Is it summer yet?

Is it summer yet?

Ashley Tisdale was one of the pioneers in the fringed *L Space bikini top last summer

Ok, this So. Cal gal has had enough of being cold. I have pretty dresses and cute tanks in my closet that are getting tired of just hanging around. And I’m tired of the rain.

Last weekend it was 80 degrees! I had friends that were lounging on the sunny beaches in January (one of the many reasons I will never ever leave Cali.) But that wonderful weather got me thinking, about what to start shopping for for this summers uniform for lounging by the pool.

I must admit, last year the bar was set when Ashley Tisdale was spotted wearing an *L Space fringed neon yellow bikini on the beaches in Malibu to celebrate her birthday. Did I immediately want one? Heck yes!

I’ve actually LOVED these bikini’s ever since I saw them on the runway 2 summers ago at OC Weekly’s annual summer soiree event. But leave it to one of my favorite trend setters to convince me this *L Space piece is not only to die for, but a must have. Also a friendly reminder that summer is not too far away and I should have started hitting the gym hard like yesterday!

Style tips to keep in mind when shopping for a swim suit.

1. Keep it classy, not trashy.
2. Have fun with it! I personally love to mix and match pieces. And let’s face it swim suits can get to be pretty expensive. For example, the piece that is haunting my summer dreams is the fringed bikini top which starts at a price point of about $73 (available at Urbanoutfitters.com.) However, keep in mind H&M usually starts their swim suits off at a price point of about $5! Why not invest in an uber cute top and then get multiple bottoms from a more economical friendly retailer? The pros of this? Not only will you have a one of a kind piece, but you’ll also be able to invest in multiple pieces to change up the look!

Last summer I bedazzled a pink bikini from Victoria Secret to make sure my piece was unique and one of a kind. Ugh, is it summer yet?

Rain rain go away. Or on second thought, hang around until I can afford to invest in one of these cute pieces.
