As we welcome August, summer in Silicon Valley is still going strong! A complete shock compared to the foggy San Francisco weather I am so used to. If you follow me on Instagram, you may or may not know that I have relocated to San Jose for a (full-time!) social media focused role. A huge moment for myself and much deserving of pool-side downtime whenever I get the chance!
Picture it: The sun is beaming, miles of coastline, linen button ups, sand between you toes — you get the vibe. If I could describe my style, it would be a classic twist of modern and vintage feel (I love a good one-piece as a heads up). Here is a round up of ethical swim wear I would very much reach for myself.
The Shoulder Tie Swimsuit is romantic with its adjustable ties and low back cut out. You can’t go wrong with their solid black, taupe, or navy blue shades either. The label is designed by a former Vogue fashion stylist.
Made from 82% Recycled Polyamide, 18% Elastane
The Many Moons Ruched One Piece has a flattering square neckline, curved low back and a soft ruched body. The exclusive print to Peony is perfect to hit the beach with.
Made from 78% ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon 22% Elastane, Lining 90% Repreve® Regenerated Fibres
The Indigo Stripe Triangle is an ode to summer! Pair it with some linen shorts, brown leather sandals, and a tote for an effortless look.
