no more itsy bitsy teenie weenie... (part 1)

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

retro bikinis
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

left to right, top to bottom, low to high: roxy $50 / roberta roller rabbit @ piperlime $55 / topshop $70 / topshop $80 / anne pinkerton @ anthropologie $88 / marc by marc jacobs @ shopbop $124 / marimekko $135 / trina turk $179 / antik batik $445

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]

love the retro-style 2-piece wonders. the first orange cover-up and the white one below it are amazing too.

Love love love the michael kors! Didn't realize jcrew did one as well, much more in my price range, perfect for ace hotel in november!
