I've been waiting a long time for this particular swimsuit from Issa de' Mar. I even had the whole outfit planned out in my head. I originally wanted the printed version but realized how elegant and sleek black is. So I ended up with both. Conveniently.
I love one pieces for several reasons. For one, they don't come off while you're surfing. And second, it works as a swimsuit and a top. I am particularly fond of this suit because of it's fit and lovely criss-cross design on the front and back. I splurged on the One Teaspoon shorts because I felt like it was necessary for summer. Practically all my shorts are by One Teaspoon. It has become a staple in my closet. The sunglasses were an added bonus. I found them on a recent trip to town to run errands and as always, stop off at Nordstrom Rack to peek at all its designer discount goodness. My mister doesn't call me a "baller on a budget" for nothing!!
This outfit turned out a lot better than I anticipated. For me anyway. I always find it hard to be fashionable on an island. But this has become the perfect outfit. Island or not. I'm definitely gonna rock this look for summer.
