Being by the pool is the next best thing to being by the beach. I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy pool days. They can be so fun and relaxing at the same time without the sometimes pesky sand. Come summer, well even now, I’m going to try to incorporate more pool days into my weekends. And have you seen some of the pool floats recently?! I’m linking my favorites at the end of this post. Heads up: you’ll want them all. As for chilling by the pool, who says you always have to wear a swimsuit? A nice picnic-type lunch in a pool cabana or drinks with a few girlfriends would be the perfect opportunity for this maxi skirt + bodysuit combo.
If you like this bodysuit and have a pair of old leggings, you’re in luck. I made it and so can you! Just wait until tomorrow for the tutorial. If you’d like to see what I would wear to the pool during the day (swimsuit and all), I wrote a post featuring some pieces here.
I have been loving to make clothes recently. If I see something I like while shopping that looks relatively easy to make, I take a photo and then try to recreate it (hence the DIY gathered top). I have a clothing rack in my room and I plan to fill it with all of my own creations. Now if I could just get my hands on a serger, then I can make clothes without being worried that they’ll fall apart, lol.
