The weather has been absolutely perfect in Chicago over the last week, and I’ve certainly been taking advantage of it. (A person can only work on home improvement projects for so long! ;)) My favorite summer spot right now? North Avenue Beach. Oh. My. Goodness. It’s walkable from our new apartment, the water is florescent, and there are endless food and drink options. I’ll always be a Jersey Shore girl at heart, but Lake Michigan is pretty darn fabulous.


Anyway, I’ve been living in my monogrammed bikini top and bottom from RahRah Designs. So adorable, right?! I love that the suit is comfortable, flattering, and has slots for padding–something I definitely need, haha. I also love the endless possibilities for mixing and matching!

The ordering process is super easy, too. I’d monogram everything I own if it were possible, but I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve screwed up due to confusing directions and website designs. RahRah’s is awesome, though. You enter your initials in the order they will appear (first, last, middle), select your monogram type (script, circle, double circle or diamond), and then pick your thread color: white, bright pink, light pink, navy, turquoise, red, orange, yellow, green or purple. Easy. (Check out the company’s Monogram Guide, as well!)

In terms of sizing, I sized up to a size small in both the top and bottom, and the fit is just right. (For reference, I normally wear a size 0 or XS, and a size 25 or 26 in jeans.)

And with that, it’s back to the beach I go… :) Happy Sunday!
