Trendy Tuesdays: What to wear to the pool?

12 May

If you’re like me, you dread going to the pool. But if you have kids, they are going to want to swim when it gets hot. In comes the tankini: the answer to a mom’s poolside clothing dilemma. It covers up what needs to not be seen, but is much more comfortable, stylish and convenient than a one-piece. And thankfully, there are many cute tankini options out there that won’t break the bank. Here are some of my favorites this season:


The Babette from Layers. Top $42, bottom $26.

The Bora Bora tankini from Shade. Tankini $36.50. And matching board skirt! $24.50.

Seaside Seersucker suit by J Crew. Top $50, bottoms $44.

The Sausalito tankini from Downeast Basics. Tankini $29.99 and cover up skirt (in many colors) $24.99.
and also from Downeast Basic, the Zuma suit:

Brooklyn Tankini by Lime Ricki. Top $35 and bottoms $30.

This is the cover up I am lusting after:

And pair it with these sandals, all you need is your pool bag and you’re ready to go!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
