Black one piece, where art thou?

October 15, 2016

So, I’m heading to Cabo in 14 days. 14 days! I can’t wait for lots of sunshine, pool time and tecate. My soul needs a break from the grind.

I used to be the type to have a full wardrobe for vacation, collecting sundresses and shorts and tanks for weeks before. Not anymore. I realized that I spend 95% of the time in a swimsuit by the pool while on a tropical vacation, so all I really need is a killer, comfortable swimsuit and a couple of outfits left over from the summer. Easy peasy.

I have a cute navy one-piece that I have worn the crap out of for the past few years. I still love it, but I want to add another suit to the rotation. Specifically, I want a plunge black one-piece. I’ve combed the internet this morning for a few options. Here’s my consideration list:


First up, we have this crocheted lace-up number by Billabong via the Nordstrom website. It’s a bit more conservative, but still fresh with the detailing. It’s a bit pricey for me at $79.95, so I feel concerned as to whether or not the crochet can withstand the test of time.


Next up, we have this little ditty from Target for $39.95. I like the cut of it, but I haven’t always been in love with the quality and fit of Target swimwear. Is it worth the risk? I need to be comfortable at the swim-up bar, people!


Last is this uber-plungey cutey from ASOS for a steal-of-a-deal at $30 bones.  I like the cut of this one the most. I want to be a siren by the pool in my black one-piece. I’ve never ordered swimwear from Asos, so I’m in uncharted territory going down this road, but I think I’m going to take the risk with this bad boy. The good news is that it will be here in a couple of days and I can reassess if it’s not all I’m hoping it will be. Wish me luck!
