When I bought my rash guard from Old Navy, I didn’t even think about what I was going to wear under it. I forgot they have NO support on their own. Being a one piece die hard, I didn’t even own a bikini top to pair with it so I went shopping. I picked up the Balconette Bikini top from Old Navy to wear under it and I have been so happy with it. I’ve never worn a swimsuit with so much support up top. The rash guard has also worked out great. It is so comfortable and I feel totally covered whenever I bend down and lean over to help the kids. The sleeves keep me cool by keeping my arms wet and they also offer sun protection. I’m a big fan of the whole combination.
My other favorites pieces at the pool this year are my RE aviators, Sam and Libby sandals from Target, and this bag from Consuela. I can’t say enough good things about this bag. It is on the pricey side for a pool bag, but I took it as my purse on vacation this weekend and it was a dream come true. The bag is enormous and it held anything and everything I tried to shove in it. The entire body of the bag is covered in vinyl – inside and out and the handles are real leather. It is entirely wipeable and basically waterproof which makes it the PERFECT summer bag for moms. I can definitely say that it has exceeded my expectations and it is worth the cost. I’ll be toting this one around all Summer!
