i've often joked that my personal motto is "keep it clean." sometimes i feel like the unofficial chief of the modesty police. maybe that's why i love this season's trend toward one-piece and retro two-piece bathing suits. i think it's better to leave a little up to the imagination... which must be why i'm including some adorable cover-ups and beachy accessories too!
part one :: retro bikinis and cover-ups
left to right, top to bottom, low to high: j.crew top & bottom $114 / cuchè @ oliver & lilly's $175 / ave @ anthropologie $176 / juicy couture $179 / rachel pally @ anthropologie $196 / michael kors $265 / diane von furstenberg $295 / prada $395 / oscar de la renta $413

these almost make you want to wear a swimsuit. hmm, what's that? oh just the beach calling my name. thank goodness it's just down the block!
[stay tuned for part two :: one-pieces and accessories]
