summer days driftin’ away, to uh-oh those summer nights.

here is a highly romanticized version of “summer in florida.” sometimes it IS this good. but most days it’s too humid, too hot and you would rather be inside soaking in air conditioning. i guess you just have to be in the mood for sweltering weather, and dressed right. i was a typical florida gal on this day… i threw on easy breezy overalls, snatched up some perfect vintage and then met matt and his friends at the beach with some muffins. 
okay, so here is a little open discussion i’ve been stuck on for a bit— two piece or one piece swimsuit? i invested in this little number up above because i think one piece bathing suits are ADORABLE and also classy. sometimes i feel like my body is too sacred to flaunt on a beach for total strangers. but i also feel a little bit granny in the one piece. what do you guys wear all summer? 
overalls: vintage

  • You need one of those super high waisted bikinis they are showing now! So vintage, you only show a small strip of skin by your rib cage and you don't have to feel too modest ๐Ÿ™‚ in fact… I think I may need one too!

  • You look sweet! I like your swimsuit a lot and oh those muffins!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I never thought I would say cute But you really do look so cute! I switch up between a one piece and a bikini during the summer.
    Your one piece is super cute, not granny at all.

  • Adorable!

  • I LOVE you in that one piece, you're totally inspiring me to go get one… they're definitely flattering. BTW the overalls are perfection.


  • I know what you mean about the swimming suits. I got an adorable one piece too, that I love. Others liked it too, but there were times it felt very old-lady when everyone ELSE is in a bikini. I like the idea of a vintage bikini too.

  • I love your outfits! Super jealous! I like two pieces more but then there are one pieces like the one you have that I just love haha!

  • I absolutely love your shortalls! They are definitely awesome beach coverups!


  • Love your swimsuit! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • another cute it!

  • love the overalls!

  • I love the carefree-ness of the overalls, perfect for hanging out at the beach. I feel like overalls are making a come back, I may have to try them out this summer ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for your question about swimsuits, I'm on the fence about one-piece vs. two piece, I agree that one-pieces are super cute and classic, but I have a little bit of a tummy and I feel that one pieces emphasize that a little more than a two-piece…could be just me though! haha ๐Ÿ™‚


  • perfect summer days, love your vintage bikini and oversize sunnies!

  • Lovely pics, very cute!

  • perfect summer photos! i love jumpsuite ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • So beautiful !
    Love your overalls so sweat – vintage :))

    see you, Anais xx

  • Ana

    This does look like a lovely summer day! (sadly one that's left for my dreams, because there is no beach anywhere near me) I love everything about these pictures, from your fun outfit (I need some overalls now!! :P) and pretty swimsuit to the beautiful beach and yummy cupcakes!

    As for the swimsuit debate, I say why choose?! I have one of each and will rotate between them all summer long!

    Hope you're having a great day!

  • I love this suit on you!! I like both one and two pieces… Just depends on how your feeling!


  • Lovely pictures! I'm jealous of your body :')


  • Oh, psh. Everyone has a body.

  • Kat

    Actually, I love your one-piece! I've been looking for a retro-esque one-piece (not that I have anywhere to wear it — no beaches here, and the pools are GROSS!). Still, I like wearing both types of swimsuits, but I'm leaning toward one-pieces since I've gained a bunch of weight.

  • I am in love with your overall shorts! I've been looking for a great pair myself. Your trip looks beautiful, I'm so jealous!

  • I really like your overalls! I know a great thrift store where I might be able to get some… Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I'm back blogging this summer if you wanted to check out my blog!

  • cute pictures!!
    and you look beautiful!!


  • I adore everything you wear, but those overalls are soo cute! I wish i had a pair. haha. Swimsuits…a girls worst night mare, especially when shopping for them. I personally wear two piece swimsuits all summer, but if i can find totally adorable one piece i would wear either. I did see someone else post this before, they do now make kinda retro two pieces now you should try. Why not? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I love the one piece bathing suit, and the overalls are adorable!

  • I love what you are wearing in the first picture <3!

  • You are the cutest! I miss the beach so much here in Colorado during the summer. So, I have always been a two piece girl, I only own one (nike) one piece for swimming laps at gyms, etc, which is atrocious. That said, I have been highly considering going for a one piece this year! I don't think you look granny at all, just cute and classy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also, just need to say thanks again for my lovely sailor romper, I am getting tons of compliments on the blog and in real life, and pointing them in the direction of your shop!

  • I tooootally agree with you on how you feel in bikinis! I feel the same way! And honestly I think it's a great attitude to have about bathing suits. I've always worn a tankini or one piece, but lately I've really been liking vintage-inspired bikinis. You know, with the high waisted bottoms and cute tops…they don't show too much skin, only a little more so than a one piece! And they're adorablez. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Super cute! I like one pieces and more modest two pieces.. I don't need people walking around looking like they are in their thongs! lol

    xo Jennifer

  • you look darling in that one piece. i can imagine…humidity is definitely not fun.
    but i wear two pieces only because i'm short and i feel that once pieces just shrink my torso about 10 xs haha

  • You are rocking the crap out of that one-piece, and you look nothing like a granny in it. I love the way it looks!

  • I think a one piece with cutouts would be the perfect solution and love the overalls

  • I love the overalls! Haven't worn any since I was a little girl, but those are classy overalls.
    As for the bathing suit, I wear mostly sport one-pieces. When it comes to swimming, function comes far before fashion for me. But that's just my personal style, I thought you looked great in your one-piece, not like a granny at all! I love your blog!

  • you look so cute!
    The shoes are amazing (:

  • Love this cute little outfit! And love your swimsuit!

  • LOVE the suit on you! I think all women should wear whatever bathing suit they're comfortable in, whether it's a one or two piece, or whatever! ๐Ÿ™‚ And that guy looks like my friend's brother lol.

  • lovely photos,looks like you had a good time,yummy cupcake! haha

  • you're adorbs in overalls. XO!

  • I love this look! That jumper is super cute! I adore those glasses too! xx


  • I wear a one piece that I found fit me, but I also have a two-piece tankini. My problem is that one pieces often won't cover the boobs well without pulling at the crotch. I managed to find my one-piece at Torrid, a fat girls store.

    I was just telling someone the other day that I really dislike this period in time. One of the reasons is how naked we are. I used to live in Jacksonville, and I found the nakedness astounding. So many tiny pieces of spandex not covering enough of the body. It's not even about if you have the right type of body, either.

    I think your body is sacred and you look gorgeous in that one-piece. You don't have to be nearly naked to be pretty.

  • Loving the overalls and those wedges!!

  • Loving your overalls! I used to be a "bikini only" gal but getting older and wiser has left me getting and loving one piece suits. This one on you is super cute and doesn't scream "granny" at all to me!
