Ah, Summer... You’re going to be here so soon! Or if you live in Texas like us, Summer is pretty much here already. Wasn’t it just winter?!

How do you usually spend your summer weekends? Lake? Pool? Ocean? We pretty much try to head to our families lake house each and every weekend we can. It’s so fun to spend the days outside with family, whether we’re just lounging about or out on the boat, and introducing the boys to a long standing family tradition of summers at the lake has been so fun the last few summers. But, of course, summer and lakes, pools, and oceans means it’s also swim suit time. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite summer 2016 suits below!



  1. Have you heard of Albion Fit yet? They’re the brand behind some of the cutest fitness and lounge wear around, and of course their swimsuits are no exception. We love this high-waisted-tankini-but-looks-like-a-one-piece number. They have some of the cutest patterns and shapes/styles that we’ve seen. Don’t miss their adorable kids wear while you’re on their website!

  2. The floral drama behind this bikini from Anthropologie makes this black number a little more exciting than your typical black swimsuit, but it still has that classic feel. The top and bottom both provide more coverage than your typical bikini, but you still get the bikini look and feel. Mom win!

  3. This one piece swimsuit is the most glamorous, yet practical, suit of the season. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s such a unique suit and one that makes you feel like a total babe. I mean, the back is totally backless! It would also be super cute and appropriate to walk around in when worn with shorts. Instant outfit! Also, it comes in black too!

  4. Sometimes you just need a little fun, girly pop of color, no? This number from J.Crew is ultra flattering with the nipped in waist while providing full on coverage. And how fun is the color?!

  5. Okay, we saved the best for last. This classic, old school, always flattering suit is from Aerie. While we already love this suit for the style, our love is amplified because of Aerie’s promise of zero retouching on their models, which they have stuck to for the last couple of years. They have numerous mix and match styles, which are all cute!

Do you dread the new summer swimsuit each season or have you found a go-to brand and style that always works for you? If you do, let us know! And while a cute swimsuit that makes us feel great is awesome, may we all remember that fun and time with our family and littles is what’s truly most important this summer! And check back next Monday, we’ll be rounding up our favorite suits for the littles!
