On a completely separate note from packing for Europe in a few weeks, although February/March seem entirely too early to shop for bathing suits, I took a look at Aerie swimsuits recently. While I haven't shopped at American Eagle since high school (2010 - eek!), a friend recently bought a few of their suits that were, to my surprise, 1) super cute, and 2) on mega sale.
I live for everything Marysia, but I rarely go to the pool or ocean, so I can't bring myself to drop $200+ on a bathing suit. Besides Aerie's body positive messages, I love their collection of one pieces! Sure, some of them have writing and come in neon colors, clearly targeting people who are a solid ten years younger than me, but the rest, like this slightly scandalous navy piece and rusty red halter are way more my taste.
With a week-long trip to Edisto this summer (I haven't visited for longer than two days in a row in three years!), I'm so excited to put on a suit, plop into a beach chair, and enjoy some vitamin D. And a one piece means I don't have to feel self conscious while drinking a beer and snacking in the sand. :)
