Bike Riding Along The Gulf

I think I’ve found a new passion: bike riding! The saying is true, you never forget how to ride a bike. I hadn’t ridden in years and I was able to pick it up again this past weekend. I just love riding around beach towns! You don’t have to worry about parking and you really get to explore all the little roads you would never think to explore by car. Plus you get to run into local wildlife! It’s something I’m still getting used to after moving from LA. This bird was straight up chilling on the bridge.

I first rode along the boardwalk in Treasure Island and then along Gulf Blvd. to Johns Pass in Madeira Beach. Not very long of a ride, but you have to start somewhere right!

These Same Swim bikinis have been everywhere on social media, and it’s safe to say they are THE swimsuits of the summer. They are the definition of sexy boho. Unfortunately, the price is way out of a lot of people’s price ranges. The top is $195 and the bottom is $165. Like, what?!

I recently found incredibly similar versions at Dillard’s by one of their private labels, Gianni Bini.

Bandeau top & bottom – $108 total

High-neck top & bottom – $110 total

They’re so comfortable and high quality, I’m so happy with my purchase! My top is size M and my bottom is size S. The bandeau top is perfect for layering and wearing it around my beach town.
