Books And Bikinis

May 17, 2010

For all of you brides-to-be who might be packing and planning for your honeymoons, don’t forget to bring a good read and a cute new swim suit!  Here are some books and bikinis we love this season:

The Help, by Kathryn Stockett: set in Jackson, MS in 1962, Miss Skeeter shares with the reader her relationships with her friends, parents, beau and most importantly the black maids who care for white families in her town.  A truly fascinating read.

Rebecca, by Daphne de Maurier: this firey (literally) mystery is the perfect balance of romance and suspense.  An oldie, but a great beach read!

The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald: if you skipped reading this in high school, it’s definitely worth a re-read.  While ultimately a story of unrequited love, you’ll love being whisked back to the fabulous parties and glamour of the roaring 20s!

We obviously love all of the vintage-inspired swimwear this season!  Here are some of our favorites:

Betsey Johnson Patty Cakes Demi Top and Skirt Bottom (top left); Diane Von Furstenberg “Bonnie Pin-up” Bikini Top and High-Waisted Bottom, available at Bloomingdale’s (top right); Marc by Marc Jacobs One-piece Ruffle Bandeau, available at Bloomingdale’s (bottom left); JCrew Cape-stripe Underwire Bikini (bottom right).
