As my roommates and I live not too far from Medicine Lake in Plymouth, MN that has a bunch of beaches to go sun-tanning or swimming, I went through my swim suits and noticed I had once that's good for tanning but terrible for swimming. And a one-piece swimsuit. So I decided it was probably time to go on a little shopping splurge and get myself some bikinis for the summer. Which lead me to Victoria Secret where I ended up purchasing four different suits (four tops and three bottoms). I wanted each of them to have a completely different style and design, so I could mix and match or didn't end up wearing the same suit to death all summer long.

Unfortunately, these beaches don't allow for Pixie to join me, but we can go a ways down from the main swimming area as Pixie loves swimming and chasing after sticks or balls. But I do think I'll be getting her a life jacket as she does get tired after an hour, even though she'll refuse to take a break until I physically drag her back to shore and force her to stay on land to rest.
Some of the designs that I got were the following:
