Summer has started for us down here in Georgia and I know that some people are still trying to find bathing suits on a budget. Well ladies I have found the solution! The answer is clearance shopping! I went to different stores online looking for bathing suits that are fairly priced. I found a lot of different bathing suits in different stores that looked great and were fairly cheap. I had so much money left over that I was able to buy an outfit to put over the bathing suit and some accessories. Who says you have to spend a lot to look like a million bucks?

The floral blue, red, white, and black bathing suit top was found at Target AND it is Peter Pilotto for Target. I combined this bathing suit top with a bottom that I found at H&M because they both had the same blue.  The bathing suit alone costs $11.28 leaving with me with $38.72 to buy an outfit to put over the bathing suit. I found the shirt and pants at H&M. The white bulldog shirt looks amazing on top of the black and white polka-dotted pants. What I love about these pants is that it’s a short on the bottom with a sheer long pant on top to show the shorts underneath. I found some black flip-flops at Rue 21 and they were super cute for a shoe made of rubber. I also added a bag from H&M so that you can put any beach needs such as a towel and sunblock. And like any person should have on when going to a sunny place, I added sunglasses. The black sunglasses I found at H&M. Add a red lip and you are perfect! Yes, I said add a red lip to the beach. Why not? The whole outfit costs $47.22 so you have some change back to make sure you get a good sunblock to protect your skin. Cute and smart! 🙂

Inspiration Monday: Cherry Swimsuit

Inspiration Monday: Cherries Swimsuit
Today is yet another Inspiration Monday, but I’m going to give you guys a little something different. A few selected fashion bloggers and I were chosen by ModCloth.com to participate in their Uniquely You challenge. The challenge was that they would give us a piece of clothing, and we would have to create a story (outfit) using that one piece we were given. The winning look will be displayed on ModCloth’s Wanelo page with a link back to the outfit creator’s blog. Challenge accepted! I thought that it was really cool how she reached out to me to join the challenge and I couldn’t wait to get the piece. One of the catches was that I had to create an outfit that would look good on plus size women as well.
The one piece I was given to work around was a bathing suit with a cherries fabric. I created two stories for the challenge because I was stuck in between two outfits. I also decided that it was best to include both because all women have different personalities and style. I used dresses for the stories because I thought they were chic to go along with the bathing suit and they were easy to slip on over the suit. Also, from my previous experiences of going to the beach or the pool, my family would usually go out to eat because we were too tired to cook after a long day of swimming so it was easier to just get dressed nicely and go eat. I used all the red and the green from the cherries found in the bathing suit in the outfit because I like to match my bathing suit to my outfit.
