Image above from Marysia, featuring their discounted Zuma bikini. I own several suits from this elegant label and they wear beautifully and run a tiny bit small! Read below for some Marysia marked down to like 80% off and some Marysia-inspired finds, too.
If you were wondering when might be the right time to buy swimwear: it’s now. There are so many high-end/designer suits marked down below $100. Most of the suits in the lineup below are in fact well under $100 and they are all chic chic chic.
THIS RUFFLED SEERSUCKER ($60!)
THIS DELICATE BLUE (LOVE THE TRIM)
THIS PRETTY-AS-A-POSY ONE-PIECE, WHICH REMINDS ME A BIT OF LOVESHACKFANCY
I do want to call out a few splurge suits worth drooling over:
THIS DARLING LEMLEM (THE TIES!)
And, for chic coverups and sandals…
THESE WHITE LINEN PANTS (EXTRA 40% OFF WITH CODE BEST40)
THIS POMMED PAREO ($50 AND IN GREAT COLORS)
THIS BLOCKPRINT BEAUTY (ON SALE FOR $60)
CAN’T SPEAK TO QUALITY, BUT THESE $16 SCALLOPED SHORTS ARE DARLING
…AND HAVE TO SAY THESE FOAM/LIGHT BIRKS ARE PRETTY GREAT WHENEVER WATER IS INVOLVED
Tote your beach essentials in an LL Bean canvas bag or a coated Pam Munson, keep your sunscreen and other must-haves organized in these pouches, and throw out a cabana striped beach towel (or, swoon, unfold one of these S&L sling chairs — look for less with these).
Finally, in case your “swim club” is actually your backyard: Minnidip pools are still occasionally restocked at Target! The children loved this when we were away and frankly it was a very helpful “holding pen” for my extremely adventurous thirteen month old. (Mr. Magpie and I joked about whether we should inflate it in our living room…) Micro loved playing with this set in the pool, and, though it took some coaxing, mini ended up loving the sprinkler. Bunch O Balloons were also a huge hit — not only with the children, ha!
P.P.S. Short hemlines = chic.
P.P.P.S. On turning 36…
