bikini haul: budget friendly options!


Ya’ll.. I kind of feel like summer is officially here! The sun is shining, it’s Memorial Day and with this beautiful warm weather comes beach trips, pool days and (of course) bikini shopping! I know that over the next few months I’m going to be spending so many weekends hanging at the pool and the lake with my family, so for me the more bikinis I can swap out (without having to do laundry every day) the better!

I just ordered tons of new styles and I am obsessing over them, because not only are they cute, comfortable and high quality fabric, but literally every single one I ordered is less than 40 dollars. It’s true! You cannot beat these deals, so I had to share them with ya’ll!

I love this navy blue striped lace-up bikini because it’s the perfect festive swimsuit for Memorial Day and July 4th! It’s padded and gives you great support in the top, and the bottoms are full coverage which is a must for me!

I saw this bikini on the Target website and loved the floral pattern! It almost has a tropical feel, and I like that it has more coverage than most bikinis do! Perfect for chasing a toddler around haha.

Okay so apparently this year I like neon and animal print, who knew! This animal print bikini has a stretchy ribbed texture and hugs your skin without feeling too tight. I also love the fit of the top, almost like a sports bra!

This neon orange bikini top has a unique square neckline and you can find it in so many fun colors on the Target website! The bottoms are the same ones I paired with the floral top and they’re perfect to mix and match.

I love finding solid tops and bottoms because they’re a great way to revamp other bikinis that you’ve had in your closet for years.

I had never ordered Aerie bathing suits until this year and ya’ll I am shook! I love them so much.

How fun is this space dye print? Tie-dye is super on trend right now and I feel like this bikini is the perfect play on it without being too over the top! I also love how supportive the straps are!

Okay, this might be one of my favorites – it’s a one piece, but it’s so flattering and kind of sexy! This swimsuit ties and accentuates your waistline while still being comfy and not squeezing your stomach. Most people hear one-piece and think they’ll look matronly, but I promise this is far from it! So cute.

I loved this neon bikini so much I bought the top in multiple colors! Does anyone else feel like neon makes them look more tan? The plunge neckline has a sporty look, but it’s still feminine and I really like the deep v-neck. I paired it with these classic bikini bottoms that are full coverage and super versatile!

You can’t beat a classic triangle top! This burnt orange color is so pretty, and I paired it with the same classic bikini bottoms for a two-toned neon look.

When I told you I’m into animal print this year, I wasn’t kidding! I had to share this last one with ya’ll because the high waist was just too cute to pass up! So flattering, so comfortable, and I love the criss-cross detail of the scoop neck top.

Okay wow… bikini overhaul! But seriously, I am obsessed with all of these swimsuits and I wanted ya’ll to be in the loop so you can hop on it before these deals are sold out!

I hope you had a restful and rejuvenating Memorial Day weekend! If you try any of these bikinis, make sure to tag me on Instagram and let me know what you think of them! Thank you so much for reading!
