Poolside Reads + 10 One Pieces I am Loving

Jun 29, 2018

TGIF Friends!  I can’t believe this is the last weekend in June!  I have been on a real reading quick lately so I wanted to share a few books I have read recently and really liked.  I also rounded up some of my current favorite one pieces.

When Life Gives you Lululemons

This is a sort of sequel to the Devil Wears Prada.  I loved this one and read it so quickly!!

One Piece- Also this one of my favorite one pieces, it is so flattering!!  Trust me you will love it.  I am wearing a size 6, and it comes in so many great colors!

A Match Made in Manhattan

This was a cute book about online dating.  Each chapter focuses on a different man she meets and dates.  It was a fun and easy read!

The Couple Next Door

This one kept me guessing, so many twists.  I read it in like 2 days!

How To Murder Your Life

This book is the real life story of Cat Marnell the beauty editor at Lucky magazine and her struggle and addiction to drugs and how her life spiraled out of control.  This was crazy good!

The Secret to Southern Charm

This is the second in a series, the first was called Slightly South of Simple.   I loved both of them and can’t wait for the next one.  The story follows 3 sisters and their mom.  Each chapter is told by different character’s view.

The Queen of Hearts

My sister recommended this because her book club was reading it and I loved it.  It is based out of Charlotte which was cool about the relationship between 3 med students and secrets that they carried.

The Perfect Couple

I am reading this one right and it is so good.  I always love Elin’s books they are the perfect Summer read.



A Few One Pieces I am digging!

Reversible One Piece

I am obsessed with this pattern and love that it is reversible.

Fiesta One Piece

I amy have to order this one, I saw my friend Megan wearing it and it is gorgeous.

Off Shoulder Suit

High Neck One Piece

Love the colors and high halter neck on this one.

Strapless One Piece

One Shoulder Suit

I love the color combo on this one and its 40% off!

Strapless One Piece

I love the rib material and hot pink color.  Plus the back is so cute!!  I tend to gravitate towards one pieces because of tan lines.

    These are cute bathing suits! I especially like the red one with the ruffle too cute.

    Now I know YOU wear size 6 and small like my daughter I wish you had a friend – cousin- aunt in a size 16/18 or xtra large ( which probably sounds huge to you ….). So that the two of you go on a mission to wear the same style of dress or bathing suit or skirt. In the small and larger size

    It will not be easy to find the same style that will look as good on 16 as it looks on 6

    Best way to go is find the flattering style on 16 or xtra large and you will look great in just about anything!!
    This is my Friday challenge to you. Interesting?

    I will try some of the suggested books too

    For an easy, funny read I suggest Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan. It does not fit into your usual type of book you suggest but it is about raising kids and I think you would relate to a lot of the antics about children and parenting.
    Very easy read.
