The RLS Swim Guide 2015, Part I

OMG I am so hot! This is pretty much the refrain most people around me have been listening to for the last month. Sorry but I just can’t help it. I am so hot! Luckily we’ve signed the kids up for swim lessons all summer so I get a dip in the pool once a week. This is a great excuse for the ridiculous bathing suit wardrobe I have amassed over the last 5 years.

Why is it ridiculous? Because I usually put a bathing suit on about 3 times a summer. OK, I’m lying. I just did the math and my bathing suit collection is really 10-15 years old, precisely because I wear them so little. Just because you wear a bathing suit only a few times a year (and therefore they are all in perfect shape) doesn’t mean that you don’t want a new one every few years!

So for those of you in the market for a new suit (or maybe just a new pair of flip flops), here is Part 1 of the RLS Swim Guide 2015. In this edition, we’ll show you the preppy style filled with seersucker and patriotic colors, edgy swimsuits that are perfect for a city rooftop pool, and ultra feminine retro florals. Be sure to look out for these trends when searching through the stores. Happy Shopping!
