Bathing Beauties - Retro Swimwear Revival


Today, I have the pleasure of being a guest blogger on Leopard and Lavender while Kelli is away on vacation. Since Monday marks the unofficial start of summer here in the states, I decided to take a look at the bathing beauties of the past and the retro swimwear they have inspired this season. Below is a sneak peak, but you can see my entire post here


Printed bikini by Mara Hoffman, Leopard-print swimsuit by Dolce & Gabbana, Black Cage bikini by Topshop, Halterneck swimsuit by Norma Kamali

Don't forget to view my entire blog post here, and let me know if retro swimwear is a yay or nay for you this summer!

  2. Although I am typically a bikini girl, I love this look. I need more variety in my swimwear collection, and I may add one to my collection for the summer. Enjoy the holiday weekend! xo

    Have a good weekend!
