Warm Weather


For as long as I can remember, J. Crew has been my go-to for swimsuits. I find shopping for swimsuits to be incredibly intimidating and it can be frustrating when you don’t feel good in one. I love that J. Crew offers tons of styles and silhouettes in a wide range of patterns, prints, and colors. There is really something to match everyone’s tastes, whether you’re looking for a family-friendly simple suit or something a little more punchy for a fun vacation. Now it’s J. Crew’s most inclusive swim collection ever with sizes XXS to 3X and 00-24, plus DD and long torso styles.

Another thing to love about J. Crew? You can get a head-to-toe look you love without having to go anywhere else.

Very few of my bathing suits fit me right now, so I loved this post as an opportunity to try a new style out. This ruched bandeau one-piece feels great on and it has a very forgiving fit. Lots of coverage everywhere, which is my preference! (Especially for family vacations.) I also know I will be spending a lot of time in and by the water with an increasingly active and mobile water baby. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging or pinching or feeling uncomfortable in any way. I just want to be able to have FUN with my son and feel good while doing it.

We also need to discuss this cotton-linen blend beach shirt. I bought it in white last year and absolutely loved wearing as a coverup. I know this blue and white striped one will also be in heavy rotation. I love that you get a little extra sun protection without sacrificing style. The length is great, too. Again…. coverage!!!

Is a casual poolside look complete without a cute hat and giant tote? Nope!

Their suits really are the best and I’ve been eyeing these shirts for a couple of seasons – thank you for sharing! As mamas I think one of the best things we can do for ourselves and our children is put on the suit and get in the water with them whether we realllly want to our not it’s that time together they will remember. I only remember my mom sitting on the side not feeling confident in a suit 🙁


J Crew makes the best swimsuits. I have this same style (in a diff pattern/color) and it’s perfect for postpartum and Moms!


I JUST ordered the linen cover up last night in white! Hoping a Small fits! A little oversized is perfect. You look amazing in that suit Carly! J.Crew really does have so many amazing options.


This is a great look for swimwear and on you! I also love JCrew for the same reasons you mentioned. I do often need larger sizes and JCrew fits my size/shape very well. The suits might be a bit more expensive, but they also wear for years.
