victoria's secret - swimwear

Last Christmas, I got a Victoria's Secret gift card from my parents and I have been hording it until this past week. It is one of my favorite gifts, as I LOVE everything from VS...but, as I was joking with my friend Abby (who is also an avid VS shopper)...I feel like I have to wait for all the stars to align in order to use it ;)

The other day it was not only the Semi-Annual Sale, but there was a free shipping code and an extra 20% off code...I knew it would never get better than that so I had to jump on it and finally use the gift card!

I did get a bra, but the majority of the card was used on bikinis <3
I recently got rid of most of my bathsuit collection as I have lost weight this past year and most of my suits were a couple years old and looking kind of ratty. The only one I kept was my VS Daisy bikini in black.


I bought a grand total of 3 bikinis...2 matching sets and the third I made myself with mix-and-match pieces!

The first matching set is the Gorgeous bikini in Amalfi Blue, which I have had my eye on for a year...blue is definitely not the first color I go to when choosing clothing items, but I just loved the way this looked with the bright green accent!


The second matching set is just a simple triangle top with side-tie bottom...both in Neon Hot Pink which I loveee (only the top is pictured in Neon Hot Pink).


Finally, I made my own set with a couple different pieces. When we went to OBX with our friends last summer, Abby had the most adorable bikini bottoms and I had to have them! They are side-tie in a neon coral-pink-orange color with ruffles and ruching in the back (believe the style is called "Cheeky").

I paired them with a white bandeau top and I plan on getting a little pink starfish brooch to pin in the middle to bring the whole suit together ;)




Haven't even gotten to the pool yet this summer because we are so busy every weekend!! I think we are going to try and go this Saturday though, so maybe I'll get to wear one of these new suits :))

Hope you all have a lovely Friday!
