Yesterday my friend Jenn and I had a bit of a day to ourselves, which we decided to spend in Williamsburg. Beginning our day with Swedish roasted coffee at Konditori on 7th Ave., we hit up a couple of shops, one of which included Monk, a vintage/thrift stop located on Driggs Ave. I found a couple of shirts, a skirt, and a pair of shoes which totaled $43, not bad for scoring summer threads before June.

We then stopped inside The Meatball Shop on Bedford to wet our whistles with French 75 Jelly Shots, drinks (bourbon for me and Chianti for her), and spicy meatball sandwiches with arugula salads. After dinner we hit up The Levee on Berry St. just in time for $1 pbrs, although the menu read $3 each. Maybe the bartender just thought we were cute? We'll never know...
Jenn spotted a high-waisted two-piece swimsuit in a shop window with a price tag through the ceiling, which inspired me to post about affordable swimsuits for summer 2013. Beach week will be here before you know it, ladies (my roommate just left for Cancun only today and it's not even mid-May!!), which is why you should probably start thinking about what will be tag-worthy and won't break the bank! Here are 10 ideas to get you started:
Sequin top and bottom, both on sale at $16.12
Space Print top- $25.46, bottom- $16.97
Solid bustier top- $25.46, bottom- $16.97
Asymmetrical Ruffle top and bottom both $27.15
Crochet top- $13.80, bottom- $9.80
Chococat onepiece $22.80
Bikini top- $14.95
and bottoms- $9.95
How's that for a start? Go ahead and view the board on Pinterest I created, for more swimsuit inspiration. Just don't forget the sunscreen...
