What I Wore Wednesday and a Swimsuit Hunt

Eek!!  I just said "Swimsuit"!!!  Keep's not that painful.  :)

It's Wednesday again!!  I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for WIWWGet Your Pretty On, and Because Shanna Said So.  
When my kiddos are older, they'll probably take pictures of themselves before they leave every morning.  They'll probably think it's just what everyone does!!  haha!!

Stripe Shirt:  Loft options here or here. (the second option is 40% off)
Vigoss Jeans:  I seriously have a couple pairs of these jeans and they're pretty much all I wear.  I'll throw on my camo pants or leggings every now and then.  But...most days I'm wearing these.

Stripe Shirt:  Old Navy option here or here.
Tank:  Gap tank here.
Vigoss Jeans:  Nordstrom here.

Blue Shirt:  Short-sleeve option here.
Pink Tank:  You guys know I love my maternity tanks from Target.  But...they only have so many colors.  I got this neon pink one from Gap.  They have some (probably only online) that come in "tall".  Gap tank here.
Floral Scarf:  Cute Gap option here.  
Vigoss Jeans:  Nordstrom here.

Coral Shirt:  Gap option here.
Floral Scarf:  Nordstrom scarf #1scarf #2, or scarf #3.
Vigoss Jeans:  See what I mean??  Nordstrom here.

Ok...just a little swimsuit talk.  This year I decided I needed to invest in some good swimsuits.  Most of my swimsuits are super stretched out from wearing them preggo, so I really need a couple new suits.  We swim A LOT during the summer!!!  

Normally, I try on suits alone, come home, and am not sure about it.  This year I decided I should change that.  I invited my friend, Narci, who was on a "swimsuit hunt" herself, to join me.  We met at the mall, had lunch, and HIT the swimsuit departments!!  

Let me just tell you it was so much fun!!  We laughed about things that did not look good and we CELEBRATED when we found a winner!!  I did not take pictures of us in our suits...but I'm sharing the treasures we found on our hunt yesterday.  After four stores, these were our winners...

We loved this Cremieux suit from Dillard's.  We actually mix and matched the prints.

We loved this pattern too!!  

Super cute white lace option.

Another option here.

That Cremieux Swimwear line at Dillard's was super cute and there are all different kinds of styles and fits.  When we mixed the patterns, we loved them even more.  So...we both ended up with a patterned suit from this line.  You should check it out!

If you're a tankini wearer, you need to order this one TODAY!!  The color in real-life is a pretty bright coral (not orangey like in the pic).  It's a GREAT color!  The fringe is SO cute!!

Fringe skirt bottoms here.

Our "1st Annual Swimsuit Hunt" was a success!!!  (I'm calling it an annual Narci has to join me again, right??)  We both left with two treasures AND with the promise of using self-tanner ASAP!!  hee hee!

Here's to hoping your swimsuit shopping is a success too!!

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

SUCH CUTE SUITS! I really love the first one! And let's talk about the Vigoss jeans. How many times do you wear them before you was them. Because I hear you can wear them like 5x between washes. Not that I would know that personally. :)

Katie Paladino said...

Ok this post is just full of fabulous fashion!! All your looks are so stylish and you hair looks too cute in look 3!! Plus I am loving all your swimsuits! Adorable!

Narci said...

Yes, that was so fun!!!! Swimsuit shopping is on of my least favorite things to do, normally, but we had the best time and found some great suits!! Love you!!

Kelley said...

Love the fringe suit! I need it! Online they are out of smalls. How did it run?

V @ X-tremely V said...

First of all, I love your hair in that first photo! I too live in my Vigoss jeans when I am not working! Some days I feel like a walking billboard for Sheaffer and Shay! lol!
I so don't want to think about swimsuit season yet! Maybe I will start with self tanner and then start looking :) Thanks for the great ideas Erika!

Tab & Erika said...

I actually ordered a large bc of the length and my least flattering area is my stomach so I didn't want it to be too clingy. a small tho. They didn't have a large in the store so I ordered it. The medium fit me but I think I'll feel better in the large. Narci said she usually wears an xs. Hope that helps!

Amy Flemister said...

Such cute fashion in this post!! I LOVED it! As far as swimsuit season goes, I am no where near ready! haha Hope you have a great day!

Cathy and Marshall said...

I love your blue scarf and the floral one below! So pretty and perfect for spring. And those are some really cute tankinis! I typically buy suits from Target because we're in the lake all summer, but I'm thinking I might just have to spring for one of those (post-kids-tummy-flattering) suits you featured! Thanks for sharing!!

Lauren ONeill said...

Oh my goodness, I love your last outfit! The bright pink sweater and lovely patterned scarf look so great together!

Those are some great swim suits! I just bought one for a cruise I took in that was plain black but I may look for one in a cute color or pattern too!

I LOVED that scarf yesterday you were wearing. And fyi, blue (the pic above that scarf) is definitely a good color on you.

Ashley @TheCreamToMyCoffee said...

I love your style - lots of stripes and pretty scarves are right up my alley!

Such pretty swimsuits - I hate swimsuit shopping but I'm thankful you can get such great options online!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

Brave girl - I can't think about swimwear quite yet. ;) Your scarf outfits are simply adorable, just like you!
