Laing/SUNSCREEN: (c/o) First Aid Beauty There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up early on a hot spring day and taking a morning dip in the pool at one of your favorite hotels on the island, The Brazilian Court Hotel. Throw in a tropical smoothie, a copy of The New York Times and I’m in heaven. The Brazilian Court Hotel is a historic luxury hotel located in the heart of Palm Beach, Florida. Equally rich in history and architecture, the hotel has been restored from bungalows to what it is today – an elegant retreat with discreet accommodations and a beautiful pool surrounded by lush landscaped courtyards. I recently went shopping for bathing suits and immediately gravitated towards this striped bikini by J.Crew. I love J.Crew bathing suits because of their craftsmanship. They use durable fabrics and offer a wide selection of fits and styles to choose from. I also love this bathing suit because… I mean, hello! Stripes! Totes adorbs. This bikini top fits me a lot like my favorite push-up bra does. It gives me extra lift and helps to add curves to my petite frame. I recommend this top for those who need a little oomph (like me) or for those who need extra support. Every now and then it’s nice to cover up. I love this boy short bottom because it offers slightly more coverage than your typical string bikini bottom or Brazilian cut bottom. Speaking of covering up, I wore a cute romper from local Palm Beach boutique, C.J. Laing over my bikini. I love how it ties in the center and shows a hint of skin. It’s one of those pieces you can throw in your suitcase when heading to a tropical location. In case you haven’t noticed on my Instagram account, these sandals are quickly becoming my favorites. I’ve worn them so many times and love how chic they are. Signing off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday afternoon… As always, thanks for stopping by! Xo, Stephanie P.S.
