Miramar

express-swimwear-could-i-have-thatI’ve seen my fair share of beaches in this world. From Spain and France to Hawaii and the Seychelles, it’s safe to say that I lean towards places that require little to no clothes—i.e. bikini weather. Of all the sandy spots I’ve logged some R&R time in, I have to say Santa Barbara holds its own when it comes to beach destinations. I found myself plopped on a towel near Biarritz, France and thinking, “this feels just like Miramar Beach,” a gem on the coast by Montecito. Some friends recently rented a beach house there for a whole week and I was reminded of it’s unparalleled charm.

Since I’ll find any excuse to slip into a swimsuit, I thought I should share one of my favorite basic finds I recently came across from Express—yes they do swimwear! I spotted this timeless, simple black one-piece that has become a staple as of late. Its one of those finds that is so classic you know it’s worth scooping up. I threw on a slightly sheer poncho/cover up that I also found from Express. Shop some other favorites I discovered below, they’re easy on the wallet too!

Express coverup (another great find here) and swimsuit, Celine sunglasses (similar).
