchases.

Unicorn Skull Mask Masquerade via Carlationsart – I just bought this one + trying to figure out where I want to hang it.

 

Beserker (original art) via Workweak – I got this for husby for Christmas. This will be in our living room once it is framed.

 

Little Red Blood Sucker via KatMartinArtist – I love all of Kat’s prints + own quite a few. This one I bought for my hairdresser + gave her for Christmas.

 

Zombie 15 via TheZombieHorde – This print is in our entry way to greet you as you come in our house.

 

The Sunlight of the Future via WormsWormsWorms – I have three of her prints in our living room + plan on buying some more!

My Closet

Dress ~ MamaSan Maternity / Shoes ~ Delia*s

In my search for attractive maternity clothes, I ran across MamaSan Maternity on Etsy + I love their simple Rockabilly/Punk dresses. The fabric is super comfy + will certainly accommodate my not-yet-showing baby bump! What I love most about this dress is that even though it is classified as “maternity,” I know I’ll continue to wear this well after my pregnancy.

With the basic A-Line cut + the D-ring detailing, you can’t go wrong with this little black dress.

Do you have a favorite place to buy maternity clothes?
