Memorial Day is quickly approaching and, whether you like it or not, so is swimsuit season! (Groan.) Fortunately for those of us who are looking for a little more coverage this year, retro-inspired bikinis are IN. You might not feel like a full one-piece is what you need yet but a high waisted swimsuit bottom covers up the pooch and love handles so all you have to do is act like you're really fashion forward...you can have your cake and strut in your swimsuit too!

With so many cute options available, you just have to do decide whether you want to save or splurge this swimsuit season. I was surprised to see that some of my favorite designers offered swimwear this year but J. Crew has been a long time favorite for my bathing suit collection. Remember that if you see an expensive top or bottom that you really love but don't want to break the bank, it's always fun and interesting to break up a bikini- invest in one half and save on the other.
I'm off to do some leg lifts and crunches. Happy shopping!
