2022 Swimsuit Guide

This time of year, I get tons of requests for bathing suit recommendations, so I've updated my Swimsuit Guide for Women Over 40! It's a big task because every woman's body is different and we all have different features we want to camouflage or flaunt, but I did my best to cover all the bases.

Beach Vacation Essentials

With summertime comes the slew of emails with vacation packing requests... because we all look forward to summer vacation but not so much packing for summer vacation. So I'm teaming up with Nordstrom to talk about beach vacation essentials and how to go directly from the beach to dinner.

Beach Bum #FashionFriday

Swimsuit season is fast approaching, and this year I added two new swimsuits to my summer wardrobe. I wore them both when I was in Florida, but my favorite by far is the one I'm wearing in this post.

Swimsuit Coverups Under $50

When swimsuit seasons arrives, I am all about the coverup. For obvious reasons, a coverup is a nice way to, well, cover up if you don’t feel like prancing across the pool deck in your swimsuit every time you need to check on a wayward child. But a coverup is also a fun accessory to...

Stylish One-Piece Swimsuits

Word on the street is that one-piece swimsuits are on trend this year. It’s been YEARS since I’ve owned a one-piece. I love the convenience of the tankini, and for a while the one-piece suits have seemed rather dated. I’m not sure how I feel about their resurgence. Of course, I know that I don’t...

Fashion Friday :: My New Swimsuit Cover-Up

Last week I decided that it was high time I update my swimsuit cover-up. I always admire cute swimsuit coverups on other women, but I admit that mine are horribly dowdy. I don’t know why, but this is the one area of fashion where I haven’t kept up with the times. I still wear those...

Fashion Friday :: SWIMSUITS!

Oh yeah, I’m going there. I’m curious. What types of bathing suits do you wear? I got into an interesting discussion with some girls at the gym about skirted bathing suits. They basically mocked me for wearing what they scoffingly called, “but skirts” (intentional misspelling, gotta fool the Google!) and said that they just call...

Fashion Friday: Swimsuits and Coverups

By popular demand, let’s discuss swimsuits and cover ups.  As for the former, you can refer to a post I wrote in July of 2007: To Skirt or Not To Skirt, That Is The Question. We might as well just get it out here in the open right from the get-go.  I am a huge...
