Every year I buy myself a “to me, from me, love me” birthday gift. This year, I had my eye on this Mara Hoffman one-piece bathing suit and was planning on making it my present to myself. In a twist of fate, Swim Swim (an amazing online swimwear retailer) reached out to me as I was about to click “buy” and asked if I wanted to collab. Did I ever!

There are so many things that I could say about this bathing suit . . . First of all it’s a one-piece which is fabulous in itself. The pattern, the low back (not pictured), the flattering cut. I could go on and on. But one of my favorite features is how I can turn it into a shirt for a fun summertime weekend look. I wore it to my family 4th of July party and it transitioned perfectly from swimming in the lake to a BBQ on the lawn.

I just added a pair of shorts, a classic button down, and it looked pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.

Now the only question remains: How should I treat myself for my birthday this week?

    Gorgeous print on this swimsuit! I’d kill for a Mara Hoffman swimsuit but unfortunately I need an underwire or some support which they don’t really have haha! So I’ve been sticking with JCrew one pieces because they have some with great support! Also, lovinggg your hair! Happy early birthday 🙂

    That suit is perfection…bright colors, fun pattern. Pairing it with shorts and an oxford was a smart idea, and looks adorable!
