Current Favorites: Swimsuits + Coverups

March 7, 2019


Erin Schrader

Ready or not, swimsuit season is upon us! Sure, the blanket of snow on the ground and my thermometer may suggest otherwise. But that’s neither here nor there. For a few of you lucky souls heading on a tropical vacation, the days of basking in the sun are closer than others. Until then, I’ll be sipping a fruity cocktail at home on the couch, covered in 24 blankets, dreaming of sunshine. Glass – much more than – halfway full. In this roundup, you will find a handful of our current favorite [LIY Tribe-Approved] swimsuits and cover-ups to pack for your next vacay or wear right now if you’re not experiencing a polar vortex. March, go home, you’re drunk.

Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. You will also see a few of Skye’s favorite suits. She is a 12/14, normally wears a size L, bust is 36G. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright friends, let’s begin!

ps. You can see ALL previous roundup blog posts in one easy spot!
