I hate matchy-matchy looks but I love things that kinda sorta but not really match. That’s why I’ve always had a problem with printed bikinis; I dislike the head-to-toe look that they create, even though two itty-bitty pieces of stretchy fabric don’t exactly cover my head or my toes.


So I’ve been looking for some easy to mix-and-match bikini separates and I think I found the perfect solution. These black-and-white bikini separates from Anthropologie are a fantastic example of mixing and matching well:



And when my shopping ban officially ends next month I will be just in time for the end-of-season swimwear sales. Oh joy! (That is my expression of glee and also the source blog that inspired this post.)

    Maybe you could make changes to the page name Mix-and-Match Closet Ambitions to something more catching for your subject you make. I liked the blog post even sononetheless.
