The weather is finally warming up and that can only mean one thing - swimsuit season is fast approaching. Luckily, I got a head start on my tan considering it was the height of summer when we left Kenya in February. One of the last trips we took was to Diani Beach on the Kenyan coast and I have to admit - I am devastated that we did not go earlier. But it's probably a good thing, as I would have refused to go anywhere else thereafter. Besides Diani Beach being the most prefect and beautiful place I have ever been (just look at that water!), I also had the perfect new swimsuit for the trip.
I'm a sucker for anything gingham, and the black and white bralette and ruched bottoms were calling my name when I checked out LimeRicki's newest collection. While one of Kenya's oddities is the lack of a postal system, my mother-in-law was coming to visit. I had the suit shipped to her house and after her flights DC > JFK > Amsterdam > Nairobi I had it in my hands!
Besides being such a cute pattern, I absolutely loved the fit. A lot of times you get these swimsuits and you're so afraid to move in them in case - you know - something pops out or a string comes untied. But with this suit I was able to play in the waves, swim in the warm Indian Ocean, and even went snorkeling for the first time! It was so comfortable and flattering that I just tied a scarf around my waist before lunch and dinner and hung out in the suit from dawn til dusk.
