Every fourth of July always makes me realize how little red I have in my closet. Almost every year I end up just wearing white and blue, my favorite color, which I have plenty of in my closet. This is my first time attempting a swimwear look for Like Lillian and I am very happy with the way it turned out. I have to thank my friend Shoshana for not only taking these amazing pictures but also for allowing me to use her pool as my set for this shoot. I chose this suit to feature not only because it is somewhat patriotic but also because it is my first one-piece suit since my dreaded days of high school swim team. One-piece bathing suits are a huge trend this summer and I have been searching for the perfect one-piece that is not only eye catching but also inexpensive. I of course love the Zimmerman and Mara Hoffman one-piece suits however I can’t bring myself to spend $200 on something that is going to give me bad tan lines. I found the suit I am wearing in this post on the Aerie site, where many of my bathing suits and beachwear items are from, on sale for only $15. I really like the Aerie brand for summer clothing, bathing suits, bralettes, and underwear which you can always get for a great deal. I also appreciate their ‘untouched’ campaign featuring young women who are not retouched which I think is empowering and refreshing to see. I paired the suit with a loose pinstripe linen button-down from Denim and Supply Ralph Lauren and ripped jean shorts from American Eagle, which I wear almost everyday when it gets really hot in the summer. I also added these festive Sperry sneakers that I recently purchased from DSW, which are super comfortable. Also, the sunglasses featured in this post are my new favorites from Ilymix and if you would like to purchase a pair use my coupon code, LikeLillian20, to get 20% of your purchase.
