Summer’s Not Over Yet!
Shop the look:
I know summer is sadly coming to an end, and many fashionistas are already donning their cardigans and boots. However, I am almost never one of those bloggers who is ahead of the curve when it comes to seasonal dressing.
This is generally because wherever I happen to be living did not get the memo that the seasons are switching. Going into summer? Eh, we’ll have a snow storm and below freezing temperatures. Going into fall? How about some 90-degree weather and high humidity? And that is exactly what is happening right now – it is HOT in Jersey, still. I have not even considered turning my air conditioner off yet, and wearing a bathing suit to the beach is still appropriate (even if these photos were taken in Cape Cod).
I know the last time I did a swimsuit post was with an Esther Williams vintage inspired swimsuit, and many people really liked it…just not the high price tag. Fortunately, this high-waisted suit is only $22! AMI Clubwear has a a whole bunch of swimsuits on sale, right now. And they come in a wide range of sizes. Many of you may not be in the market for a swimsuit, as the summer is almost over. However, now is the time to consider buying one – especially with all the awesome sales going on (and not just at AMI, just about every store is clearancing out swimwear right now)!
I’ve only had a chance to wear this suit a couple times, so I can’t give a full analysis on the quality of it just yet. However, it was comfortable every time I wore it and it’s survived the washing machine – so it’s off to a good start! I really like that this top has some more support than my other suits, too.
The one negative about this suit, though, is it seems to make me look a little more bootylicious than I actually am. I’m not complaining or anything :), this is just an observation I’ve noticed from the cut of this suit. (And I’ve had to look at enough photos of myself in a swimsuit now, to know that this one has a little bit of a different fit than I’m used to. Haha.) It’s also a bit more shiny looking than the retro matte look of the Esther Williams suits – just something to be aware of. But for $22, you just can’t beat that price!
How’s the weather by you? Does it actually feel like fall? Or am I not the only one still dying in the heat? Let me know in the comments!

You look so stunning in this bathing suit! I really wish it was hot enough to wear one here, but unfortunately it’s quite chilly here now with the occasional warm days. Send over some hot weather my way please:-)
Thank you so much, Ela! I would gladly send you some hot weather if I could! I am so ready for cooler fall-like weather. 🙂
I’m loving this retro bathing suit! You look so beautiful in it. It’s also still hot here in Southern California. No signs of fall yet, unfortunately!
Thank you so much, Zoey! It is still hot in NJ too, haha. I’ll probably be going to the beach again this weekend! Oh well – better than snow! 🙂
You look sooo gorgeous in that bathing suit! Complete hottie! 😉
It is starting to feel like autumn in my town, and I couldn’t be happier about it 😀
Aw thank you so much, Mona! I’m a bit jealous that it feels like fall by you! Haha. Hope you had a great weekend!
I love everything with polka-dots.. and this swim suit is a winner! Looks great on you too! 🙂
The weather over here in the Netherlands has been rainy for almost the whole week! I guess this weekend, I’m staying in! 😛

Thank you so much, Natassia! Nothing wrong with spending the weekend in! 🙂
Haha, we’re cut from the same cloth here. I have two swimsuit pieces coming out in the next week or two still! And I don’t wanna wear boots and a cardigan until I actually HAVE TO to keep warm in photoshoots haha! You look wonderful in these photos! Great suit! XO
Haha! Glad to hear I’m not alone, Lauren! And thank you so much! Looking forward to seeing your posts!
I love this suit on you, and for $22 you can’t beat it! The polka dots are so fun and the cut looks great! I’ll be in Jersey this weekend and I’m looking forward to spending some time on the beach! Glad you had fun in the Cape too!

Thank you so much, Lee! I have never been so excited for fall before either!! Haha. 🙂
You look fabulous Lindsey! Loving the little red polka dots on the swim suit. This view too. It never gets old, ever. It definitely still feels like summer in PA! Im dying in the 90 heat haha. We had a short cool streak and now its extremely hot.
Thank you so much, Amanda! That view makes the warm temps quite bearable. 🙂 Hopefully the East Coast cools down soon!
