Okay…so it’s not exactly swimsuit season yet. But I am sure I am not the only one who has started dreaming about breezy summer days by the pool. 

I actually did a bit of opposite season shopping last fall and bought myself this J. Crew retro-inspired set last year. The top is the Sweet Papaya Underwire Top and the bottom is the Sweet Papaya Tie Short.

I then stumbled upon this picture of Monica Jagaciak wearing the same suit…how does one erase the image of a beautiful specimen wearing your swimsuit and not run away in shame? I kid I kid, but she does look flawless in it.

Boyfriend’s remark when I showed him the picture is…why is she wearing THAT playing baseball in an abandoned lot?!

Have you started swimsuit shopping? Or are you, like me, someone who buys a new swimsuit every four years.
