Find the Perfect Swimsuit For Memorial Day Fun!

22 May

With Memorial Day coming, is your water wardrobe ready?

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and that means lot’s of summer activities, especially going to the beach or hanging out by the pool.

So how is your swimsuit situation?

Luckily, I’m always here to help!  I’ve put together a small sampling of perfectly fashionable swimsuits for the whole family!

First up, the ladies: Athleta & Macy’s

Athleta is home to a variety of designs, particularly for anyone who spends as much time in the water as they do exercising on the beach.  I wanted to include them since I know many of you like an athletic look to a swimsuit and one that is designed to stay on in the surf.

However, if you’re looking for a more traditional design, Macy’s has a positively huge selection to choose from!

For the guys, Macy’s is also my suggestion for the perfect pair of trunks!

And for the wee-ones, Naartjie Kids has some adorable swimwear for the summer! You might want to get two they’re so cute!

There you have it! A style for everyone in the family.

Let me know if you need ANY help finding the perfect style for your body type and I would be happy to help in any way I can.

Remember your sunblock!


GURU Holiday Fav’s Sweepstakes Day Ten: Athleta!

19 Dec

Only three days left in the GURU Fav’s Sweepstakes and today, we’re getting into shape (and looking good) with Athleta!

When I work out, I want my clothing to be comfortable, look good and most importantly, do some of the work too. Which is why today’s GURU Fav is the Long Sleeve Twist Top from Athleta (Center Court Lower Level)!

Made with runners in mind, it fits tightly around your torso, so if you want a looser fit, get the next size up. As you can see below, there are multiple colors to choose from, no matter your style.

Mine fits perfectly and even though I wear it constantly, it still wears perfectly even after dozens of washes. I love it for this time of year with the cold weather.

The seamless design won’t chaff and it’s great as a base layer in this chilly weather- I love the thumb holes for this very reason!  Plus, it’s super soft and comfortable and because the special Meryl Skinlife fabric whisks away the moisture, so you stay dry and odor-free.

I can’t say this shirt will make you want to work out more, but just knowing that I have a good looking, comfortable top like this helps me get out the door.

The ultimate work out top? Maybe. But I can say it would make someone very happy if they unwrapped it this season!

If you’re headed to The Streets at Southpoint today, I suggest you stop Athleta to check it out for yourself and then take a few short steps toward the table set up nearby in Center Court near the Welcome Center .  You can enter to win a $50 Athleta gift card to purchase anything in their store! All you need to do is sign up for The Club and you’ll be entered to win!

Are you an Athleta fan? maybe you’re a proud owner of the Twist Top? I would love to hear what you think about my GURU Fav’s from Athleta by commenting below!

And when you do, you’re automatically entered in the GURU FAVORITE THINGS SWEEPSTAKES to win a $150 retailer gift card to Athleta or any one of the GURU Fav stores that I showcase on the blog!  You get to choose which one. One lucky reader will randomly win! Just comment at the end of each of my posts, now through this Friday, 12/21/12. Official Sweepstakes Rules can be found here: OFFICIAL RULES.
