yesterday i was totally spent, so i knew i needed a change of scenery.  the beach. 
 i wore my new one-piece, a ruffled abs suit i scored at TJ maxx for a steal.
I tried to track it down, and while searching, i found some other amazing ruffled suits.
could not find this exact one but found one that looks to be the same, just under a different brand.
$88 !
are y’all bikini or one piece kind of gals?  I go back and forth myself…
JB is normally not a one piece fan (shocker) but he likes this one.

    I love one pieces but I can't wear them due to my freakishly long torso. It's an issue. But I haven't been out in the sun for two years so I can't justify buying all the cute suits I keep seeing!

    These are so cute.

    I am more of a two piece fan but these swimsuits are so pretty maybe I will have to give a one piece a go.

    im dying. i LOVE the look of a one piece..and i would probably rock it to a beach party, pool party etc (do people still have those? in LA they do..) and they stress me out and make me feel self conscious and these new one pieces that are sexy and flattering alleviate that..BUT 90% of the time im in the sun for tanning purposes..and well..they just dont help much with that.

    Very pretty! I love ruffles. And one piece swim suits! They make me feel fancier, especially if there's a floppy hat involved!

    adorable. i rarely can fit in a one piece right – i have a super long torso and they always look silly on me. Hope the beach was fabulous!

    I LOVED all the ruffled suits you pinned. I'm a ruffle addict too. Your one-pice looks great on you! For some reason, everytime I try on a one piece, I just look like a big kid! I think you ned to have great proportion (like you) to pull it off.

    I'm loving the ruffle bathing suit look and yours looks adorable! My husband also hates one pieces, of course my 55 yr old mother still wears a bikini so he says I can't wear a one piece until she does! (Don't worry she's not scary she's one of those looks 40 not 55 women and is tiny and skinny!)

    I am LOVING ruffles on bikinis. And that black one you found is stellar.

    I'm totally a bikini girl. I haven't worn a one piece since I was in elementary school. Not because I don't think they are adorable though.

    Have a good weekend Sarah!!

    That suit you snagged from TJ Maxx is INCREDIBLE! So chic! I am thinking of getting a flattering one piece this year. Am I getting old? No, but modesty on the beach can be oh so sexy too!

    Could you share more about how you stay so fit and slender? I'd love to get some healthy habits tips, etc. I mean, duh, I know the obvious! Eat well, live well. It can just be more difficult than that when cooking for one or two people.

    Without fail my husband teases me when I put on my one piece! But I don't care, it does something wonderful for my lady friends up top and makes me feel slim and tight. I also can't help but pretend I'm Amanda Seyfried in Mama Mia!

    oh dear, I love the one in the middle. oh dear, oh dear!! πŸ™‚

    I'm a one piece fan but seriously they don't fit me well. At least the ones I like. And two pieces are demonic chains on my curvy tush.

    So I just avoid the public water scene :).
    I know I'm pathetic.
