Summer Swimsuit Picks

This summer will be a great one for my sweet little family. We have a wedding, in June, in Kansas City. My husband and I thought it would be fun to spend some time there and take our daughter on her first vacation! Total mama moment over here 🙂 We are planning to go to the zoo, check out a water park, and go to the aquarium. My daughter is at a fun age so it will be great to expose her to these places.  Also, my husband’s sister and her children will be there so they can all have fun together. If anyone out there has any Kansas City tourist tips let me know! I would love to hear them!

Next up, in July, my husband and I are going to Sandals Resort in Antigua. We went to a Sandals in St. Lucia for our honeymoon and had an excellent time. So, five years later we figure we deserve an anniversary trip;) If you have not been to an all inclusive style resort put it on your bucket list. It was so nice to not have to worry about having cash or cards all the time.  I’m hoping I can do a blog on our trip so if anyone is interested or wants to know more they can get a first hand account! Stay tuned:)

And so, that brings me to the point of this blog: swimsuits. A lot of my vacations will involve water parks, pools, and the ocean. So this Mama searched and searched and found some really great swimsuits (in my opinion). I know swimsuit shopping isn’t always high on the priority list. It’s tough to find the right style, fabric, price, and coverage. I’m with you, but maybe these options will work for you too. If not these specific suits maybe the websites will have something to offer. Sometimes I just need to be pointed in the right direction and I can take it from there. So here goes ladies….

Pink Thoughts & Espresso Shots xoxoxo

Disclaimer- I am not receiving any financial compensation or endorsement from these companies. These are my own choices and opinions.

 1. Target 

I really was skeptical about the high waist bikini trend. I gave it a try and I really loved it. It was comfortable and forgiving in all the right areas. I also think it would be great if you are active in the water or have a 2 year old who might be 😉 Target has a great selection of swimsuits-so if this isn’t your style check out –

Below are the links for this little black number –


2. Aerie 

Aerie is a branch out of America Eagle and it has some really cute stuff!! I was lucky to find this pink bandeau top and wide banded bottom during a sale event. Unfortunately, this suit is not available anymore but they do have a similar one in navy. Currently they are offering 25-50% off of swimwear- link below:)

3. Express

This is my favorite of the bunch:) I love the color and the added details on the bikini top. It fits really well too, which is something you want in a swimsuit. I had no idea that Express has such an awesome collection of swimwear and accessories. I posted the links to this suit below but if you get a chance check out the Express website-

I thought long and hard about posting photos of myself in these swimsuits. I just felt that the layout  pictures of these are great but they don’t give an idea to the fit. And partially I need to get over my self esteem issues, if not for myself then to be a good example to my sweet Ella. Enjoy these pictures of myself and my daughter- she was not impressed- #momlife #thisisreallife.
