~you didn't win?~do you want another try?~

Last summer I bought the cutest Juicy Couture suit at TJ Maxx.
You can read about it here. Here are a few swimsuit ideas that are perfect for the beach or poolside…

Bold & Bright – Stand out at the beach and grab a suit that flaunts that tan in yellow, turquoise or even black and white. .
Patterns & Prints – Looking to add curves to a petite frame? Opt for a suit with a bold print in a fun pattern like paisley, tie dye or a mosaic. Tribal prints have also made a huge comeback for this summer and can spice up any swimwear attire.
Embellishments –This year’s swimwear is all about the bling! Make sure to flaunt one of these new trends: jewels at the neckline, ombre fabric dyeing, ruched sides, buckles and grommet details.
The New One-Piece – The one-piece is back with updates that you won’t be able to resist! Look for suits with one shoulder straps and hardware to add an edge to your poolside attire. Monokinis are also a huge favorite this year. This sexy one piece allows fashionistas to show a little skin without exposing it all.
A swim look is never complete without the right cover-up, sunglasses, hat, carry-all bag, towel and sun-protection!

For the Boardwalk cover up with a colorful, strapless sundress, a solid romper or cargo shorts and a tissue tee. Try a long, patterned tunic for a chic on-and off the beach look. Keep feet sand-free with a pair of flat, gladiator sandals with stone embellishments.
Carry beach gear in an oversized straw bag with ribbon detailing or a cross-body messenger bag.
Stay sun protected with a pair of aviators or Jackie O style sunglasses, a wide brimmed straw hat in a variety of colors and details or try a lightweight fedora or boater style hat.

I bet you are wondering what this is all about?
Well, the nice folks over at TJ Maxx/Marshalls got wind

I'm pregnant this summer and one of the first things I bought after finding out was a new suit! I found cute ones at Old Navy, but I'm slightly sad I cannot wear a cute bikini (without being super over-exposed!)
