Friday Faves of April


Next week kicks off the final days of my 20s and will be fun-filled with celebrations & travel.  Let's hope all the May flowers that our April showers (and miserable winter) have earned us pop up early. Happy weekend!

One-Piece Swimsuits Under $100

I am heading to Florida for a belated spring break trip later this month and I cannot wait to sit by the pool.  Lately I have been wearing one-piece swimsuits that I find are much more flattering than the two-piece I used to wear.  The styles have come a long way to be fun, trendy and not at all matronly or conservative.  I'm looking to purchase a new one for the trip so rounded up some options - all under $100!

Which one is your favorite?
