The weather here in the San Francisco bay area has been amazing recently; it feels like we’ve been catapulted directly into summer! (No complaints here.) So, as you can imagine, we’re definitely taking advantage of it. The local parks are packed with people sunbathing, picnicking, and playing with their pets and/or kids. This past weekend, I enjoyed a fun swimsuit shopping spree, and then got to wear my shopping finds on a sailing adventure (my first time sailing!) out on the SF Bay with two dear friends and their new little bundle of joy.
We sailed around the SF Bay, right past the infamous Alcatraz.
Have you made your way through the swimwear racks yet this season? I had quite a lot of fun diving right into the packed racks of brightly-colored swimwear at Target. They’re filled with plenty of fun and flouncy, easy-to-mix-and-match pieces (with on-trend details like decorative back straps) that are perfect for your stylish, active lifestyle.
If you’re looking for a versatile, flattering and chic look for your next trip to the beach or nautical adventure, read on for one of my favorite picks of the season!
Some of the biggest fashion trends this spring include ruffles, universally-flattering neutrals, and cut-out detailing. And all of them are represented in this beautiful bikini from Target!
I love the large, soft front ruffle with intricate laser-cut florals, and the soft, feminine warm blush tone. Both the top and bottom are remarkably comfortable and easy to wear. The top, with its adjustable back straps and decorative front, is particularly flattering for those of us that are less curvaceous on top. The bottom has a flattering hipster fit with cute ruched side detail, and full back coverage. The overall effect: demurely flirtatious, and utterly classy.
This is an ensemble that makes one feel exquisitely glamorous. And amazingly, you can create this celeb-style worthy look for less than $50 at Target! The bikini top and bottom are $33 (Target frequently has great promotions, so it’s likely that you may be able to find them for even less), and the straw, gold-detailed wide-brimmed hat is $15.
For full elite-status effect, curl your hair in soft, beachy waves, top gently with the hat (create an asymmetrical curve with the brim so that one side tilts upward, and the other curves gently over your eye, like a softly-swept bang), pull on a few large, textured gold jewelry pieces as accent, and finish with a pair of over-sized shades for optimal mysterious ‘incognito’ allure. (For reference, my entire outfit shown is from Target’s current collection.)

I have always loved Target’s commitment to providing current, high-quality designs and fashion styles for super-reasonable prices. Since childhood, I’ve enjoyed shopping there for everything from beautiful interior decoration accent pieces to fashion designer collaboration pieces. As such, it was remarkably fun and easy to put this look together. There are so many great, affordable style finds for fashionistas of all ages and styles!
Do you have any spring break plans with your girlfriends, or upcoming summer vacation trips to plan for? If so, check out what Target has to offer; they have such a great range of on-trend swimwear, you’re sure to find something that suits (no pun intended) your personal style. Have fun finding something that makes you feel special and beautiful, and then go out and enjoy the sun! Find your style – @targetstyle. 😀

[…] I had an absolute blast being a #TargetStyle influencer for their swimwear collections, featuring a beautiful swimwear look for a bargain, showing how to mix-and-match swimsuit separates, and brainstorming creative ways to incorporate […]
Hello Hottie! That suit looks so amazing on you! It looks like such a pretty day for a sail around the bay! Look-y there, I rhymed. lol.
I’m absolulty loving the suit all together. I’m also loving the boat, oh how I wish I was with you. I can’t wait to get out on the water and for it to warm up.
Thank you!! It’s getting a bit warmer now, hope some aquatic adventures in your near future~ 😀
The weather is already nice in your area! It’s great to see people enjoying a summer weather 🙂
The swimsuit looks good on you. I am going to check out Target for some vacation clothes I can find 🙂
It is – we got lucky! 🙂
Thank you, and good luck finding some cute items for vacationing! Besides the clothing, I’m really loving their hats – they work well for traveling. 😀
Sailing in the San Francisco bay looks absolutely amazing and so much fun! The weather is looking great there; it’s finally getting warm down here in Austin, as well. We are loving getting to go outside and actually enjoy it!
It was quite an experience! Hope things are now warm enough that you’re enjoying the outdoors~ 🙂
I can’t believe you are sailing already in San Francisco! The weather is not quite that warm here in Washington but the winter has been fairly mild again this year. That is a
super cute swimsuit and I love the color!
You look glamorous on your swimwear and your lucky to live in San Francisco to enjoy the beautiful weather.I just can’t wait to warm up.
I’d like a bathing suit that covers more skin than a two piece. I’m a big girl and don’t like my flab hanging out. I do like the color you’re wearing. It’s beautiful and calming to the eye.
Sailing in San Fran sounds amazing! It is thawing in Chicago, but Lake Michigan still won’t be ready for fun in the sun and swimming for a few more months. What a cute bathing suit–I always get mine from Target!
Oooh, yeah, I’ve been around Lake Michigan (husband’s family lives in WI); that does stay pretty cold! It’s beautiful, though. 🙂 Hope you have fun suit shopping at Target in the meantime!
Target has closed in Canada. And we have snow right now. I’m so jealous! And you look fabulous.
You are gorgeous in that swimwear. I love the color and that style. Now, if only I have a body lie yours, I would buy that, lol. The hat and the bracelet surely adds elegance. The first shot of your full body is my favorite, gorgeous!
Thank you for all of your super-sweet comments!! <3 You know, the swimsuit actually works really well as a layered outfit with jean shorts and a lace top layered over the top… I'm always looking for items that I can mix well with other pieces. 🙂
That’s definitely a cute and summery look! I’m surprisingly attracted to that bracelet. It works so well with the outfit and looks glitzy.
Thanks!! <3 It's also super low-maintenance, which is the best part (elasticized, comfy, durable).. 😉
