After posting about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (here, here and here), I’m up to my ears with cute fall/winter items. But, it’s still summer here, so let’s talk summer items! I had a really great learning experience this summer, and I wanted to share!
Before we headed to the beach in June, I went out to buy a new two piece, and the swimsuit department was very picked over. I ended up trying on a whole bunch of random tops, because they had sold out of the matching bottoms. Well, what do you know, it worked out really well for me! I ended up with three new swimsuits for the half price, because I just used the black bottoms I already had! No need to buy three new bikinis with matching bottoms! Just buy tops that match bottoms you already have!!!
I really lucked out, because I found swimsuit tops that worked well for my larger chest. It’s usually a real struggle for me to find well fitting bikini tops that look appropriate! If you are in the same boat, check these out:
What I learned is that I don’t have to buy the matching set! Instead, I can just find a few tops that match a pair of bottoms I already have and know I love! Now I’ll need a new pair of black bikini bottoms after this summer. Any suggestions?
