Current Obsessions | Swimsuit Craze

via 
It's a pleasant feeling when you know it's time to invest in your summer suit. There are a handful of trends that have caught my eye this year, and I plan to execute a few of them in the summer sun. Take a glimpse at some of my current obsessions..

 This suit stole my heart at first glance. I couldn't think of a more lovely way to create swimwear. The delicate neckline is the perfect amount of detail.

I was quite impressed and pleasantly surprised when I found out this little number is handmade. I've never had a floral suit to call my own, but I see all that changing this go around.

 Nothing beats a good tribal pattern. Plus a good dose of fringe never did any harm.

 Girly swimsuits are a summer sweet tooth for me. I'm deeply considering purchasing the one on the right for a photo shoot this summer. Wouldn't it be lovely on a pretty gal out on a dock at sunset? It's a tempting endeavor at the very least.

 I need a crochet swimsuit this summer. This is possibly my favorite style of the upcoming season. It has such a simple, free feeling vibe to it. 

Lastly, a pretty cover up to indulge in. I see this making its way to an evening bonfire after a long day of absorbing a bundle of sunshine. 

Sigh, summer can't come soon enough.

  2. I love the look of the crochet swimsuits too. But I'm scared they wouldn't hold up too well. Something about dunking (essentially) a piece of string into water multiple times just makes me think it would end up really tattered and worn looking. But they are really beautiful...

  7. Could anyone tell me where the strapless bikini with the three straps on the bottom piece comes from? The one where the model is wearing sunglasses? I love it so much.

    1. Hi Kate,

      I provided a link below the photos. (it's the second photo of the tribal patterns so it's the '#2' link. However, I clicked on it to double check it went to the correct site, and they are sold out. :( Sorry! It's so beautiful, huh!?

  13. I love this post, and you are making me want some new bathing suits this summer!!! I love crochet bathing suites as well but I feel like if you are going to wear it at the beach you need to know your NOT going swimming... I dont see that panning out very well. I love the tribal pattern bathing suites as well!! :)

  22. All so cute! Especially the prints and crochet details. Wish they'd make some of those over here in the Philippines. I have my choices here: http://theclothesmuse.blogspot.com/2012/03/summers-here-fab-swimsuits-alert.html

    I think one of the brands, I Love Koi, already has a U.S. store. :)
