H I T H E R E ! ! To make up for not posting Monday, I'm posting today AND tomorrow AND Friday! Woo Hoo! So I'm still not off of the swimwear binge- I love finding new, fun swimwear lines because bathing suits are one of those things that are so hard to find when you really need them. I'm always flipping through the J.Crew sale section last minute or headed to some department store only to be disappointed with the selection... so here is a new brand that you are SURE to love! It's called Flagpole Swim.
Flagpole was started by best friends Jaime Barker and Megan Balch. The two grew up in West Palm Beach, which destined their partnership designing swimwear. The line is named after the duo's favorite beach spot that they and their friends affectionately called "flagpole".
FUN FACT :: Jaime and I met when I was interning at Macy's my Senior year summer in New York. Our cubicles were right next to each other and we became fast friends, bonding over the fact that we were the only southern girls in *practically* the whole building. It was Jaime's first year in the work force after graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design and I remember her telling me how she and her friend were starting a swimwear line on the side. I never thought I would see them featured in InStyle so soon!! Jaime is one of the funniest people I have ever met and I'm positive that her sense of humor and zest for life will take her very far in this world... it seems as though it already has!
These are some of my favorite pics from Flagpole's Spring 15 Collection.

C O N F E S S I O N :: I'm a last-minute procrastinator..... SURELY I'm not the only one!! So for all of you procrastonators out there, it's about time to get Graduation gifts!
