If you live in NYC, you probably don’t have too many swimsuits, due to the simple fact that you probably don’t go swimming to often. (I mean REAL New Yorkers avoid NYC beaches like the plague. LOL) And if you’re anything like moi, then you probably only go to the beaches in NYC, if someone is literally dragging you (or driving there) and you need the tan, or if …
I honestly can’t even think of another damn reason to go to the beach! LOL
As much as my daughter (pictured in the photo above) loves water, NYC isn’t about that beach life, so we honestly only go if someone is driving us out there and it’s gonna be a “beach day” thing. I mean, why the hell would I waste my time packing a bag, and buying food, and hopping on the damn bus to go to a dirty ass beach?
Simple. I won’t ..
HOWEVER! There are a few occasions where I end up needing a swimsuit, like when I go on vacation to St. Vincent, which, unlike NYC, actually has clean water beaches. LOL (Forget white sand beaches beeches, I’m looking for clean water beaches! LOL) And then I go scrambling at last minute to find a cute swimsuit that I’ll actually like that aren’t a thousand dollars for half of a swimsuit. LOL
So instead of scrambling this year, I found 6 cute swimsuits that I would wear if I was going to go to the beach this year. Hopefully this will help YOU find a new swimsuit as well. (Especially if you’re going on vacation later on this year! NOW is the time to stock up on swimsuits, trust me! I learned this one the hard way. But in my defense, my “vacation” was unexpected, very last minute and due to a death in the family, so there was literally NO time to even think about what I was putting in my suitcase, let alone find a swimsuit.
Anywho, here’s the 6 swimsuits I would wear this summer, if I actually needed one:
Dive In By Courtney Noelle in Pink – $70-$80
Isn’t this cute! Like OMG! Now all I need is a tail, and I’ll pretend to be a pwetty pink mermaid! (Okay maybe not. LOL) But if Courtney sold this in kid sizes, my daughter would SO make a cute mermaid. She’s pretty obsessed with them right now actually. LOL

Secret Agent Siren By Ashley Graham X SwimSuitsForAll in Red – $109
Now this one isn’t “cute”, it’s straight up sex-aye! LOL I think having a swimsuit that makes me feel sexy, would totally kill all the doubt in my head about wearing a swimsuit. Like, heyyyyy, look at meeee, I look gooddddd right! LOL

Tiered Colorblock Swimsuit By Avenue in Aqua – $100
I usually hate ruffles, but I think this would do a great job of hiding my stomach, or at least that’s what I’m hoping! LOL Plus my favorite color is blue!

Ruched Leopard Tankini Top By Ashley Stewart – $55
I love that this swimsuit is a top and a bottom, although I do hate that it has to be bought seperately, but I really like the idea of chilling on the beach in a tank top, literally! LOL Plus I love the pattern.

Beach Swimdress by Melissa Odabash Found on Target.com in Black – $55
So I don’t know if Swimdresses are a new thing, but I had no freaking clue this was even a thing! OMG! I’m in love! This is such a great way to wear a swimsuit confidently! It’s like walking around on the beach all day in a dress, but you can still go in the water! Win!

JIBRI’s Green Lace Embellished Maxi Kaftan – $250
I freaking love this thing! I mean, this isn’t in my budget, and it probably won’t be any time soon, but I freaking LOVE this! I could walk around the beach all day in this and not even go in the water. LOL Then, I can go straight to dinner after! How cute is this?
