Each year starting around this time, I get a lot of questions on swimwear so I've jump-started my "research" for you guys this season. This is my first time trying LOFT swimwear and I was very happy with the quality and fit. It looks like most of their pieces are lined with removable bra cups, which a lot of brands actually do not include (which truly baffles me, because who wants pokey nips at the pool?!). The fit was great on me with good coverage, unlike ASOS swimwear which I also love and recommend, but their swim bottoms offer skimpier rear coverage. I would definitely suggest checking out both selections with each of their promos going on this weekend - in case you missed my last post, I rounded up my top Memorial Day sale picks there!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to those in the US! There are SO many good sales going on, and I've shared the best ones from my favorite brands down below. This palm-print dress is a find from Lord & Taylor which I don't usually shop at...however I have a fun dress from their Design Lab line years ago so wanted to check out what was new. I love that this one can be worn either on or off the shoulders, and you can adjust the length by using a waist belt and folding some material over.
LOFT - 40 to 60% off site-wide. They have fun shorts at modest lengths and also cute one-piece and tankini swim options. I have their striped pink shorts (60% off! runs big but shrinks a full size in the machine dryer) and leaf print one piece (runs small) which I'll be posting more photos of this weekend. Other cute pieces on sale: matching leaf print sarong wrap, a pair of retro tortoishell cat-eye sunnies, and another adorable one-piece (several negative reviews are just due to it running small / short).
I love it when older favorite pieces make a comeback! My skirt is from last year (see older posts) but was fully re-stocked in black, and my top sold out quickly last season (see older post) but is now available again in all sizes. Nordstrom asked me to do a post on summer handbags, which is how I discovered that my Coach bag is also back in a new version. I was bummed when they stopped making turnlock crossbody bags last year since I think it's one of their most classic signature styles. They also have this crossbody w/ adjustable strap in a similar canary yellow, which just went on sale as part of their half-yearly event!
Another useful bag for summer is my Sole Society Cassidy travel duffle for those weekend trips. I'm not sure if the current pricing at Nordstrom is temporary but it's 40% less than the usual $80!
I'm a sucker for cute whimsical prints...they're an instant pick-me-up when getting dressed in the mornings, and also make for good convo starters! I fell in love with this sweater on a mannequin and thought it'd be a rather versatile piece for layering. The elephants are woven into the knit (not just printed on), and the piece is conveniently machine-washable.
