I don’t mean to brag or anything, but in just a couple of weeks time, I’ll be galavanting the beaches of Mykonos! It’s been more than two years since I’ve had a proper beachside vacation {Australia didn’t count- it poured rain and we never make it into any body of water!} so to say I’m excited would be an understatement! I’m so ready to put on some sandals, rock a sexy swimsuit and maybe even throw on a dress or two {can’t believe I just said that!}

So of course, I’m shopping for things I might need {or think I do} every chance I get. I’ve been coveting island-chic accessories, heaps of sunglasses, bright scarves…whatever screams Greece!


I clearly have been out of the swimsuit market for a while because it seems like prices for these pieces have skyrocketed! I’ve always been the type to bring a couple of swimsuits with me {a girl needs options, right?!}, but I’ve told myself I can bring only one splurge bathing suit and that’s it. Shutting the wallet tight is the easy part- choosing which one to take with me, not so much!


get your shop on: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 

The first dilemma I hit is should I go for a one-piece or bikini? I’ve long been a bikini girl, but these one-pieces are getting so sexy- just look at those plunging neck lines! I also can’t decide if I should go with something more sporty-classic or something a little more fun – perhaps printed palms?

Right now I’m leaning towards the two-tone bikini. I think it’s a modern, classic style that will last for years to come – but which one is your favorite? I need your help to decide!

  1. Oh my gosh… #2 has my name on it. So sexy and an updated 70’s Bo Derek look? Yes please. : )

    1. You’re so right about the Bo Derek look. Now I’m even more swayed to hop on team: one piece!

  2. I adore the palm print bikini. I also love the two tone bikini and nude one piece but depending on your skin tone you may end up looking a bit naked.

    1. Also you should checkmout Mikoh swimwear if they are not already on your radar

  3. Hey! I love the two tone! There is a great two tone bikini by Nettle’s Tale swimwear in Vancouver BC. Check out their website. They do custom swimwear for real women and the ladies who model them also helped design the swimwear with the company. Also, it is sustainable materials and locally manufactured in Van. Anywhoo, as you are on the swimwear hunt I recommend you check them out. I have the Britney (two-toned bikini) and loooooove it!!!
