Tropical-Vacation

I have a confession: I’m a t-shirt and jeans girl.

I feel like there’s a certain percentage of the fashion blogosphere which prides itself on never wearing or even owning a pair of pants, but I’m here to tell you that I am all about pants, and pants are my friend. I basically wear some form of t-shirt and jeans everyday (and yes, you may apply that pun to “basic” if you want to!).

Esther Williams swimwear is a vintage bathing suit line inspired by none other than the iconic Esther Williams! Before Esther Williams was an actress she was an avid swimmer. She grew up here in Los Angeles and was constantly at the beach or in a pool. Esther actually got her start as an actress because a scout saw a picture of her in an advertisement for her local swim team. The Esther Williams swimwear models everything after her, and we are lucky enough to be able to carry the brand! We are obsessed with every bathing suit they have. We have of our personal favorites and the perfect accessories to go with them!

Bombshell in Red
If you love the color red, then this is the perfect look for you! How amazing is this cherry one piece swimsuit? This swimsuit, hat, and perfect pair of pumps are all you need to look like a vintage bombshell at the beach.

Polka Dot Doll
Is there a such a thing as too many polka dots? We didn’t think so either, dears. This one piece classic inspired swimsuit is perfect for a girls weekend. It is ideal for lounging around the pool, but it is perfect if you and your girls want to grab food from a cafe that’s on the beach. We will definitely be rocking this suit!

Esther Darling
Channel Esther herself in this vintage inspired black one piece swimsuit. We are currently obsessing over this entire look. Every piece of this look is fabulous. Every doll needs to have a beach tote to hold all of their essentials. To top this outfit off you have to add a pop of color. The Hello Sunshine loafers are the perfect pop of color to add.
